[* this is a quick break from the PDX coverage that was supposed to end a month ago. I’ll be back to procrastinate on the PDX posts soon.]

Hey, it’s peach season! And what better way to celebrate the middle of stone fruit season than with a fresh peach pie. One of the best examples around is in Long Beach at local favorite, Jongewaard’s Bake n Broil (JBB).

JiST Cafe is open and serving six days a week at 5am. Familiar face, redone digs, totally different menu. JiST is a promising new addition to the neighborhood, filling a (partially filled) hole in the Little Tokyo dining scene.

Sycamore Kitchen – A New Contender for Best Brunch

11 Jul

20130630-130814.jpg
Maybe this title is getting ahead of me. One visit is not enough to take the crown from Huckleberry (I’ve been meaning to write up Zoe Nathan’s place for a long time). But I was kind of blown away by how great Sycamore Kitchen was.
