We usually see someone famous when we eat here. This last time we didn't, though. The portions are huge and the food is delish! The wait time is also huge. Just glad they're opening one in Vegas!!

A great little hole in the wall restaurant for breakfast. We ordered the banana pancakes, bacon and eggs benedict and the pancakes are literally bigger than my face. Very tasty and service is quick and efficient.The restaurant is small and there's normally a line out but it's worth to try at least once.

Food piled on and overlapping off the plate does not equate to good food as so many people I have encountered seem to think. Also you are crowded into little tables and chairs entirely too close for my comfort. This place is overrated and attracts so many people because they think they'll see a celebrity--NOT!!!

The food was great! I had the apple cobbler French toast! Portions are super huge so come on an empty stomach! You definitely get your money's worth!

These pancakes are delicious and HUGE!! 3-4 people could easily make a meal from one order. Compared to the other food we ate in LA, it was also very reasonably priced. I would say it was our most memorable dining experience while in LA.

So good! Didn't have to wait to be seated and we had a party of 8. Large portions, huge pancakes, great coffee. The Golden Ticket Pancakes were to die for! No syrup needed! Yum!

We ate breakfast here on a Sunday morning. We parked on the street right outside and got in just before the rush around 8. The pancakes were huge and amazing!!! I really wish we hadn't been staying in a hotel, and then I could have taken them home to finish!

Try their omelette, red velvet pancake, golden ticket pancake and sides like sausages bacon eggs. The taste are ok but their pancake are delicious. Expect waiting time between 15min to 1 hour before you get a table. All depend how many people. Always crowded all the time. Zagat rated cafe. On of LA icon. Will be one of the restaurant... More
