  1. Can't go wrong with Nate 'n' Als.

      1. it sort of depends on what you like to eat for breakfast...eggs? pancakes? bagels & lox?

        you can't go wrong with the nova, egg & onion scramble at Barney Greengrass!

          I'd be OK with takeout from Barney Greengrass but the view is not enough to tempt me to eat there. Not after i saw a busboy recycling bread baskets. Indifferent service too. See my review:

            well i did specifically only recommend a single dish, but i just read your review (thanks for the link) and it makes me sad that you had such a disappointing experience. admittedly, the service does suck at times, but i've never had a problem with the food there...and as someone who was raised on Zabar's, Katz's, Carnegie, and the original BG in NYC, i know good deli.

            i'm surprised about the bialy issue - if it was missing onions, they may have [unfortunately] stopped serving Kossar's bialys, which, IMHO are the ultimate. but even if it had been from Kossar's, charging you $4.75 for it was positively ABSURD.

            i've never tried their sturgeon so i don't know if that was a fluke (no fish pun intended). but their nova, sable, whitefish and chopped liver have all been great when i've had them.

            again, serious bummer that your experience was a bust, but if, for some, reason, you ever find yourself back there (perhaps on someone else's dime...?), try the signature nova, eggs & onions. they always get it right.

              I recently had a very positive experience at Greenblatt's Deli on Sunset.

                i've never been to Greenblatt's. i live in San Diego now, which is a deli WASTELAND...but i'll keep it in mind when i'm up in LA. thanks!

          1. I like the breakfast at Le Conversation. Where Weho/Bev Hills meet, on Doheny, just north of Santa Monica.

              I second this recommendation.
              Just a wonderful neighborhood meeting place.
