Time Out says
The loukoumades (honey-walnut fritters) will tempt you. So will the duck confit hash. And that's okay. That's normal. But be careful with your expectations, because those airy fritters lack depth of flavor, and the eggs on that hash can be rubbery like Silly Putty. So perhaps your best bet at this breakfast spot is to skip breakfast altogether, and go for the lamb burger: thin lamb patty, soft potato bun, spicy feta spread…and no letdown.

When it comes time for the weekly brunch wars with friends, I always nominate Kanela as my warrior and it never disappoints. Everyone can find something here at a price point that's not too outrageous, and this particular location is great about handling crowds so you never feel like it's too busy or loud. It's standard brunch noise, sure, but not deafening like some places.
The Kanela roll (pictured) is practically mandatory. With a dough and a frosting that's not too sweet and a pillowy texture, it's also the perfect size to split with your dining companion when you're both pretending to be healthy. Other greatest hits include the chorizo and eggs, the lorraine scramble, and the chilaquiles. Everything is well-seasoned and comforting.
