Uncle Stavros Cafe in Hermosa Beach looks like your typical beach breakfast and lunch spot. There's a pleasant, plant-filled patio with umbrella-topped tables, and the dining room is bright and airy because of floor-to-ceiling windows that let in breezes from the ocean, a block away. But, as fans of "Kojak" may remember, Stavros is a Greek name, and what sets this restaurant apart is a list of Greek specialties.

Campanile, Ca' Brea, Sonora Cafe. There are some heavy hitters on La Brea Avenue in the blocks north of Wilshire Boulevard. But the neighborhood is also loaded with boutiques and antique shops--particularly antique shops. If you need antique door hinges, this is where you want to come. So while the big-name restaurants draw customers from all over town, a lot of locals and shoppers patronize the neighborhood's own restaurants, particularly during the day.

Fourteen world-class resorts hug the rugged coastline of Hawaii's Big Island. Scores of pricey, high-end restaurants cater to the well-heeled guests staying in them.

Catch the aloha spirit with us, as we share secrets about great meal deals on the Big Island. We teamed up with local food experts to bring you 20 Big Island meals for less than about $20, just as we did in our earlier surveys of Oahu, Maui and Kauai.

The contemporary breakfast omelet seems to be exclusively West Coast property. Not a simple fluffy egg item, neatly folded with one, maybe two added ingredients, our omelets are densely packed mounds filled with a laundry list of meats and vegetables, and covered with a lava flow of melted cheese and rich additions such as sour cream and avocado.

For those who didn't know there actually are recipes for hash browns, be assured there's a good one in use at Crazy Otto's Diner, located so close to the Southern Pacific railroad tracks in Lancaster that your seat actually vibrates when the trains roll by. So says new owner Donald Whitbeck, who also believes those copycats over at the Copper Skillet in Palmdale have stolen it.

In deciding to deliver a major address on "faith in America," Mitt Romney had several options. He could endorse John F. Kennedy's insistence in 1960 that "I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute." Or he could embrace the tradition that America is "one nation under God" but not specifically a Christian nation. Or he could minimize the importance of controversial Mormon beliefs by noting that his religion was a matter of family tradition.

Iknow -- I really do -- that fine acting is not mimicry. But because films, especially biopics, shape reality -- often become reality -- I feel compelled to share my Julia Child story before Oscar night, when we will all once again watch clips of Meryl Streep's effusive portrayal of her in "Julie & Julia." It so happens that I interviewed the real Julia in her prime and saw a side of her that the moviegoing public would barely recognize. It was 1973, during a nationwide meat boycott that was triggered not -- as it might be today -- by indignation about crowded feedlots or inhumane cattle slaughtering but by matters of the pocketbook.

Before taking a seat at P.J.'s Abbey in Orange, new visitors are encouraged to stroll around, look at what remains of the original flooring, admire the sky-high ceilings and enjoy the sunlight streaming through the magnificent stained-glass windows. Such perks should be added to the menu at P.J.'s Abbey, a restaurant inside what once was a Baptist Church. Several churches have owned the 110-year-old Gothic-style building, and have left behind some interesting objects.

Don't let the "Smoking" sign on the door scare you off. Or the banner in the window urging Camarillo residents to come in and sign a referendum petition urging repeal of the city's "no smoking" ordinance. Dorothy's Chuck Wagon Cafe is a small place, but it isn't--as one might expect from the signs--a dingy room full of smoke. Dorothy's is a popular local spot to get a large, satisfying breakfast at a good price.
