BEST hearty BREAKFAST in Los Angeles area! Bacon, Eggs, Potatoes, Pancakes, French Toast! The Works!
Hello to all of my fellow chowhounders!
I am looking for a delicious hearty classic style breakfast anywhere in los angeles! I am willing to drive! And i am willing to pay whatever! I would just like all of your best recommendations! Links, pictures, whatever you can give me! I'm going to breakfast with my sister this saturday, and we love bacon, french toast, pancakes, hashbrowns, potatoes, eggs (you get the idea)! The works! Nothing fancy, just classic, american style breakfast only! =)
Although there are naysayers regarding much of their food (and I agree with them) what you've described couldn't be more of The Original Pantry. Avoid the ham, stick with the bacon. Potatoes and sourdough toast, both well done. More upscale is Pacific Dining Car (with prices to match).. Or go to Topanga Canyon for Pat's Topanga Grill, midway through the canyon. Their hamsteaks shine, the French toast is excellent as are the pancakes. And a pleasant drive, to boot.
If the food in the pictures on Eat at Joe's website is your idea of BEST hearty BREAKFAST, I'd have to ask WTF (respectfully of course). It looks no better than Norm's. Granted, I've never been to Eat at Joe's despite living only a mile away. So maybe I should see for myself...but please Joe, if the pictures don't do the food justice, change those pictures!
If you haven't been to the Griddle Cafe on Sunset Blvd. before it should definitely go on your list. Also, if you are ever down in the South Bay then drop into the Original Pancake House in Redondo Beach.

Early World Restaurant on San Vicente in Brentwood is good for breakfast. Eggs come out perfectly cooked, bacon is crisp, hash browns are yummy, french toast is good and pancakes are, well, pancakes. As well, seating is very comfortable booth seating. Friendly service and small parking lot in the back off of Montana. Only problem is, although their breakfasts are yummy, that bill sure does add up. Prices are high.
disagree, i've always had to send my eggs back, numerous times in one sitting. They don't understand runny yolk, solid white.
hash browns are usually still raw in the middle and burnt on the outside when asked to be well done.
nothing puts me off more than that
SO not worth the money.
