Snug Harbor, Bread & Porridge, or Jack n Jills?...for sausage n eggs...

I've read a lot of reviews on the pancakes and french toast for these places but which serves the better sausage, eggs, and hashbrowns combo?

Also, how are the non-breakfast foods at these places?

  1. you might try Reys on Pico also...that usually fills the "comfort breakfast" need for me..

    1. I have only eaten at Bread & Porridge and Snug Harbor and after eating at Snug Harbor, I was shocked that it's received any recommendations on this board. Maybe we were there on an off day, but it seemed like whoever was cooking hated people and food. Our hashbrowns were cold and limp, my smoked salmon omelette was also tepid and was full of overcooked pieces of salmon that tasted disgustingly fishy. I could only choke down a few bites and it's very rare for me to not finish most of my food even if I don't love it. My boyfriend got the biscuits and gravy and it was probably the worst version I've tried: cold, congealed gravy over bicuits that seemed as if they'd probably recently come out of a bag in the freezer. I was so bummed because the service was sweet and efficient and the back patio is very cute.

      We ate at Callahan's on Wilshire last weekend for the first time and were completely surprised that this little unassuming place actually has a serviceable (and cheap!) version of biscuits and gravy. I liked my omelette there and the hashbrowns were nice and crispy.

      I've only eaten once at Bread & Porridge but I enjoyed it. I had a tasty version of huevos rancheros and boyfriend had a good pasta dish with sausage.

        I'm actually of the entirely opposite opinion. Among the three, I've also only tried Bread & Porridge and Snug Harbor, and vastly prefer Snug Harbor. Everything I've tried there is great, and they have the most amazing apple butter that comes with whatever carb option you go with. My main gripe with Bread & Porridge is that their dishes don't seem to come together. Everything is cut into big chunks (home fries, sausages, veggies, whatever) and while it tastes good, it's just not cohesive as a scramble, omelette, or whatever I ordered.

        The two places are close enough though that you can put your name down at both and hover to see which one gets to you first. =)

        My other likes for breakfast on the westside are Omelette Parlor in Santa Monica and Rose Cafe in Venice.

          I looove Rose Cafe! Such a well-excuted menu with a great patio where they don't care if you linger for a long time.
