In Search of... Breakfast in Silverlake.

I'm going to be in Silverlake for an early business meeting and am looking for a great place to get breakfast. Ideas?
Square One Dining, not technically in Silver Lake but close, is your best best bet. I assume it's on a weekday since it's a business meeting? In that case places that only weekend and late brunch like Malo and Cliff's Edge are out.
Lamill Coffee -- nice spot for a meeting, food a bit pricey but worth it.
Millie's and Madame Matisse -- food is decent but seating is mostly on the sidewalk, not great for a meeting.

Lamill Coffee Boutique

You eating alone or is the meeting during breakfast?
Millie's on Sunset is a curbside diner fare like experience.
La Mill represents all that is newly bougie and annoying in Silver Lake and is completely overpriced. Even so, their coffee is routinely excellent and the food is good although portions can be microscopic. I'd suggest Millie's, which serves cafe style food that's taken up a notch or two - really good quality and huge portions. Plus, the coffee ain't bad.
I recently went to the Coffee Table. The blueberry pie was delicious, with big blueberries inside, and the coffee was okay. It seems like a good place to meet people, talk, get coffee, etc. They also have bagels and cream cheese. Call or look online to check their hours. I don't know what time they open and close.

I second the Square One Dining suggestion if it is close enough to Silver Lake for you. EXCELLENT French Toast.
