Open since 1974 in the heart of Marina del Rey, this family owned upscale diner/coffee shop is a happening place any day of the week. But come Sunday morning watch out; you'll wait 25 minutes
or more. The food is terrific and this family run eatery makes it from scratch using the finset ingredients. Service is friendly and we're happy to call it home! Though J. Nichols Kitchen serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we just go for the breakfast. The
Eggs Benedict ($12.50) is to die for! Served on a homemade English muffin are two perfect poached eggs, Canadian bacon, and lovely, creamy Hollandaise. My favorite is the Bacon Cheddar Scramble ($13.50). Yes, I get extra bacon, applewood smoked bacon to be
exact, plus scallions, Tillamook cheddar, and avocado. The scramble comes with the crispiest (is that a word?) hash browns and a homemade English muffin along with homemade jam. The traditional Corned Beef Hash and Eggs ($12.50) is homemeade with peppers,
potatoes, and onions and served with two eggs any style. We also love the Fried Egg and Arugula Sandwich ($11.50). Two sunnyside up eggs, gruyere cheese, applewood smoked bacon, black pepper mayo, arugula, and vinaigrette are served between twqo slices
of crisp rustic bread. Wash it all down with Santa Cruz's Verve coffee ($3) and you're good to start your day. Oh, don't forget to pick up a bag of English muffins ($8.99) to eat all week long! We love 'em! J Nichols Kitchen 4375 Glencoe Avenue,
