Very big portions, you can share for sure. The cafe works all day long, they offer american cuisine. We ate hamburgers and tacos, couldn`t eat all the fries which came along. We arrived at 2:30p.m. so we didn`t have to wait, but according to internet info, it`s recomended you reserve before arrive there. Cosy place.

We visited the griddle cafe for breakfast after reading the reviews on TA - loved it! Get there early as it gets very busy, we were lucky enough to be seated straight away but by the time we left there was a queue down the street. To clarify from other reviews, there IS parking! We read that there was a... More

We had breakfast here around 8:30 am. When we left there was a long line waiting to get in, so I recommend coming early. Delicious food and big portions. All breakfasts look good! Cafe latte was really good too.

Delicious, but lots of wasted food. The pancakes are ginormous... and you get 3 of them. Most people can't even finish one pancake. Not only are they big, they taste great, too. The velvet pancake is like eating wonderful cake with icing on it. I'll be back again when in Los Angeles and when I am ready to gorge myself... More

Me and my brother went to USA for the first time in September. Whilst staying in LA we looked up all the best places to visit. Kept seeing The Griddle Cafe come up, so thought we would check it out...So glad we did! This place was very busy, a sure sign that you are visiting a great restaurant. Lovely vibe... More

Great price and great service! One hint: Mom's French toast with a side of whipped cream and a side of strawberries... You will never look at French toast the same way again!!!

We were looking for a breakfast joint on TA before the Dodger game this morning and found the Griddle Cafe. It was 3 miles from our hotel so we were off, parking is dicey but worth the trouble. I read the reviews, saw the pictures and have to say it was what I expected to the tee. My wife had... More

We had been told about the good, quality breakfasts here so made a visit on out trip to LA. Yes, nice food and good service but certainly not worth the 20+ minute wait when you can get pretty much the same stuff up the road at Mel's. Still, if you have time on your hands, worth a visit.

Thank PeterThomas1980

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.
