This La Crescenta cafe takes its name from an ancient Phoenician port city, now part of Lebanon. Owner Avo Jingozian hails from Aleppo, Syria, and features the cuisine of his youth in this café with faux marble tables and copper-framed oven. Foul mudammas is a popular breakfast in Lebanon and Syria. Starting daily at 9 a.m., you can order a version here that consists of fava beans stewed with lemon, garlic and olive oil, dressed with tomato, parsley and Aleppo pepper, and served with onion, mint, green olives, plus puffy house-baked pita bread. Byblos also has a sizeable menu and bakes triangle shaped bureg, flatbreads filled with ingredients like green olives, spinach and cheese, and ground beef.2948 Foothill Blvd, La Crescenta, CA 91214.
