If you’ve got morning business to attend to Downtown, Little Tokyo’s JiST Cafe is the place to go for a super hearty start to the day. Their chashu hash skillet reimagines the classic breakfast potatoes with bacon and eggs as a Japanese-inflected dish complete with sticky rice on the side; if you’re looking for something lighter, they’ve got granola bowls and a Mean Lean Scramble Machine. Pancakes are made with a crème fraiche batter and topped with everything from quarter-sized chocolate coins to more traditional strawberries and bananas. If it’s nice outside, there’s a back patio where you can sit and eat.

It's my belief that the ideal brunch includes two entrees: one sweet and one savory. I went here last weekend and treated myself to the skillet hash and the dulce de leche pancake. While I wasn't expecting the skillet to be as sweet as it was, the combination of flavors still lingers in my mouth. There's plenty of seating and the service is friendly. Give this place a shot!
