Meet Jane, Your New Home Away from Home

Your new favorite Highland Park brunch spot is like eating at home but, like, way better!

The great thing about Highland Park is that it’s one of LA’s oldest neighborhoods and yet it remains immune to the scourge of overdevelopment. Instead of being overrun by franchises and corporations, this place is populated with mom and pop businesses giving it a charm like no other neighborhood in Los Angeles. This is what makes living in Highland Park so comfortable. Cafe Jane Highland Park

So it only makes sense that Jane, the new café on York Blvd, would be inside a house. It perfectly represents the homey-ness of Highland Park and makes you feel like you’re walking into your grandma’s home for breakfast. The ambience is warm and inviting. And if the outside appearance makes you crave a delicious homemade meal, Jane will not disappoint you.

The menu has all of the classic dishes that we know and love, plus delicious twists on some of those classics, along with a variety of Mexican-, Korean-, and Japanese-inspired dishes.

The Classic French Toast is airy, fluffy and delightful. It’s covered in enough fresh strawberries and bananas that you can get pieces of fruit in every single bite. Topped off with crème fraiche, this dish is sweet but not cloyingly sweet, which is a nice departure from the usual slew of French toast.

The Banana Walnut Pancakes are the adult version of those delicious homemade pancakes you remember from your childhood. With their fluffy texture, they’re filling but won’t make you feel heavy. Bonus: it’s served with real maple syrup, crème fraiche, and soft butter.

Should you find yourself craving Korean BBQ and you are not willing to leave the comfort of Highland Park, come here. The Saam Bab should curb that bulgogi craving. These bulgogi lettuce wraps are packed with bold flavor.

The Kimchi Fried Rice is everything you want a savory dish to be. It has the hot, funky tang of kimchi, the saltiness of sautéed spam (yes, spam!), plus a beautiful, yolky egg on top. This will likely become your new hangover cure.
