Here at LAist, we consider our restaurant reviews to be recommendations, not critiques. We only slam a place when our hand is forced. There are just some people who should not go into any industry where dealing with the public is a chief priority.

It truly pains us to do this. We so wanted to love Krust. We so wanted to write a glowing review and turn you on to this hidden bakery-cafe in Burbank. It fills a real culinary void in the neighborhood. The menu is not exactly complex or cutting-edge. Anyone who can plug in a hairdryer without electrocuting themselves can operate a panini press, and the paninis seem to be the center of their lunch menu. We can't speak for breakfast items, since we haven't had the constitution to get up and be insulted first thing in the morning. Still, the food is simple, clean, tasty, and well-presented - exactly what you want for a nice, relaxing girls' lunch. But time and time again, no matter how many times we visit, we have yet to enjoy that pleasant lunch
