Best omelette in Los Angeles

Hey everyone - I'm on the hunt for the best consensus $-$$ omelette in the Los Angeles area. I've tried (and liked) John O'Groats, Patrick's Roadhouse and the Omelette Parlor in Santa Monica. Can those be beat? Thanks all!

  1. Hi Joe,

    My favorites for Egg-selent Omelettes seem to be the Franco-Inspired Cafes. I love the omelettes at Chez Nouz in Burbank & those from Cafe' Midi on La Brea in L.A. The addition of gourmet ingriedients like Brie, Rosemaried Potatoes, Sour Cream, Lobster, Salmon or, etc.-etc., take the Omelette experience to Nirvana for me! Happy eating!!

    1. Literati (the nicer part) on Wilshire in WLA/Brentwood...great breakfast

        I like Literati's omelets best of any, too. I always get mine with spinach, mushrooms, and swiss cheese.

        Other omelets I like are the Socal Omelet (tomatoes, basil, and feta cheese) at Coffee Table in Eagle Rock. And I just had an excellent veggie omelet oozing with goat cheese at Mike and Anne's in South Pasadena yesterday.

      2. They are wonderful at the Original Pancake House in Redondo Beach on PCH. They bake them so they rise a few inches and are soft and fluffy and melty. My favorite in LA.

          The omlettes at the Pancake House are OUTSTANDING!

        2. Barney Greengrass always has some great special (egg white) omelette of the day... last time I had sundried tomato, artichoke hearts, and maybe pesto?

          Toast or Doughboys

          For clean egg white omelettes, I will be honest and say I do like Jerry's Deli. Please hold your fire.

              Cora's Coffee Shoppe in Santa Monica makes a great omelette with fresh Mozzarella and heirloom tomatoes. Served with a delicious baked potato wedge, fresh bread and homemade preserves.
