Breakfast in Beverly Hills

I will be in Beverly Hills this Friday and Saturday, and would love to have a couple of great breakfast options. I am staying at the Beverly Hilton and won't have a car, but can walk or cab.

I'm not really looking for the diner or bakery experience, and I'm not looking for breakfast at the Peninsula either. Where do the locals go?

Any help would be much appreciated.

    1. Walk to Barney Greengrass, top floor of Barney's dept store, middle of bev hills on south side of wilshire. They are the sturgeon kings and also have the best smoked salmon, eggs, french toast, juice etc...can sit on patio outside and get some sun. maybe see a star, but better, enjoy the lox -- i go for the "appetizer" which is still a big plate and comes with bagel/bialy. if you are an early riser, i would check their opening hours.

      i know you said locals, but this is beverly hills!

      1. How about Larry King's favorite place...Nate & Al
        414 N Beverly Dr
        Beverly Hills, CA 90210
        (310) 274-0101

        1. agree w/ nate 'n' al's for an old deli.

          really like the breakfasts at Porta Via

          a little pricey, but great crepe-like pancakes, french toast and omelettes, kate mantilini on wilshire at doheny.

          1. re: Emme

            Last time I tried Kate Mantilini for breakfast on a weekday it was closed. Has it reopened for breakfast? They have the best crepe like pancakes!

              here are the hours:


              looks like 1130 on friday, 11 on saturday and 10 on sunday

          2. I second Barney's Greengrass. They have a great selection and you won't have the greasy aftertaste that is so usual w/ the other deli's.
