Ok breakfast

I was really looking forward to visiting the Griddle Cafe and only had to wait ten minutes to get in. It was really busy and it's entertaining seeing the huge plates of food in this cafe. I had the buttermilk pancakes and my sister had eggs and bacon. The pancakes were huge as everyone says. I... read more

I asked Siri for the best breakfast in LA and she said The Griddle. Off we went. We were fortunate to walk right in and get a table. It's loud. I might have preferred eating outside. Plates started flying by us with huge piles of food on them. Duh! We should have known. But we ordered omelettes. I traded in... More

It was quite noisy inside but the music was still well chosen and food was fantastic. We orderer nachos and then some pancakes - red... More

huge portions, and best to go on a weekday so you don't have to wait in line. The pancakes take up the whole plate, so good!

French toast and pancakes are awesome. Waiter was great. French press was jusk okay in my opinion. Definitely worth a visit. It gets crowded fast. Two people can share nearly every plate, maybe more.

The long lines give away this small and always crowded pancake place on Sunset Blvd. It can be quite a wait, but the rewards of humongous, devilishly delicious pancakes layered with your choice of fillings and toppings are well worth it.

We arrived about 9:30 thinking the breakfast Rush was over.... not!!' There was a line that was not too bad, we might've waited 10 minutes if that.

Extra large portions and quick efficient service. Our server Jason was witty and quick. Pricing seemed a little high but once again lots of food and food quality.

Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
