I'm looking for a good, cheap coffee and/or breakfast spot near La Brea and Santa Monica Blvd. in Los Angeles for Friday morning. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thank you.

    I ended up at the French Quarter on Santa Monica Blvd. before Crescent Heights in West Hollywood for breakfast. The restaurant is very cute, and the salmon eggs benedict plate was very good. I would go back. Someone also recommended Hugo's, so I might try that next time.

        French quarter was the proto-type for the Mimi's Cafe chain, and was in fact was the location of much of its headquarters activities until it was sold off several years ago to Bob Evans of Columbus, Ohio.
        Never a bad meal, never a very good/excellent meal - yet reliable for its trying to be.
        Might think about BLD on Beverly next time, definitely Hugo's as well.

        I know it's not the destination of the urban hipster, but McDonald's is just up LaBrea. Breakfast at Mickey D's ? First off, it's the best meal they do and second, two sausage McMuffin/eggs for 3 bucks. That's just a bargain plain and simple. But almost all of their breakfast is top notch and the coffee kicks ass. Another great advantage of a meal at that particular mcDonald's is there will be no shortage of "characters" to provide entertainment.

          About a half-mile from there is Cafe Verona (2nd St. & LaBrea), which does an excellent breakfast.

              If you are going to go to Cafe Verona, go to Cayenne Cafe on Beverly just west of LaBrea. They make great breakfasts, love their breakfast pizza, as well as their omelettes.

                Cheap, in that area--Astro Burger on Santa Monica/Gardner. Good, IMO, in that area, Susina Bakery. The best croissants ever--esp. the one with tomato, sheese and carmelized onion. Good quiche too.

                  Thank you for the suggestions everyone. I'll keep these in mind the next time I'm in that area. :-)
