Bea Bea's, an understated breakfast and lunch spot in a Burbank shopping center that's close to the Warner Bros ranch, is known for its outrageous pancake, waffle, and French toast concoctions. The Green Tea Monster is among the top pancake orders - a stack of three plate-size matcha green tea pancakes are filled with white chocolate chips, and topped with green tea mascarpone, powdered sugar, and a large mound of house made whipped cream. Don’t forget the maple syrup served on the side. Bea Bea's also serves up a mighty fine green tea latte.
