Breakfast at Lucky Devils? Do tell!

They've been threatening to start having breakfast/brunch at Lucky Devils for some time. Has anyone tried it, or even seen a menu? Would love to know anything about it.
Seems like a perfect pairing with a Sunday morning at the Hollywood Farmer's Market...
I haven't tried it but I saw the menu. It looked very interesting. I can't remember it too well, but they did have a very interesting breakfast sandwich with that amazing bacon.
ok - we went to Lucky Devils this morning and the food was excellent. I had a breakfast sandwich that had eggs, bacon, spicy roasted peppers and cheese. It also came with kurobata sausage, which I had on the side. This was extremely tasty as well. All egg dishes come with potatoes or salad. I opted for the potatoes and they are very nice and crunchy - sort of a really crispy smashed potato. I am a big fan of their salads as well - the pineapple viniagrette is the best dressing in town.
Husband had the tasmanian(?!) sourdough pancakes w/blueberries. These were nice and thin and had real tartness about them. There was also a really earthly, sort of hoppy undertone that I liked a lot. They weren't too sweet and came with real maple syrup.
Friends both had omelettes and pronounced them great - they are not the sharing kind so I'm going to have to take their word for it. One of them had jalapeno cornbread with her eggs that looked great.
The only drawback was that the food came out in shifts. I had my sandwich a good 5 minutes before the omelettes came out and the pancakes came another 5 minutes later. I know that they are just getting it together and the food was good enough to get me back.
They don't have espresso drinks. The coffee is good, bit great. They also have an abbreviated version of their lunch/dinner menu available at breakfast - some burgers and sandwiches.
It was pretty empty. They are open at 8am on Saturday and Sunday.
The breakfast potatoes are delish. First, they're baked, then smashed, then fried. Tastes kind of like potato skins, without the sour cream and cheese. They have two kinds of sausage, but the spicier one is better. I'm not wowed by their bacon, although I guess others like it. I also had a corn pancake with blueberries and sour cream which was very good.
Boy, I think I am going to have to check this out. I love corn pancakesand any kind of creative breakfast items. But how early is too early for ale with breakfast? In fact, this would be the perfect opportunity for a Lagunitas Cappucino Stout with breakfast!
