Brunch at Blu Jam

Sunday brunch has to be one of my all-time favorite things on the planet.  I'm not alone in this, and I'm not breaking any ground by blogging about it.  But then, some things you do just for the love of it ... and I am particularly in love with the way they do brunch at Blu Jam Cafe on Melrose in Los Angeles.

First off, the lattes.  They taste delicious, but as any good foodie knows, you eat with your eyes first.  And sometimes your heart.  I swear I keep coming back just to see what they'll do next with their foam art.

Next, the crunchy french toast. Not their regular french toast, specifically the crunchy.  It's on their specials menu, and while the concept is nothing new, at Blu Jam it is ... because it's perfect.  It's the best of the best of the bunch who are making it.  No maple syrup here, but instead, this creamy, mildly sweet vanilla syrup that I have to fight the urge to drink it's so good. 

The key is that nothing on the plate is too sweet, so the fruit becomes more than a second rate garnish and instead elevates the dish.  To me, it's just a happy plate of Sunday. :)
