(HOLLYWOOD PRESS CORPS) — Los Angeles, CA — Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020 — Mary and Robbs is a neighbourhood coffee shop in Westwood. The new owner, Roozbeh Faranipour, just opened the cafe for sidewalk dining. Mary and Robbs has a reputation for serving gourmet American bistro fare. Mary and Robbs has the best breakfast in Westwood Village. Roozbeh is well known in the Westwood community. He is the owner of the Delphi Greek restaurant which is a few doors down from Mary and Robbs. Roozbeh is the president of the West Lost Angeles Chamber of Commerce and president of the L.A. chapter of the California Restaurant Association.
I stopped by Mary and Robbs for breakfast this last Tuesday. It was standing room only in the outdoor dining area. Roozbeh was very busy making sure everything was just right. I got a chance to speak to David Hekmat.David has owned Mary and Robbs for 41 years. He bought the restaurant from the previous owner in 1979! David picked Roozbeh to run Mary and Robbs and keep all the traditions, the staff and the same menu. Roozbeh told me that the Pulled Pork Sandwich is is his favourite item on the menu and that I’ll have to come back sometime and try it. For vegetarian options, Mary and Robbs offers the Beyond Burger. I can wait to try both of them!
The Eggs Benedict is a specialty here. Mary and Robbs uses a family recipe. I saw some the diners eating the Eggs Benedict and the Omelette s. They looked so good. Mary and Robbs is now offering delivery. You can call the restaurant at (310) 478-3822. They are also using Uber Eats, Postmates, GrubHub, and Doordash.
I stopped by Mary and Robbs early. I wanted to try the basic breakfast with eggs, hash browns, bacon and toast. It was so good. I would describe the food as gourmet diner food. The staff here is very consistent and they use the very best ingredients. The bacon was crispy, the eggs were cooked perfectly. I’m so excited to have a destination breakfast spot. It’s great that a community leader like Roozbeh has taken over Mary and Robbs traditions. The staff is enthusiastic and ready to get back to work. Once the pandemic ends, we’ll all be able to sit in the comfy booths and dine at the lunch counter.
The Hollywood Press Corps highly recommends Mary and Robbs. Stop by when you’re on the Westside of Los Angeles.
