The Griddle Cafe, what can I say but well worth the wait. Waited in line with my Wife and my wife who is not a breakfast person crossing my fingers outside, hoping that it would be worth the wait, small inside. But after the first bite, what line and what wait. I just wish I would have took a picture!... More

We were looking for a good breakfast joint, and stumbled across the Griddle Café. Although they are known for their massive pancakes (they are the size of a small pizza), we opted for omelets and the griddle breakfast. We couldn't have been happier. The food uses all fresh ingredients and serves every dish piping hot. Coffee is served in a... More

If you are after a large meal and a coffee for a good price, this is the place to go, quick and easy. The menu is basic but has some really delicious stuff. Enjoy

Yes to brunching at the Griddle Café! I came with a group of 4 friends on an early Saturday afternoon. Our wait was about 15 minutes as it was super busy (and they REALLY pack people in there), but we were seated before long. The crowd thinned out towards the late afternoon. Looking at their expansive menu, I had nooo... More

If you are an across-the-board foodie- high end to just plain great food, The Griddle is fantastic for breakfast while in LA. Portions are large ... food is great. Went as a party of six, so we saw eggs served multiple ways, pancakes, french toast ... all "over the top" wonderful. And really nice waitstaff!! Enjoy!!

This place has the best breakfast ever, whether their eggs, or pancakes. It's amazingly tasty, but be aware of their humongous portions, so consider sharing :) don't miss the red velvet pancake

This has been my favorite breakfast spot for the last 10 years. The size and pure decadence of their pancakes and french toast makes this a place I only go to when family or friends are in from out of town. I especially love taking Europeans here, the portions blow their minds. Tips: Go on weekdays, less wait. If you... More

We went to the Griddle Cafe on the first morning in Los angeles. We read other reviews, but I didn't think that the breakfast was really big. When we were in the Griddle we would have liked to try everything. The pancakes are very big and very good. They are too much for my italian belly. Before comming in we... More

The Momma's French toast here is beyond good! Get here early because this place gets ridiculously packed and uncomfortable and it is not a big place. Portions are humongous. The pancakes are grotesquely huge. I never understood why they make them so big. This place is for people who like to eat some good food in the morning so don't... More
