I really was fussing because I ordered a few items. I think the server should inform you their pancakes are more than huge and one is probably too much. It was a total of 8 of us and we had so much food left over that when 4 more people showed up they were able to eat some of our... More

Saw this on trip advisor so i was really eager to try this it was just as good as everyone said. The pancakes were massive and so was the breakfast's. Before the doors had even opened there was a long queue.. It just goes to show how good this place is.

Read the reviews before we came, so knew what to expect. We waited about 15 mins for a table on a Saturday at around 9am. I had the golden ticket pancakes, I asked for one pancake only as they are huge, I have a decent appetite and couldn't finish it. The normal portion is 3!!! My husband had a breakfast... More

Maybe for other times of the day too but we did not have time to check (had to move on) Anyway, very important advice: get there early (8.30) or you may have to stand in line to get in. The place is fantastic in all respects.

So reading that this griddle,cafe is Número uno, we decided to check it out. Well, that was a mistake! Ok, the portions are big, but lack quality, the servers are just there.. not engage, not interested . Long lines and long wait time added to me giving a less then staller review. I suppose if you are hungry and love... More

We had a really good experience at the griddle cafe! We were greeted immediately when we walked in and offered a seat right away. It was busy, but we were able to find a spot. Our server was very laid-back and friendly. I should warn you, the portions for the pancakes are HUGE! Other than that, you can order other... More

I'm a avid French toast fan. I always order this for breakfast if available. Drives my husband nuts ! Well, this time he ended up finishing my huge portion and loved it. Only problem is I won't be able to order this anyplace else since it just won't seem up to par with this place. Hope we are able to... More

This entire breakfast experience has changed my thoughts about breakfast even more. I'm an avid pancake eater and I will say this one by far is the best I've ever put in my mouth! I need to find out where I can purchase the mix to have a similar experience at home until I am back in LA! WOW! Forget... More

“Bigger is better” best describes the Griddle Café! They served humongous portions of food, not just in size but in flavors too. We tried their pancakes, French toast and scrambles. This resto was packed with customers when we were there, we had to wait in line for a while to be seated.

I am not a big breakfast eater in general - but I heard about this place from a friend who is local and MAN AM I GLAD I WENT HERE! Talk about an amazing meal, 2 for 1 mimosas and the scramble I had was a huge portion. The pancakes going by me were bigger than the plates and looked... More
