Eat in LA: Little Dom's

Italian sausage, peppers, and smoked mozzarella frittata

Ricotta cheese and blueberry pancakes with maple syrup

(Breakfast) Pizza with sunny side up eggs, speck, mozzarella, and tomato sauce


Over the past few years, I've learned that brunch can be a hit-or-miss experience. Oftentimes, over-hyped brunch spots don't live up to my expectations. Fortunately, Little Dom's in Los Feliz is not one of them. Their brunch is everything I wanted and then some. Last weekend, I visited the Los Angeles-based restaurant on Hillhurst and Avocado for the first time with two old friends.

After reading about the Breakfast Pizza on LAist, I knew I had to try it for myself. It has a thin, floury crust as its base, which is then covered with tomato sauce, mozzarella, sunny side up eggs, slices of speck (a type of prosciutto), and sprinkles of basil. It's pretty much as good as it looks. It's great for one (hungry) person, or for sharing with the whole table. It was prepared perfectly and would satisfy any fan of smoked pork and eggs. My friends had the frittata made with Italian sausage, peppers, and smoked mozzarella, and the ricotta and blueberry pancakes, both of which they enjoyed. I was also served a great cappuccino.

When we visited on a Sunday around 11, there was no wait, which is not often the case. They've got an old school restaurant vibe and seats named after celebrity patrons like Jon Hamm. The next time I visit, I'll probably try another one of their egg specials like the Polenta and Fried Egg or the Scrambled Eggs Bruschetta.

If you've stopped by Little Dom's, what did you try?

You're gonna need more photos of the Breakfast Pizza in your life. Stat.

Eat in LA: The Pie Hole

Earl Grey Tea pie

Mexican Chocolate pie


Although I've known about The Pie Hole for a couple years, I finally visited their Arts District location last week. Located on Traction Avenue on the eastern side of Downtown Los Angeles, this pie shop serves an impressive selection of pies in sweet and savory flavors as well as any type of coffee you desire.

When I stopped by with my mom, we ordered a slice of the Earl Grey Tea and the Mexican Chocolate pies. I also got a cappuccino and she a drip coffee. The pies were fantastic. The Earl Grey Tea had that delicate earl grey flavor that I love, a flaky pastry crust, a thin layer of chocolate in between, and was topped with pistachios. The Mexican Chocolate pie was made with a thick chocolate filling, a crumbly graham cracker crust, and a healthy portion of whipped cream. These pies were nothing like I've had before and completely satisfied my craving for pie, which has lasted for what's felt like years. This is one of those places where you know the food is made carefully and with a lot of love.

To top it off, they serve some great coffee, too. I've heard from several people that the coffee is a must-try, and even the main event if you're not in the mood for dessert. My cappuccino was huge and prepared perfectly. My mom also enjoyed her organic drip coffee.

The next time I visit, I'll try a Chicken and Cornbread Pot Pie or a Mac and Cheese Hand Pie. You can learn more about The Pie Hole by watching this video by The Bold Italic.
