Breakfast is best at Nat’s Early Bite Coffee Shop in Woodland Hills

For as long as I can remember, Nat’s Early Bite Coffee Shop on Burbank Boulevard in Sherman Oaks has been — like the nearby Art’s Deli — a weekend destination for old-school cooking, a great place to go for that morning cuppa joe, a classic omelette or scramble, maybe some hot cakes to celebrate losing a pound or two (and gaining it back in the process) — and this being Southern California, a down-home assortment of Mexican dishes. Nothing fancy. Nothing too modern. Just the sort of chow that sa...

He lost his wife, but not their baby; now he’s a Dad in progress

People ask James Alvarez all the time how he manages to carry on. The question could be sympathetic or prying or annoying. But to Alvarez, it’s understandable.
