Killer Breakfast Burrito on West Side of LA

michael oesterlin Nov 13, 2001 08:31 AM

I used to go to the 'Purple Shack aka Gloria's' just off of Olympic and Barrington near Ralphs in West LA for a seriously good breakfast burrito.

She moved East due to health and safety regulations. Second burrito place lost to gentrification. Used to be one called Brothers Burrito where Starbucks is in the intersection of Bundy & Santa Monica & Broadway in West LA.

Where can I find one that isn't as cleaned up as Baja Fresh et al on the West Side...Santa Monica, Venice, West LA Brentwood?

      Good tip. I always thought their hours were a bit odd.

      Thanks very much.

        If we're going to bring up a 5 year old post it should be noted Gallegos has moved to Venice Blvd just west of Centenela.

        Breakfast is still great and so are their tomales.

      Ahhh - Gloria's . . . . does anyone happen to know if they've tried opening at another spot after the Venice/Culver City storefront?

        Try Big Tomy's on Sawtelle and Pico, across the street from Best Buy. Breakfast burritos served from 4-11 in the mornings only, though. B+.

              Mmmm... breakfast burritos, best way to start the day. Here'a a thread from a few years back with several of my Westside b-fast burrito recs.
