Best reasonable breakfast spot in LA?
been to many..norms, jans, dinahs, maxwells, juniors, doughboys. anyone else have some gems?
Rutt's Hawaiian Cafe in Mar Vista
Get the Original Royale (char shiu, Portugese sausage, scrambled egg, green onion and sprouts over a bed of fried or white rice, in three sizes.) They have conventional breakfasts too (pancakes and the like.) Meals always under $10.
My favorite breakfast spot above all others.

Kokomo on Bevrly has great breakfasts - really good bacon, no booze though. Basix on Santa Monica blvd across the street from Gelson's has very good breakfasts and a nice cremant d'Alsace rose by the glass too. If you like pancakes, check out DuPars at 3rd and Fairfax. These three are great for the price.
i'm a huge fan of square one, but they did just increase the prices. it still is comparable to the other places mentioned, items are in the $8-12 range with coffee and juice would be less than $20 per. the brioche french toast is phenomenal and you can get a seasonal warm or cold fruit topping that is always fantastic. all their produce is local farmer's market goodness, i think the coffee is intelligentsia. and you can sit on the patio with your dog, gotta love that!
I like FOOD on Pico (at Prosser, between Overland & Beverly Glen) in WLA. Actually, it is just a couple of blocks west of O'Groats, on the north side of the street.
Great ricotta pancakes with fresh berries, egg dishes, quesadillas, plus several veg/vegan choices. No booze, but good coffee & fresh juices.
