Creative breakfast dishes in LA

Hello - I know there are tons of postings on breakfast but I have a slightly different search. While I like traditional breakfast dishes, I also really like finding new breakfast/brunch dishes that you can't find at every single restaurant. What places have different and delicious dishes or place a creative spin on traditional dishes? Thanks.

  1. If Venice/Santa Monica is OK, I think you would like SAUCE ON HAMPTON, one block N of Main at Rose. One of our favorites for BLD.

    BLD Restaurant
    7450 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

    1. Hugo's.

          I LOVE Hugo's! They can make almost all of their food either vegan or vegetarian. It's great! Plus there's a parking lot which is a big plus.

            i miss Hugo's i used to live a few blocks away and it was my regular weekend spot. always got the same thing - the Oatmeal Frittata...which i can't eat anymore. sigh. if they could de-glutenize it for me i'd make the trek all the way from the Marina just for that!

        2. Zengo Santa Monica has their peking duck hash
          poached egg / poblanos rajas / caramelized onion
          plantain dish as part of their unlimited small plates brunch.

          395 Santa Monica Place, Santa Monica, CA 90401

            2. I'd say the Nickel Diner is a good example of a place that strives to do that. From their maple bacon and Irish Car Bomb doughnuts to their spicy bbq pork hash to their house made jams.

              524 S Main St, Los Angeles, CA 90013

              1. Simple and delicious great pancakes at The Original Pancake House in Redondo Beach on PCH, I love their thin and chewy 49er flapjacks. Also giant apple pancakes and Dutch Babies.
