This place is very 50-50 for me. The menu and pretty much everything on it is great. The wait, however, is not. It follows that places with good food have a long wait, but I feel like they could reasonably speed up the service. There were nearly a dozen groups waiting outside while we waited 15 mins for our check.... More

Cici's has a huge menu with creative takes on breakfast standards. It is usually very crowded and parking is best in the back. But it is worth the effort and sometimes patience required to get a table.

We came here for lunch and waited for about 30 minutes on a Saturday but it was worth it! The menu is mostly breakfast but there's enough to satisfy most people. My wife had pancakes and I opted for a chicken wrap. It came with the most amazing (and surprising) side dish-Brussels sprout fries! They slice them in half, deep... More

With an expansive menu and plenty of choices for everyone, the toughest part of your visit here might be to find parking. Usually very crowded on the weekends, but worth the wait. Large selection of sweet and savory options for everyone. I enjoyed the hash benedict and my partner had the chopper. Service was good, and we enjoyed the atmosphere... More

Easily one of the best pancakes I ever had. They have 5 pages of pancakes on the menu. Even veggie omelet was good. Staff is very cordial and they give you enough time to go through the huge menu

The menu is so big, you'll have a hard time choosing. We had to come back another time just to try a couple more dishes. If you're looking to have breakfast in the area, this is your place.

A friend recommended CiCi's a few months ago and we hesitated going because it was so far from our house. We were so wrong to wait. This place is amazing! It is in a small, non-descript strip mall on Ventura Blvd in Tarzana. If you blink, you might miss it. Weekends and holidays will require a wait for a table.... More

Pancakes are a new level of experience! 💙 the only bad side is the attention but food is completely worth it!

The ambience is pretty basic and it got pretty crowded but it was well worth it. My wife ordered the Cici Benedict and I ordered the Cici Omelet. Both were excellent. And, as noted in the title, the service was excellent. If I lived in the Valley as I did many years ago Cici's would definitely be a prime go-to... More
