Well despite the 30 to 40 minutes of wait on Sunday afternoon the meal was fantastic. Probably if it was not Sunday the wait could have been less! Anyways what does matter is that this might be one of the best breakfasts in town... Definitely try it...

Our son attended college in LA and on our first visit, several years ago, we discovered the Griddle Cafe through researching reviews. We went and from then on, every time we were in LA ate there at least once - more if we could possibly arrange it. This restaurant has got the most unique pancake concoctions - all huge and... More

I went at Noon on a Tuesday. People were waiting for a table. I sat at the counter. I ordered the basic pancakes for $8.95. I got three pancakes, in a stack, that were 10 or 12 inches in diameter, fully covering two plates that were stacked on top of each other. The pancakes are thick. Only a hungry teenager... More

This place is AWESOME. The food is sooo good, but HUGE! Great to share and/or take home leftovers. The pressed coffee is delish to go with the red velvet pancakes. My son had the oreo pancake - so yummy but no way any one person can finish. Be prepared for the long wait and the lines, but well worth it.... More

Order this..!! Banana pancakes & Medium French pressed coffee. Ask for only 1 pancake otherwise you'll get a stack of 3. Very yummy.

This place is fun with the best pancakes ever. If you're hungry and want the biggest and best pancakes and omelets, go there. The lines usually move fast to get a seat, but you may roll out of there!

A tourist attraction that is fun to take out of town-ers. Definitely make it an occasion because this place offers stuffed pancakes bigger than the plates they are served on. Bring your appetite and get ready to share AND have left overs for lunch AND dinner. The dining area is pretty tight. I recommend leaving your extra belongings in the... More

Hands down one of the best breakfast in Southern California!!! Banana Nana Pancakes are a must (huge portions one cake is enough for two!) French Toast is out of this world:) Get there early especially during the weekdays otherwise prepare to wait for about 30-45 for a table.

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.
