Açaí jungle is an oasis in Burbank where you can not only always get a healthy meal or drink pick me up but the atmosphere is always peaceful and inviting. The restaurant itself is small and cute with four inside tables and several outside tables on the sidewalk.

An extensive and delicious menu. Great place for breakfast. The place is always crowded, but the service is excellent: the waiters and the kitchen are quick. Weekend mornings are very busy.

Try to go early during the day on a weekday, as the animals are more active in the morning, parking is easier, and there are less people. Take the kids to feed the giraffes between 11 a.m and 1 p.m or 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., get up close with hippos at noon. If you’re tired, take the children to the playground at the far end of the zoo. If you bring your food, picnic next to the chimpanzee exhibit. On the way out, make sure to pass by to have the kids pet and brush Nigerian dwarf goats at the Winnick Family Children’s Zoo.

One of the Best Bakeries in all USA. Great sandwiches, good coffee, amazing pastries and more! Get a slice of delicious cake or order an entire one for a celebration, there's many options and all are recommended. The building in Burbank is large and the other locations are fairly big too. The lines in the morning can wrap around the block but if you come in the evening, it's far more manageable. Either way it's worth the wait. Lots of good choices

The wine is fantastic and the food is incredible. A great gem hidden in plain sight in downtown Burbank. The outside patio is the perfect place to spend a weekend afternoon outdoors with a picnic and a bottle of their very own delicious wines. Live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights. Occasional Jazz and Blues, the decor and ambiance is so romantic and has a relaxing feel to it.
