Off the Beaten Path Breakfasts
I'm on the hunt for some amazing breakfast spots in the LA/OC/Santa Barbara area. Definitely want to stay away from anything touristy or commercial. Open to all kinds of different interpretations of "breakfast" too. Please let me know your favorites!
Thanks so much!
Best Pancakes in LA are at The Original Pancake House in Redondo Beach on PCH. Dutch Babies, giant apple pancakes and my favorite are their chewy 49'er flapjacks. Worth a visit.
Also Uncle Bill's Pancakes in Manhattan Beach for their wonderful Cheddar Bacon Waffles,
and Martha's 22nd st Grill for their great one of a kind scrambles like their white corn and harvarti.
25 22nd St
Hermosa Beach, CA 90254
Also, I love the lox and bagel plate at Plate 38 in Pasadena. They deep fry their capers!
The Chilaquiles at El Matador on Irwindale Bl in Irwindale is also really good. I also see a lot of people buying their Menudo, but not being a fan, I cannot comment on it.
The German Pancake at Flappy Jack's in Glendora is amazing!
Filipino breakfast Long-si-log at Max's in Glendale. Its Filipino sausage, garlic fried rice and an egg fried over easy.
Nick's Cafe at Pico and LaCienega. Old fashion greesy spoon fair.
Auntie Em's in Eagle Rock. Great brunch spot.
Chorizo and eggs at Cacao in Eagle Rock.
Our favorite breakfast is at Johny Reb's in Bellflower (Also Long Beach). Great place to get brisket and eggs, grits, amazing pancakes, and for special occasions like Mardi Gras or Father's day they have beignets, Prime rib n eggs, and shrimp-n-grits (which I like for breakfast).
