Huuuge portions!

This place ticks all my boxes - delicious food, huge portions, reasonable prices and friendly service. I ordered the Bananana pancakes, and could only eat 1/3 of my serving and still felt stuffed! I would definitely recommend splitting a portion between two, or even three, people. Even my... read more

If you like breakfast big, then you will love griddle cafe. The food is very tasty, and the energy of the packed atmosphere is great! I enjoyed the griddlecakes the most! Sitting by the kitchen window is a great tight spot of you are solo.

Food is good enough, and eclectic combinations makes it appealing. However, I believe the portions bring you back time after time. Very rich also, so think about sharing! Really! Beware, on weekends, the lines are very long. All in all, you won't be disappointed.

Oh my! I needed to not eat for a week before going here! The portions are generous to say the least. We shared pancakes and still took at least half home but they were DELICIOUS! The Poached y Papas Benedict with avocado are to die for! I wish I could get them at home. The coffee was also good, really,... More

A cool little cafe and the best pancakes in town. It's small and usually you have to wait outside for a table but the food is outstanding and the service is attentive and fast. A must for every visit to LA and for all Pancake lovers

While visiting LA for business, I had breakfast at The Griddle. Great place for ENORMOUS pancakes, and quick service. There was a line out the door and for good reason. Will definitely be back!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
