Among ways to start the morning, eating a balanced breakfast is second only to jogging with the sheep you counted the night before. Get your stomach off on the right foot with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fresh café fare at Nuts ‘n Berries Cafe in Encino.
Armed with simple seasonings of sea salt and extra-virgin olive oil to let fresh ingredients shine on their own, the chefs at Nuts ‘n Berries decorate the menu with fresh breakfast and lunch dishes made from mostly organic components. Silence morning hunger pangs with a toasty breakfast burrito that tightly cuddles eggs, bacon, sausage, and hash browns ($5.95) so no ingredient can escape and spoil the end of Citizen Kane for anyone else. Afternoon appetites can lounge at the shiny window-side bar with the Nuts ‘n Berries trail mix ($2.50–$4.95) or out on the shaded patio while indulging in the veggie toss salad, which balances the bright flavors of fresh spinach, mandarin oranges, and edamame ($8.50). Whatever the day’s agenda, indulge in liquid strength with a Green Machine smoothie crafted from blended spinach, banana, mint, and the eatery’s secret stash of four-leaf clovers ($4.95).
