Pancakes and the eggs were excellent but crème de la crème was those delicious Belgian waffles! Russell's has been around since 1930 and I can easily see why, excellent service and good food!
Bit more in price than your fast food joints but if you're indulgent it doesn't matter, especially great when you want to take your family to a day in Hollywood and want to get off to a good start with a big breakfast or a power lunch if you are in business. (I sat at a table next to a retired couple who were speaking with their stock broker). If another convention in Pasadena that peaks my interest comes along, I will definitely visit Russell's again!
