Breakfast Burrito at 4:00AM on a Sunday?

I am working on a sunrise photo shoot in Downtown LA near the Staples Center on Sunday morning. Any good breakfast burrito spots close to downtown open early on Sunday or 24 hours?

  1. Tommy's has a pretty good (in a Tommy-ish way) one and they are open 24/7 at Beverly & Rampart.

      You'll remember that burrito for the next 24 hours for sure.

      You'd be better off having breakfast at The Original Pantry.

        You're right about that (burp...) and, despite all the flack that Pantry gets on this board, I'd go there first for breakfast but the OP specified a breakfast burrito.

        That is the one I would get. Actually, I would get two with everything on them. Better yet, get the Break Fast Burrito and the Breakfast sandwich on the muffin and say "Everything on it." IMO, L.A. at it's morning best. Maybe call to be sure they offer this at 4:00 am coz that might still be the doinner hour.

      3. Couple of options:

        Farmer Boys. www.farmerboysla.com

        J&S. (887 N Garfield Ave, Montebello)

          Solid Breakfast Burritos 24/7

          1. If it were me, I'd go to the Pacific Dining Car on 6th. It will cost a bit more, but it's easy and very good. Also open 24/7.

              He wants a burrito, but I agree with you completely -- especially for the breakfast filet, potatoes, eggs, and toast.

                    Lucy's is as good as any of the other places.

                  2. I ended up getting the Breakfast Burrito's at Farmer Boys LA, and let me say, for a local chain place, these guys whip up a good burrito. The sausage burrito had the perfect grease to salsa ratio that is ever so important to the moistness. It's nice to have a burrito made with hash browns instead of being overstuffed with chunky potatoes for filler.
                    J&S in Montebello has a more authentic version with Chorizo that is great too!

                      Good to know that, before I go out to plow the back 40, there is a credible breakfast burrito for all the farmers (most of those are undoubtedly hydroponic) in LA. ;-D>

                      Thanks for coming back to make a report!

                        I wonder how far your commute would be from downtown LA to your back 40. : )

                        1. re: jeffandnat

                          Not far. That's my back 40 sq. ft. patio...and that would be me getting ploughed...
