This is the most famous place for pancakes in LA. The waitress helped us and told which one was the best sellers. But we (a couple not very greedy and a 6yo) ordered 2 different flavours and we were absolutely terrified with the size of it. I read it was huge, but it's GINORMOUS! Really!! I swear one is enough... More

Done this before about seven years ago, and even though there will be a twenty to thirty minute wait in line outside, we had to bring our friends here! And we did wait for thirty minutes outside as it was a Sunday morning... and we didn't care because we knew what was about to come. And it did, in spades!... More

Just finished breakfast here and wow! The banana pancake and eggs Benedict were delicious and huge! It gets very busy so I recommend arriving right when they open. Parking in the back.

The breakfast menu is extensive and the portions are huge! I had the Kahlua and Baileys pancakes, and they were enough to feed three people! So rich and decadent! My family had more traditional omelets and sides, but they were huge and delicious as well. The prices are very reasonable and we easily found parking nearby.

This place always has a wait when I show up (typical of most LA brunch spots), so come early and most importantly... come hungry! These pancakes are HUGE. I tend to order at least an entree and a side at most brunch places and only got through about a third of the plate here. My friend got the french toast,... More

I have been going to The Griddle for 13 years and consistently have a great experience. I am not an expert on much however I would say I am an authority on breakfast. That said, nobody does it better than The Griddle. Great food with a relaxed atmosphere and the wait staff seem to know when you need something and... More

If you are craving for pancakes, this is the place to go. The pancakes are huge so it can be shared, but you may not want to after you see it. The poached y papas benedict and pumpkin pancake satisfied our hunger.

My family and I stayed out in the LA area to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We went to Universal Studios on Saturday, but we had a commitment late Sunday afternoon, so instead of spending a second day at the park, we went on a food adventure. We have been the Griddle Cafe before, but it has been many years since... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood 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.
