Sweet Butter Kitchen

breakfast - restaurant

Could there be a better name for a breakfast place?!

Located right next door to Tori Spelling’s home decor shop in Sherman Oaks, Sweet Butter Kitchen has had very mixed reviews online

…I’ve a feeling mostly because it can be a headache to eat there sometimes…

IMG_8249

…but at 11am this morning, street parking was a cinch (they also have valet) and we snagged the best seats in the house.

As the sign says, you order at the counter…

IMG_8262

…off the ginormous menu

IMG_8271

…and they bring your food out to you.

Very similar to Urth Caffe, Aroma, and the Larchmont Bungalow. Serve yourself water, utensils, etc.

We had an A.W.E. meeting; I wasn’t hungry enough for a full-on meal and ordered a Fruit Streusel Muffin from the bakery section…

…Blueberry Banana…

IMG_8282

…very moist and fluffy…

IMG_8290

…but as you can see, barely any fruit!

If I’m ever in the ‘hood with again, I’ll have to try one of their salads…

IMG_8269

…breakfast sandwiches, which both Jully and Elaine ordered…

IMG_8283

…or if I’m really hungry, their generous bowl of porridge.

Shortstop

movies - snacks

Sunday afternoon we had plans to see our friend Emily’s film at Funny or Die’s LA Comedy Shorts Festival.

I snacked beforehand…

…and brought one with me too…

Always forget how tasty Pirate’s Booty is! Wound up emptying it during the Q&A.

Look! There’s Emily!

This was the premiere of “Mouthbreather.” It will also be playing at LAAPFF, but at the same time as “Yes We’re Open,” so I’m glad we got a chance to see it. She did a wonderful job!

Back home I wasn’t too hungry at dinnertime, so the noshing continued…

IMG_8226

…last slice of Bx5, my favorite trail mix, frozen mango…

IMG_8233

…and later, a perfect pair…

IMG_8238

Miso and “Mad Men.”

It looks like Julius did the same thing all day, but we did take him out for exercise, I promise.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
