Formerly Jimmy Beans, Lama Beans Cafe marries the blue-collar soul of Gilman Street to a foods-of-the-world culinary sensibility thats pure Berkeley. Show up at breakfast for silver-dollar pancakes and omelets garnished with cumin-laced green chutney, or at lunch for the delectable lamb sandwiches and jerk-chicken lavash. Dinner is mellower, without the crush of hipsters and mechanics that makes this place feel essential to the neighborhood.
