Okay, so it's one of the Marina's best kept secrets. Since I'm approaching 30,000 readers, I feel it's my duty as a blogger and a foodie to let you in on this hidden gem. We were looking for a new
place to eat in our soon-to-be new hood and one of my friends told me she loves Cafe Buna. We got there around 11 a.m. and had about a 20 minute wait, but that was okay because we took that time to check out all of the initials carved in an old tree.
Since my husband is all about not messsing with nature, we used a water-soluable pen to add our initials to the existing ones. When we got seated servers and food runners were exceptionally prompt and friendly. The menu is extensive and portions are pretty
big, so be prepared! If pancakes are your thing try the Red Velvet with Chocolate Chips ($10.25) The white chocolate chips are a dandy surprise! Neal's Cornflake French Toast ($8.25) with fresh strawberries and bananas is the best on the planet.
The cornflakes lend the perfect crunch to thick, moist, perfect French toast. Try the real Vermont maple syrup for $1 more. Hash browns ($4) are a thick square of crunchy goodness fried to crispy goodness. For $5, a side of Applewood Smoked
Bacon completes any breakfast entree. For a terrific breakfast you won't soon forget, Cafe Buna is where it's at! Cafe Buna 3105 Washington Blvd. Marina del Rey (310) 823-2430. Hours: 6 a.m.- 4 p.m. seven days a week.
Recommended Dishes: Cornflake French Toast, Applewoood Smoked Bacon, Hash Browns, Pancakes, Egg Dishes, coffee, hot chocolate.
