jodiz Jul 28, 2007 07:18 AM

I'm staying in West Hollywood for the week. Any recommendations for breakfast in the area? Thanks.

    Hugo's on Santa Monica Blvd. 2 or 3 blocks east of La Cienega.

      As recommended, Hugo's. There was this thread from just a day or two ago that covers more places in the WeHo area for breakfast / lunch.

        In addition to Hugo's, Griddle Cafe, Toast, Third Stop, Quality, Ed's Coffee Shop on Robertson (one of my favorite hole-in-the-walls).

          GRUB on Seward is my fave for weekend breakfasts (not open for breakfast on weekdays).

            I know that Hugo's has its fans and so does the Griddle on Sunset, both of which I have eaten at countless times, but I still put my money on:
            Doughboys: 8136 W 3rd Street, 323.651.4202 It is located on 3rd street between Crescent Heights and La Cienega.
            Huge creative breakfast menu, served all day, amazing soups, best french onion soup anywhere.

              I forgot to recommend the old standby: Kings Road Cafe at 8361 Beverly Blvd @ Kings Road 323.655.9044 Excellent simple breakfasts, great oatmeal and delicious sandwiches served with their signature red cabbage slaw.

              In addition to everything else already posted (Doughboys, Grub, Toast, etc.) I'd add:

              The Newsroom on Robertson
              Jar (if you're feeling spendy... but just on Sunday)
              Basix on Santa Monica
              Kokomos at the Farmers Market
              Dupars at the Farmers Market
              Lulus (owned by the Toast Folks) on Beverly
              Urth Cafe on Melrose (for the people watching)
              Cheebo on Sunset

                The French Quarter, 7985 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood
                Big menu, terrific food and reasonable. Excellent service.
                Beautiful restaurant and patio, free parking adjacent.

                  In addition to seconding several of the above recommendations (Grub, Doughboys, Kokomos for pumpkin pancakes) I would add:
                  BLD (Neil Frazer's causal breakfast lunch and dinner spot) on Beverly a few blocks West of La Brea and
                  Bread Bar (for yummy pastries etc) on Third a few blocks west of La Cienega

                  If you don't mind going about a mile outside of West Hollywood, I'd recommend Cafe Verona at 2nd St. & LaBrea. Delicious frittatas, French toast (made w/brioche), polenta & coffee drinks. There's a small lot out back, and free 2-hour parking on the residential streets east and west of LaBrea. (LaBrea is metered.)

                    You can also get your oil changed there!
