Let's put together a pancake hootenanny!

OK, say someone, ahem, wanted to do a pancake tour of the LA board areas. For several months, he or she would hit every viable pancake place hounders love. Where would they be going?

I'll start in the SFV, but add any rec!:

Follow Your Heart
More than Waffles
Ci Ci's cafe

      What are Musso's like? Where is Musso?

        Musso and Frank on Hollywood serve flannel cakes ... maybe that's what mc_michael meant?

        1. re: Diana

          Musso & Frank's is on Hollywood Boulevard - just west of Cherokee, I believe.

      2. Ronnie's Diner in the Marina/Culver City and the Brickhouse in Venice.

        1. Square One, definitely, on Fountain behind the Scientology Center.

          Doughboys - their blueberry flaxseed pancakes are awesome.

          Edited to add: Browsing through the LATimes food archives this morning and came across this article, which has more suggestions:

          1. Good fancy pancakes at Julienne, San Marino.

            1. Of course, the Original Pancake House for their massive-yet-thin 49ers. Three pancakes the size of hubcaps (well, almost), but as thin as crepes. Really filling, yet delicate. We go to the one in Manhattan Beach (or is it Torrance-adjacent?)...

                You may be talking about the Redondo Beach location. I agree about those 49er Flap Jacks – the perfect pancake. The Original Pancake House is a national chain yet it cannot be beat for pancakes of all kinds. The only down-side about this place is everyone knows about it and the wait can be crazy. Going early is a must. I also like the pancakes at Pie 'n Burger because they remind me very much of the 49er Flap Jacks at OPH -- large, thin and just a little chewy. I like Egg Heaven Café for a Blue stack with a great Blue Berry compote on top. Add a side of their sausage and that is a great breakfast. Jongewaard's Bake 'n Broil has good home style pancakes and has become one of my favorite places for breakfast because of the menu and those pies, cakes, muffins, ......
