BREAKFAST you fast we all want to break fast in SANTA MONICA!

I'm at the Fairmont in Santa Monica which is on the corner of Ocean and Wilshire. Where should we eat breakfast? My brother wants "amazing pancakes" and I would like eggs benedict. We want a place that we can say "wow these are the best pancakes ever!". Help please!

  1. I like Bread and Porridge at 2315 Wilshire. The banana-pecan pancakes are quite delicious (as are the blueberry ones)

        You might walk down to Cora's on Ocean (south of your hotel about 8 tenths of a mile).

    1. The usual suspects in SM:

      Bread & Porridge
      Snug Harbor

        I love Snug Harbor because it's a real trip back in time, in a really good way.

      2. Not sure if they have amazing pancakes, and I've only been for breakfast once, but La Grande Orange has a good egg sandwich on their home made English muffins. I assume their other breakfast offerings are good as well. And if you venture into Marina Del Rey, Nichols restaurant has very good pancakes.

        1. The Brickhouse in Venice, not fancy, a locals joint that's fun, but fine eggs benedict - don't know about pancakes.
          Favorite breakfast in the area is still the French Market on Abbott Kinney between Venice and Washington. Wonderfully french with a nice patio, interesting customers, but obviously no eb, pancakes or potatoes. Breakfast & lunch daily, dinner th-sun.

          1. Snug Harbor or Huckleberry
