Don't go on a weekend, line ups out the door. This place serves large portioned typical dinner food. Not worthy of the hype.

Go on a weekday morning when there is no line. We went on a Monday morning and walked right in. The restaurant was full but we still managed to score a booth (and the hottest waiter working in the cafe that day) A great diner, great service, good food, very clever menu. I had obvious choice of the red velvet... More

Everything is great, try the French toast. Service could be faster. Go earlier to avoid the long wait. I've not personally tried the waffles but others in my group say they are heavenly.

we visited the Griddle located within the SLS hotel, and my only conclusion is that the food is worth the wait. A wait becuase the SLS is badly outfitted with only two suitable breakfast places, of which The Griddle is one, So once a convention was in town the line outside the door was ridiculous - we must have waited...

If you are in LA you MUST go to the Griddle Café for the best breakfast. The pancakes here are outrageous. One person cannot possibly eat the three pancakes - they are so oversized! I read the reviews and was ready - we only ordered one order for the three of us and it was still too much! We all... More

If you are in LA, do not miss breakfast/brunch at the griddle cafe. Triple stacks of the hugest pancakes of every type are just the beginning of what this tightly packed eatery has to offer. The omelettes and the French Toast are equally sizable and tasty. The Coffee is French Press and is worth the three minute wait and $5... More

I have never had pancakes as amazing as these. Everytime, I am in LA, it is a must stop. One order of pancakes will feed a family of 4, NO JOKE!. And they are amazing. Something for everyone. The oreo pancakes are to die for, but very, very sweet. The oreo lovers dream.

Expect a 1-1.5 hours wait if you arrive after 10am but the wait is worth it. The pancakes are delicious and the portions are huge. Other breakfast items are well-done and the french pressed coffee is a must order. Overall, great food, good service. I will definitely be back!

Luckly we got to try The Griddle Cafe! It was the best breakfast experience of our stay in Los Angeles, were one portion is more then enough (for two people), but you definitely wanna share more from the menu and doggybag the leftovers. There is usually (and understandably enough) a line to get a table, so make sure to get... More
