Breakfast/brunch with in 30 min of LAX

  • 4

Landing with my Australian boyfriend at 6:30am on a weekday on my first trip home since moving to Oz. A friend who lives an hour outside of LA is picking us up at terminal and dropping off before next flight. Flight for Chicago leaves at 1:30pm. Factoring in 2 hours for customs and 2 hours preflight that gives us 3 hours to catch a bite to eat and maybe a quick stretch of legs.

Any recommendations that factoring in am traffic wont be more than 30-40 minutes? And yes our luggage will be in car, though not much as I plan on shopping while home :)

      This is a wonderful place for close by LAX, and good breakfast options, (and as an added benefit you get to dine in a true L.A. classic "Googie" architectural gem).

        All good recommendations plus I'd add Martha's 22nd St Grill right on the sand in Hermosa Beach and North End Cafe in Manhattan Beach.
