Burbank might be the most unsung studio city in America but that doesn't mean that nearby employees and denizens have to settle for lame dining options. Whereas Olive & Thyme moved to larger digs a few blocks down on Riverside, pie and sandwich purveyor simplethings, which already has two locations in Westwood and West Third, has taken over O&T's former digs. Serving a nearly similar array of sweet and savory pies, plus delectable sandwiches, simplethings presents it all in a cutely appointed dining room.

Opened two weeks ago, this location also serves a weekend brunch from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., offering avocado toast (of course), quinoa & eggs, and breakfast sandwiches. The menu here also states that a Santa Monica location is in the works, which is fine comfort for Westsiders addicted to those sweet pies.

4013 Riverside Drive
