First off, I have driven by this place numerous times, and always wondered was the line out front worth it. Well it definitely was! The menu has so many options to choose from. I had French Toast, potatoes and turkey sausage. The portion size was enough for me to have the next morning. My Mom ordered Buttermilk pancakes and let... More

I've had waits nearly every time I've been to The Griddle, but each time I've been rewarded with giant, delicious pancakes. The Banananana (banana pancakes) are a personal favorite. Great for sharing or for leftovers!

This place is incredible. If you're looking for a place to satisfy your sweet tooth or for an epic cheat day meal, look no further. The Griddle is confident, and mouthwatering. The pancakes and french toast are biggest I have ever seen, and will be the envy of any "kitchen sink" sweet tooth item you could possibly imagine. The coffee... More

If you can find a time when there's not a huge line. But oh so worth it for wonderful pancakes and great breakfasts! A one of a kind! Bustling noisy crowded. Counter there if you're on your own. An LA original!

They say when visiting a new city, look for where the locals line up and you'll find the best food. This could not be more true at Griddle Cafe. There is always a line and a wait, but it's totally worth it! The most gigantic fluffy yummy pancakes, with every variety you can imagine. Not into the heavy, albeit delicious... More

The Griddle is the PERFECT place if you love huge Breakfast meal and giant burgers. Been there few times and I've never been able to eat the whole meal....too much : ) It's open for breakfast and lunch and closed at dinner. The only down thing about the Griddle is....that there is ALWAYS a loooooooong waiting list; you see people... More

Great breakfast spot known for huge pancakes. Be aware that you don't have to order a full stack -- a normal human would probably be ok with a single pancake.

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.
