Breakfast in Sunland?

It doesn't have to be fancy, but tasty is preferable...
o.k.. here's the gig...I keep my horse stabled in Shadow Hills. There's a place that the locals frequent called the Rise and Shine at the corner of Wheatland and Sunland Blvds. Not a greasy spoon, but very low profile except to the locals who've been going there forever. If you didn't know better, you'd probably pass on going in. It's hardly noticeable from the outside, not to mention located next to a liquor mart. I like it, good service, clean, and fine for breakfast,... but... if you don't ride a horse, reek of horse, or have even a remote dislike for horses, you may really really feel outta your element. So yes, Sunland has breakfast places. If you go, I've at least prepared you...
My preferred breakfast spot is Jeremy's, actually in La Crescenta, but fwy. close...pop onto the 210, head west, exit at Pennsylvania, head south to the bottom of the hill... as it curves s/e it's at the corner of Ramsdell and Honolulu. Great breakfast, omelets, pancakes, etc., including a great salsa with the huevos rancheros. Very friendly, locals and families, counter service too...and a horse isn't a prereq.
I've tried a few places along Foothill in Sunland/Tujunga, on the stretch between Mt. Gleason and Sherman Grove but none were worth going back (either bleh food or lousy service).
P.S. The place just east of Rise and Shine has changed names at least three times in the last few years... avoid it...it's ???? Bistro now...it was awful when I went there during the last two name changes, no telling what it's like now and whether it's under new ownership or just flipping names again.
NEW (and BEST) BREAKFAST IN SUNLAND/TUJUNGA!!!
the angeles national golf club has amazing breakfasts at an amazing price (not to mention the amazing view of the golf course).
we've been going steadily since they opened the new restaurant a couple of months ago. $7.95 gets you 2 eggs, 2 bacon, 2 wonderful sausage links (not the greasy jimmy dean type) hash browns AND 2 pancakes AND! coffee AND!!! juice!!! they room could use a little more decor but i think they don't wanna take away from the beauty of the golf course. there IS a dress-code but it is NOT enforced. we always go in blue jeans and t-shirts. and the golfers are always wearing shorts, etc...they're only open from 6:30 to 11am, though. i'm on a campaign to get them to serve Bfast longer. they also have a sunday brunch that we haven't tried, yet. i got the menu this morning: fruit compote, mimosa or bloody mary, and a choice of entre (bagel w/lox and capers, eggs benedict w/potatoes or the belgian waffle w/strawberries) for just $10. sounds nice. FINALLY WE HAVE A BREAKFAST PLACE IN S/T! don't be scared off by the swishy atmosphere of a "golf club". i'm sure they're just happy to have customers, these days.
