Crowded, Noisy and loads of food piled high. If you want a big, fun breakfast this is the place for you.

Starving college grads waiting in line on Saturday and Sunday morning to get enough starch to quench their hangovers.

One of the best omelettes I've ever had. A word of advice if you are traveling in a group, share a meal. The portions are HUGE.

The Griddle is an amazing breakfast place. I love everything about it except for the size. It is so good that there is always a line and it is crowded with hungry folks. Atmosphere: hustling and bustling diner feel. It is noisey and sometime hot if the AC is down. However, its worth raving the heat for this food. SERVICE:... More

WARNING - if you're going to come here for breakfast, make sure there's 3 or 4 of you to share the pancakes as the plate is ridiculously big! MASSIVE portions is an understatement but their omelettes are really good and flavoursome. Hoagie Omelette has some delicious Italian Sausage in it but be careful with the pancakes... They're HUGE!!

Had an amazing breakfast here at the Griddle Cafe. The portions are huge! Pancakes are huge, and the eggs and hash browns were delicious. Definitely worth a try.

When we arrived there were a lot of people standing outside waiting to be seated, we were told the wait was 30mins..we didn't wait that long! Once inside we were given the menu which was a bit overwhelming for me! There was so much to choose... More

How about I start with ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! Geezee I hardly ever hand out 5 stars but this is one place that deserves every bit of those 5 stars! Yes, yes I get it the wait is crazy but I have to join the rest of my fellow Yelper's by stating that it's so worth the 45-60 min wait! The place... More

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.
