A breakfast spot in Ladera Heights, Court Cafe is a definite cut above the usual greasy spoon diner. The portions are all big enough for two, especially the multiple-pound Ocho Burrito with fried shrimp, lobster, chorizo, potatoes, and eggs - it’s as good, massive, and out-there as it sounds. We also like the shrimp and grits and the taco omelette, with spiced ground chicken, guacamole, and cheese sauce. We suspect they use a dozen eggs in this thing, so make sure you’re ready for leftovers.
