Update 12/28/16: CVG Facebook Page follower Sara T. informed us that she ate at the newly opened Westlake Village Cici's today at its soft opening. She confirmed the long awaited restaurant was open to the general public.
Update 11/16/16: I'm told "real soon" for the grand opening. Possibly within the week but a specific date was not known. 818.881.6704
Update 10/6/16: Lots of construction progress and it looks like Cici's Cafe may open within the next month or two, according to someone working at the site. But we shall see. The sign is up... "Cici's Salt & Pepper...Sugar & Cream."
Posted 12/31/15: There's a sign on the door of the former The Counter eatery at 30990 Russell Ranch Road in Westlake Village (sandwiched between Barone's Pizzeria and Aroha New Zealand Cuisine) stating that Cici's is now hiring all positions.
What is Cici's? Well, the phone number given is the Cici's Cafe located on Ventura Boulevard in Tarzana. The Cici's Facebook page indicates the eatery opened in 2006 and serves breakfast and lunch with "scrumptious" (I love that word) pancakes, french toast, omelettes, salads and wraps.
There are over 1,800 reviews of Cici's on Yelp, with an average rating a solid 4 1/2. Sounds promising! No other information currently available on timing, but stay tuned...
