Fancy Birthday Breakfast
Hello! I am trying to think of a place to bring a friend for breakfast for her birthday that is special. We will be meeting on a weekday & prefer the westside to beverly hills. I am wondering if one of the nicer hotels might be good? or is there some place with a view? of course good food is a must as well. I have many favorite breakfast places (urth cafe, amandine, city bakery, literati etc) but none of them have that special quality I am looking for to celebrate. help!
If the atmosphere is as important to you as the food (as I suspect it would be for a birthday bash), then a first-class hotel such as those suggested is the place to go. I would add the Coast Cafe at Shutters on the beach in Santa Monica.
But if food quality trumps decor or view, then a weekday is the perfect opportunity to beat the weekend crowds at John O'Groats on Pico in Rancho Park.
Biscuits to die for, buckwheat pancakes ... as I say, no atmosphere, but the best breakfast in L.A.
