IN THE MIX: Pancake review with special guest...
This weekend I had the honor of actress Jessica Luza (who some of you may know from “The Lost & Found Family,” and most recently from her guest starring role on “House”) join me as a reviewer for Ma’amCakes. Jessica and I visited the infamous - and I say infamous based on the line in the photo above - Toast Bakery Cafe on 3rd St and Harper Ave in Los Angeles,...
Pancake Review at: JINKY'S CAFE

I’m always slightly apprehensive to try a new restaurant, particularly because we all have our go-to spots- especially for pancakes!
