Favorite breakfast spots?
I hope I am the only one in town that can't find an original, kick ass breakfast. San Diego has them, SF plenty, but LA is rampant with the same menu over and over in a different neighborhood. Help me out Hounds-Make me a believer!
When it comes to breakfast, I'm usually fine with the same menu over and over as long as it's done well.
But if you're talking about *original* breakfasts, you definitely need to check out Square One (savory) or Doughboy's (sweet). These places have breakfast menus of the type you're unlikely to see just about anywhere else on the planet.

Here are some Valley picks - I can't drag myself over the hill that early on a weekend morning:
Jumping Java in Studio City - great unique omelettes and pancakes larger than your head.
Aroma on Tujunga in Studio City - nice garden atmosphere, hearty breakfasts with really fresh fruit.
Caioti Pizza - surprisingly they have a decent spread for an Italian restaurant, and substitute complimentary mini cinnamon rolls for their signature nighttime garlic rolls.
And actually, one 3rd street recommendation: The Little Next Door. They have a lovely selection of warm quiches and pastries, along with lavender and herbal infused champagne as an alternative to mimosas.
