Come hungry! This delicious breakfast spot is the Chocolate Factory to Willy Wonka breakfast lovers - especially for those who love pancakes (hint hint)!
Best Breakfeast in LA!!! – This place is a breakfast staple in LA. Long wait, but it is worth it if you have the patience.
The pancakes are unbelievable and have tons a options and the portions are crazy. Everything on the menu is awesome and tasty and would recommend this spot to basically anyone.
My favorite – This is hands down my favorite place to go for breakfast in LA. There are so many fun choices that sometimes it can be hard to make a decision. The new item are the Red Velvet Pancakes, which are only there on select days, but if you follow them on twitter/facebook you will know when to go. Usually only served between 12-2. Its one pancake with cream cheese frosting. But, hands down my favorite item, which is a MUST HAVE is the peanut butter crusted french toast. If you like PB you will LOVE this. The batter has PB in it, then they dip it in crushed up nutter butters, PB whipped cream (mild PB flavor) with more cruched up nutter butter on top. You may have to wait 45m for a table, but its worth it....a way around the wait, become facebook friends and tell the owner a few days ahead of time when you will be there and she will put you on the list to be seated :)
Best French Toast in town! – French Toast lovers... this is the place for you!
They have an array of French Toast options from the decadent to the just plain wacky.
The also serve French press coffee right at your table, which is a nice touch. Host is usually very friendly, service tends to be pretty decent as well considering how fast paced the environment can be.
not sure what all the hype is about. – Im not sure what all the hype is about the restairant. I do see people lined up on the weekends. Ive gone twice. The dishes are definitely filled with good portions of food. Pancakes were okay. But the Huevos Rancheros were not my cup of tea. Not a totally bad place but didnt leave me wanting to go back either. Oh, and its packed with people on the weekends.
Delicious pancakes the size of the plate – I've been twice. First time sat at a table. Second time at the bar. Glad I went both times. Second time my girlfriend and I spent more time visiting with people around us which added to the fun and interest of the place. Unfortunately I realized afterwards that I had been overcharged and I wasn't happy about that. Could have been a mistake on their part, could have been deliberate. The guy who sat us was cool, but the guy serving us was rather unemotional. I'll be more careful next time and I suggest you be careful too unless you don't care about that sort of thing. Maybe he had already added in his tip? It was a party of 2. Still I recommend it for what it is and that's a great place in Hollywood to have a big meal that could be two meals if you take home your leftovers. I met a couple of guys from another country, I guy I'd seen on tv and movies, and this one girl I wish I had spoken to because I still can't remember what show I remember her from. Oh well, I'm going back next time I'm in town. Maybe she'll be there again.
best pancakes in la – love this place!!! the menu is awesome and the portions are extemely generous!! there is also a young hip vibe to the place that makes the atmosphere fun!
ones and zeros BEWARE!! – For 3 years I've heard the hype built around this place and after years of turning around b/c of frustrating lines I couldn't be bothered with, I finally caught it during a lull and sat down with my girlfriend.... needless to say I was very excited.... I love breakfast!!!
First off the "too hot for his own good" manager rudely pointed to our seats while not even making eye contact and then topped by basically throwing two menus at me.
Our waitress whom was very pushy yet not prompt seemed like she was in outer space and distracted by the other staff members. It seemed like actors and actress auditioning to play rolls as waiters and waitress on a WB pilot. Very tiresome:( Then the kitchen staff was very obnoxious considering there proximity to the dinning area. this is all restaurant management 101.... THEN there was the food, absolutely the most absurd portions of food rivaling the Saddle Ranch. It would've be one thing if it was tempting but I wouldn't go that far. I ordered Huevos Ranchros and considering the kitchen looked and sounded like they were of latin decent I figured it was a good choice. NOPE! plate presentation was gross!!!!! Never being a picky eater I almost couldn't eat it on sight alone. It was basically bean, raw egg, tortilla, and literally a block of cheese, smothered in some kind of broth to simulate enchelada sauce which was basically 1 part water 1 ketchup. SOUP in other words... Meanwhile my GF is contending with her 80 egg omelet which she could even put a dent into. There is more then the bill.... very expensive, some how between both of us I managed to drop about 50 dollars including the 10 percent tip. BWT the Cactus Cooler they call fresh OJ was 5 dollars pop plus tax...
NEVER AGAIN, If its busy it reminds me of a middle school cafeteria so do not waste the time standing line go to AROMA down the street for breakfast, its the same price but the service is a bit better and the food is great.
Breaking The Law – It is illegal in the city of Los Angeles to serve water at an eating establishment without the patron asking for it. I went last weekend and our waiter automatically brought 4 glasses of water to our table, which all went untouched. This along with huge portions make this a very wasteful restaurant. I ordered the Mom's French Toast and it was raw in the middle. I like the vibe and the host, but it's not enough to make me come back for more.
You get too much for your money! – This place is very cute, i ate outside with my husband and service was fast and friendly. Mimosas are delicious. I ordered the banana pancake which i only finished 1/3 of. it was way too much for one person, but delicous. some celebrity walked out casually but didn't catch her face. I'd go back and chill outside again, it was very pleasant.
Can you spell mediocre... – My GF and I had breakfast here over the weekend. Man, the line was wrapped around the corner of the building. The place is super tiny inside and they have seating outside.... but you are literally dining on the sidewalk. We ended up sitting outside... and man was it hot! Then all these hungry people are starring at you grub. Awkward! The portions are huge! My GF had "the Cabalerro" & I had the "Gone Shrimping." Both were egg specialty dishes. My GF liked her dish. But mine was so so. I wouldn't have it again. Service is rushed, I must agree, because they are THAT busy. But if you have an appetite.. this place will not let you down.
