You must be very, very patient (and hopefully not starving) because the wait is long!! But once inside, the food is worth the wait. Get the pancakes...any kind...and share :) Fun atmosphere, and maybe it was just me but every server looked like a model/actor! You will enjoy it.

Probably the best breakfast in LA, though I haven't had very many. It is more of a dining experience than just a meal. The line moved quickly, the food was great and the staff was surprisingly pleasant for being so busy and in the commotion. We enjoyed our visit!

Great experience, great staff. We had read about the enormous portions bu didn't really learn. Every family member made their choice. I struggled to eat a third of my delicious pancake (Eyes wide shut) and one of our 13 year old sons stopped after only eaten a 10th of his portion. He went in seconds from being in heaven enjoying...

Our Hollywood tour guy recommended this breakfast café during our tour, and boy were we very glad he did. Upon arrival, you sign up your name on the wait list and wait outside. Our wait time was between 30-45min, and we were seating around 30min. The sun was blazing during our wait, but there was enough shade from the trees... More

Enjoy the service food was good and large portion. Must arrive early or there's a wait and don't set in the center section, to much moving while trying to eat.

You gotta try the pancakes! What I ordered was delicious. The service was great. Although there was a bit of wait time it was worth the wait.

When I used to work at Hollywood Division, we would either go eat at this place or order pick up. I have seen long lines during the weekend. Definitely not worth the wait. It is loud and service is iffy. The pancakes are good. I could usually eat about a 10th of one and have a meal for the next... More

The food contains big portions. One from each is more than enough. The pancakes and french toast are very huge we were 7 persons and we order 1 from each and it was really big that we couldn't finished it. The french toast with the so good , must try! From the photo you can see how huge they are.

Food & service is excellent! We always look forward to driving from Pasadena to sunset just to indulge in their huge pancakes filled with everything you love. A lot of choices and it is totally worth lining up for.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
