      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!

          John O'Groats is known for theirs.

          Original Pancake House has them too.

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

              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.

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

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

                      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.
