If you find yourself hungrily wandering around the east Valley or in need of a caffeine pick-me-up, consider dropping into SteamPunk Coffee Bar and Kitchen in Valley Village. It’s a hipster-looking joint with funky furniture and art-covered walls off the beaten path on Burbank Boulevard, just west of Whitsett. Think Los Feliz and Silverlake vibe in the 818.
Open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily, it’s a fast, casual place serving up fun breakfast dishes, with a variation of eggs, waffles and Mexican eats, as well as salads, wraps and sandwiches. They stock limited Röckenwagner baked good usually only available on the Westside.
The unique specialty coffee and tea menu includes matcha green tea, sweet tea, Mexican mocha, dirty Chai (with a shot of espresso), Mexican Coke and sugar-infused espresso shots.
Tip: It’s often crowded on weekends, but owners Amy and Mario make sure the service is friendly and accommodating, plus they hustle as fast as they can for a small place —so be patient.
