Operation: Best Chocolate Chip Pancakes OR Waffles
I want chocolate for breakfast. Where can I get the best chocolate chip pancakes or waffles? Anywhere be it SFV to SGV will do. If they're destination worthy I'll gas up my car!
Whatever gets the most amount of votes or drool worthy description and I'll be there this weekend. I'll report back Monday with a review AND pictures.
Send me on my way. Go!
Griddle is my first choice.
Bread and Porridge in Santa Monica
Quality in WeHo/mid LA
If just chocolate chip pancakes (without other decadent options to tempt your palate), then Coral Tree Cafe actually does great chocolate chip pancakes.
If you're in WeHo, the Abbey actually has nice fluffy ones.
Also, Literati Cafe in Brentwood
In case it's late night - Swingers
I'd also vote for the griddle cafe, BUT personally I would go for chocolate chip French Toast!!! Why skimp on the decadence and settle fo' waffles ;)
Not that I don't love waffles
Here's my review (w/ photo) on the Devil's Daydream French Toast: http://gourmetpigs.blogspot.com/2008/...
Chocolate bread AND chocolate chips.
Another vote for Griddle if you want the most chocolate chips. But you've been there before and you want to try someplace else, Julienne's in San Marino has bittersweet chocolate waffles. I know that's not chocolate chip, but I can tell you that the rest of their food is great and their pastries are excellent. They know how to do sweets. They serve the waffles with a honey vanilla creme fraiche(!) and berries.
I've been meaning to wake up early one day and try these waffles, for years. If you go let me know how they are!
Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll have to really think about where I'm gonna go cause you guys gave such great choices! I'll leave this open during the week in case someone else pops in with a suggestion. Otherwise I'm gonna try and hit up one of the choco-breakfast options one day during the week.
I'll be back!
I'll add Griddle Cafe for anything related to Pancakes period. Just amazing tasty choices, lots of bang for your buck. I've only been there a few times and I love it!!
