We are heading to LA for Labor Day weekend, one because my husband wants the mozzarella bar at osteria mozza, and two, I want pancakes at the griddle cafe.

I have two other mornings, I'm thinking of Grub? Any other must eat places for pancakes? We are staying in west hollywood and will have a car. Thanks!

  1. The Griddle ... in West Hollywood, on Sunset & Crescent Heights.

        Agree as well... how did this place get left off the list?

      2. Try John O'Groats on Pico Blvd. in Cheviot Hills/WLA for pancakes.

          I am a fan of O’Groats Lemon Pancakes

            The lemon pancakes at O'Groats are heavenly.

            My Husbasnd loves the pumpkin pancakes at O'Groats. I am not such a pancake fan but the Corned Beef Hash - weekends only - is excellent.

          3. We love the pancakes at Uncle Bill's Pancake House, in Manhattan Beach, don't know if that's too far of a trek for you....

              Love Uncle Bill's Bacon Cheddar Waffle & their cheddar bacon french toast too.

                Yes, it's kinda ridiculous, isn't it? My kids love the chocolate chip ones, of course.

            2. Oatmeal pancakes at Salt's Cure.

              1. BLD for blueberry ricotta pancakes, best version of it in LA that I've found. I don't think JoG's is On the same level as BLD and Griddle.

                  I actually like John O'Groats pancakes better than The Griddle. Haven't had them at BLD but I aim to as soon as I can.

                  1. re: baloney

                    +1 on BLD pancakes. I'm not even a big pancake person, but my god, those are irresistible. And the most adorable little log cabin syrup bottles too! The breakfast sandwich with big fat bacon is no slouch either. Enjoy!
