Long line but moved quickly. The pancakes are huge. Oreo cookie pancakes were the best. The french toast was delicious too. Definitely worth going!

The food was amazing. If you are visiting, you have to put your name on a list, they are typically packed!! It is worth the wait. The pancakes are enough for 4 people so don't order too much. Great gem in Hollywood

They have some huge pancakes and a good selection of food items to choose from, most them being quite good. This place often has a line and I understand why.

Babe and I ordered the pancakes made with pureed bananas and brown sugar mixed into the batter. MY MY MY it was tasty! We barely ate half of it! Five people will have a hard time eating the whole thing, lol. However, the egg scramble (I forgot the name of the dish) was not too bad, not worth writing home... More

Not a fan of huge portions of low quality, bland food. So much waste. I get lots of people just want a massive pile of crap no matter how cheap the ingredients are - just really not for me.

I F-ing LOVE this place. I always get the peanut bubba crunch french toast. Its orgasmic to say the least. It's like heaven in my mouth. There is always a line to get into this place, but it's SO worth the wait!!!!!!! Service is always excelent here as well. =)

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.
