Does anyone know where to find buckwheat pancakes? In L. A., Hollywood, West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Westwood? Thank you.

    Original Pancake House, in Redondo (?) has pretty much the best buckwheats I've had that didn't come out of my kitchen and, like, 14 hours of slow-rising.

    They're sensational.

    Also: sour cream, and cream of wheat pancakes, and enormous apple-filled dutch babies.

        AXE on Abbot Kinney in Venice has great multigrain pancakes. You can also get a 1/2 order.

          I second the John O'Groats recommendation. I love their buckwheat pancakes, especially with the fruit cooked in. I really like the raspberry.

            OK I know you're asking for buckwheat, but how about giving the "Almond Granola Pancakes" at Hugo's in Studio City or West Hollywood a go? They kinda reminded me of buckwheat pancakes when I tried them.

              IHOPs are inedible, almost like trying to eat cardboard :-(

                John O'Groats is known for theirs.

                Original Pancake House has them too.

                    Swingers on Beverly (and I assume the Santa Monica location as well.) Has delicious whole grain pancakes, not sure the percentage of buckwheat per se but they are the lightest most "regular pancake" pancakes I've ever had. And if you drop some strawberries on those bad boys, a little veggie sausage patty on the side, Barabara, you have yourself a meal! Cheers!
