I love breakfast food!
It is great to eat any time of day in my opinion. One of my favorite spots to get breakfast is at The Griddle Cafe on Sunset in Hollywood,California.
It can be a little pricey, but I never leave there hungry. In fact I always have to ask for a box to take home leftovers. Their pancakes are huge! They are the size of your plate and bigger than your face. They actually come in stacks of 3. I ask for only one because there is no way I can eat 3. I can barely eat one.
I love their Yellow Brick Road pancake. I always get eggs and bacon with it as well. The bacon is even big. They also have some really good french toast.

The atmosphere is nice. If you don’t get a booth you may end up a little close to other patrons as the tables are small. They do have a back room for private parties as well.
If you are visiting LA and want to see some celebrities you have a good shot at The Griddle Cafe. I have seen some celebrities attempting to finish their food.
Some things to note:
They close at 4pm.
There have been times where I have walked right in and got a table immediately and other times where me and my friends waited over an hour for a table.
They do have some outdoor seating, but the line of people standing outside waiting to eat will stare you down to hurry up.
If you follow The Griddle Cafe on twitter (@thegriddlecafe) they tweet passwords and off menu items. Saying the password to your waiter can get you some great stuff. I once saw a password that got you free mimosas!
I also hear The Griddle Cafe is opening up another location at the SLS Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas! If you think you have what it takes to compete with these great cafes then you may want to consider the financial implications of opening up your own cafe. A good starting point could be to check out an energy comparison site for further information on how to find the ideal energy plan to keep bills to a minimum.
This is certainly a place you must go if you haven’t been yet. You won’t be disappointed!
