Delicious food, great atmosphere (although a little noisy), excellent service! Recommend this to anyone visiting LA, but avoid the weekends. We went on a Monday morning and were seated right away.

Mmmm, very satisfying, comfort food. Servings are good sized. Of course the pancakes were great. Their food is not greasy, undercooked, past freshness, or anything along those lines that you might run into at other places. They have a very pleasant and helpful staff, we felt very welcome. The place is popular and crowded with a somewhat long wait. There's... More

Friendly hosts at this bustling breakfast all day eatery minutes from USC on Fig. Clientale is mix of locals and SC students. Warm atmosphere. Back story of the owners is heart-warming. See that on youtube. Best part is the food. Custom omelettes, fresh smoothies, buckwheat pancakes were superb. One is not enough, neither is two, my son ate 3 -... More

Jack's N Joe is located in the Figueroa Corridor in the USC or University Park neighborhood. Their specialty is the variety of pancakes and omlettes. They serve a good breakfast. In addition to indoor seating there are 8 stools for the counter. Service is very good and the food is basic, if not a bit on the high side. Parking... More

Glad I read the post about the parking...very tight squeeze in front, more parking in the back. The breakfast was excellent. I had 7 Minutes in Heaven, which was French Toast made with Hawaiian bread, Nutella, strawberries & bananas. It was very good. I also had a yummy pineapple mango smoothie. My husband enjoyed the coffee. He said it was... More

There's a long wait here. Came here on a Saturday morning and had to wait about 30 min. We were seated at the bar and was surprised how traditional their menu was. Everything was good. The parking can be a little confusing. I parked in the back because I didnt understand how the parking worked.

The most delicious pancakes ever. I loved the banana walnut and the French toast w/strawberries is awesome. They make a real cup of coffee! The waitresses are eager to please. There is always a wait & parking in back or in the shopping center next door is a must, but it is worth the wait. The line moves quickly. Sit... More

Loud, but happy vibe. We were lucky to snag an easy parking spot at 11am ish. When we left at Noonish the lot was packed with people double parked. They have a full breakfast menu with more than a fair share of pancakes and crepes. The Cali style with lemon butter was amazing! Omellettes ordered by hubby and granddaughter were... More

Visited LA and happened to stumble upon this gem via google search... The first time my boyfriend and I went, we were the last ones they accepted due to their extensive wait list (get there well before 2:00 to make sure you get on the list before they stop taking people!). The wait is BEYOND worth it. So worth it... More
