Bake & Broil-breakfast

Went there this morning with my roomie.
She had the cinnamon roll french toast...very cinnamony in every bite.
I ordered the country breakfast with biscuits and gravy, sausages, egges over easy and incredible hash browns. The biscuits and gravy were perfect. The biscuits were fluffy and had just the right amount of gravy, which was the quite flavorful (the best buscuits and gravy I have had yet). The sausages were huge with just the right amount of spices and they give you 2! Now, the hash browns were really interesting. They appeared to be sliced, like on a mandolin, and then chopped with peppers and onions. I asked for a side of salsa, which I always put on my eggs and hash browns. Their salsa was also fresh and I assume house made.
I cannot wait to go back and try something else. They have a menu board with daily specials. I watched as someone received their order of fresh blackberry pancakes and was envious.

  1. I also had that breakfast on my last visit. I agree it is that good. My first breakfast there was the Chicken Fried Steak. It is a fresh steak that they tenderize, batter and fry. Very tender and just the right amount of gravy. IMO one of the best CFS in the L.A. The biscuits are like a real home-made country style and also came smothered. My daughter-in-law still talks about the Red Velvet cupcake I brought to her from there. She says it was the most moist cake she has ever had and I have brought her cupcakes from most of the places discussed here. My wife loved the Cinnamon roll and Sticky Bun (me also). My son and I have been planning to go for breakfast as soon as we can get it together because he likes banana cream pie and the reviews here are very high. I saw they had a special breakfast burrito on the board. Because of the recent post about breakfast burritos (two of those places I have tried and still looking) and that salsa at Jongewaard's you mentioned, which I also tried, I have been thinking about asking about that Jongewaard's breakfast burrito next time I go.

      The banana cream pie at B&B is my favorite in LA County. Very fresh tasting.

      1. re: Ernie

        I had the banana cream pie tonight. I bought the pie this morning and five of us ate it after dinner. This pie is a true LA must try. The whipped cream on the top is as good as ice cream. The filling with bananas is perfect. The crust is also perfect and I had no oil-like after taste like I get from so many crust. I had that breakfast burrito also while I was there but was not as impressed as I was with the other breakfest I have had. The salsa took control of every bite and there was not enough meat. I just might stay with that Chicken fried steak -- a great breakfast and a good price. The pie was $9.95 and everyone tonight told me that I must get two next time.

        1. re: JeetJet

          So glad you liked the pie, Jeet. I agree that whipped cream is so nice, very milky-fresh tasting. I've never tried the burritos there but I think Bake & Broil's strength is the in their simpler classic American diner dishes.

          1. re: Ernie

            Maybe the burger next. Have you tried their burger? When I are that ultra tender chicken fried steak I wondered about their burger.

            1. re: JeetJet

              The Bake & Broil burger is one of my favorites. I like it with cheese and grilled onions. They offer a combo that includes either a salad (with those great croutons), fries, or a slice of pie.

      2. re: JeetJet

        Ditto on the great breakfasts there. AND they serve it all day!

        1. re: JeetJet

          Went again today...and I had the chicken fried steak. Wow! It's a real steak, usually when I have had this, it's a cheap piece of meat that you really can't call a steak. Comes with the same gravy that they use on the biscuits. My friend had the lemon blueberry panckes with raspberry sauce. Great flavor as well as light and fluffy. The wait was a little longer as we had a party of three. If there are only two, the wait is minimal as most of their seating is for two. Can't wait to try their burgers as many have mentioned.

          1. Just had a huge slice of their heavenly Lemon Lush pie. I can say with confidence that this is my favorite pie anywhere. Bake N Broils croutons are superb as well as their quiche.

              1. re: shelovestoeat

                Bake & Broil is great, have been going there for years. I agree those croutons are fantastic and are so good in their salads and French onion soup. Can't wait for their fresh apricot pie!

                1. re: shelovestoeat

                  oh my god, I am trying the Lemon Lush pie for the first time RIGHT THIS SECOND and it is sooooooo good.

                2. wish it were closer to me than long beach!
