These were the best pancakes I ever had in my entire life. They are huge and delicious. They were cheap as well. I would suggest sharing an order of pancakes because you won't finish it unless your stomach has no end

Good food here with some interesting selections on the menu. But you have to be here early otherwise not worth a 20 minute wait. Breakfast never is.

Been here 3x and it's always packed, with a line outside. You can ask for perks on Twitter to help with access. Food is delicious and plenty of it. Prices, for the amount you get, are well worth it. Have had omelettes and pancakes - the size of tires. My favorite is still the Teachers Pet. Yum!!! A must while... More

I've been going to The Griddle for years. Always good, always busy. My favorite meal is the Cobb omelette. My suggestion is to go early, unless you want to be seen or talk to people in line. If I can't get there early, I don't go.

The guy who seats you have a photogenic memory, He writes nothing down but remembers your name and party size, I wish my brain functioned that way. The pancakes and waffles are excellent. The pancakes are huge. My only issue is most buy a stack of three and can only eat just one pancake. Anyway, the food is great and... More

We flew into LAX on a Saturday morning from Sydney and our friends from LA took us straight the the Griddle Cafe for breakfast. They boasted that the Griddle was the best place in LA for breakfast and after our visit - we can understand how. Being from Australia, we were not expecting such large portion sizes but as we...

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.
