We went early, so got a table straight away. Very friendly waiter took us through the menu and got us some water while we were making our minds up. He recommended a short stack of pancakes and I'm glad he did as they were massive! Lovely breakfast which set us up for the day

At the peak hours you can expect a very long wait. I wouldn't recommend coming with a big group or with little kids. The tables are packed very close together. There isn't much room to move around. Aside from that, I love that there's so much pancake flavors to choose from. I don't need them to be as big as... More

This place was amazing! The portions were large and delicious. It is a small place, so the seating was a bit tight but overall the food and service was great!

Being a LA local, I try to come here whenever I can. I also usually make it a point to try and bring out-of-towners here at least once while they are visiting. Try the french toast!!! They are known for their pancakes, but believe me the french toast is amazing! Just get the regular one, i think they call it... More

This café specializes in flapjacks or pancakes with various fillings. They arrive at the table multi layered and absolutely HUGE! ,even by American standards. I defy anyone to eat a whole one. in fact the mornings we were there, no one did and boxes were provided to take away the leftovers. One order is more than enough for two people

Only walk up, no reservations. Huge...huge...gigantic portions. Prices are very moderate and more than reasonable. Quality is top notch. Always busy and full of energy but not too long of a wait. You will have to wait though and it's worth it. Right next to the Directors Guild and a cozy spot. Top 10 restaurants on a budget for over... More

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.
