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

Sadly, I don't live close to this restaurant; however if I did I'd be three times my size. The pancakes here are the bomb. They have unique flavors and combinations, and they fill your very large plate with warm, fluffy goodness. The only thing I don't like is the wait to get in, and once inside the seating is pretty...

I have been to Cici's Cafe many times. Their menu is so so long that you could take hours to read through the entire thing. They have AMAZING INCREDIBLE Breakfast food. They do have great lunch food too, but I go for the breakfast food. The many many many combos of what they create with Pancakes, French Toast, Waffles, Crepes... More

From the Line outside and watching what the outdoor diners were eating everything looks amazing...... But looking was as as far as we got. Asked the greeter If they did gluten free and he almost laughed and said no, no gluten free here. Very disappointed to say the least.....

I always give a restaurant at least a second try. This was my second try. Food was cold and staff was indifferent I will not be back for a third time.
