Any recommended places for breakfast in Palmdale? I'm growing tired of my hotel's breakfast menu.

    The Pines Cafe is the best, not too far outside Palmdale and my favorite roadside diner in California!

      Ahh, thanks. I had forgotten about the Pines, I've driven by it several times.

        I mayself wondered about the Pines this weekend. How far is it from Sherman Oaks, time wise?

          Since I've done almost exactly that drive... it should be around an hour as long as you don't hit heavy traffic.

        You might want to try 'Crazy Ottos' they have a couple of locations around Palmdale and Lancaster, and one in Acton, very close to Palmdale. They have good omelettes, and great potatoes and fresh salsa.

          Have you tried their pancakes, waffles, French toast and maybe lunch stuff like burgers and other sandwiches? I haven't been but I've driven by one of them and it looked kinda cute. But cute signage doesn't make for good chow!

            I have only been there for breakfast, I have had their omelettes, and also their waffles and pancakes. I really like their breakfast, they are a little too far from us, but we still have made trips there just for breakfast. My favorite is the bacon and avocado omellete. Also if I am going to be in the area or passing by I always make plans to stop there. I always order half omellete, they have that option, their portions tend to be pretty big. This is the only place that I will consider eating breakfast when in the AV. They used to be located at the old train station off sierra highway, right next to the train tracks, until Metrolink shut the original location down.
            .......now I really have to make plans to go there for breakfast, too bad is kind of late today.....

          Well, finally made it to Pines last week, and I have to say, it was everything folks here said it was. One of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time (I had the hominy and chorizo eggs)
