A Great Greasy Spoon: Nat's Early Bite Coffee Shop in Van Nuys

Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

There's nothing fancy about Nat's Early Bite at first look. It's another hole in a the wall, tucked in a small strip mall off Hazeltine on Burbank Ave. Look closer, especially on a weekend, and you'll see a line out the door. And that's the first good sign.

Inside, it's busy and loud with families and friends. The decoration is a mix of old signed celebrity headshots, local baseball team photos and kid drawings. On the menu, it's your standard breakfast fare--eggs, omelettes, hot cakes, meats, waffles, juice, biscuits and gravy, etc--along with a few unexpecteds and rarer rinds like soyrizo and grits. A simple place, for sure, but a great one to get your morning grub on.

They don't have a website, so here's the info: 14115 Burbank Blvd., Van Nuys | 818.781.3040 | Mon: 6am-3pm; Tue-Fri:6am-8pm; Sat: 6:30am-4pm; Sun: 7:30am-4pm
