Good breakfast place near Flintridge?

fairfax Oct 10, 2013 10:31 AM

We're coming into Burbank airport this Saturday morning, and heading to Descanso Gardens in Flintridge. Any suggestions for a good breakfast place between the two locations? Thanks!

    There's Dish in La Canada which is close by. I heard it's pretty good.
    DISH La Canada
    734 Foothill Boulevard

      I'll second the suggestion of Dish. The last time we ate there, it was excellent, although it was not a breakfast. But I looked at the breakfast menu and it was quite appealing.

        Thanks for the Dish recommendation. We have a Dish or two up in the Bay Area and they're always reliable. Looks like I know where we're going!

          Is Monrovia close enough for you? I love The Peach Cafe!

            The Peach Cafe is 15 miles east of La Canada Flintridge, so not sure if that's w/i the OP's radius....

              I mistakenly thought that peaches had closed.

            I'm still trying to wrap my little pea-brain around someone referring to La Canada as "Flintridge".

            That said, take a look at Black Cow Cafe.

              Yeah, I had to do a double take.

              For some reason, the city of Flint registered first.

              La Cabinita in Montrose has great breakfasts. It's not between Burbank & Descanso. But it's less than two milles away.

              Glendale‎ CA‎ 91208

                  La Cabanita and Black Cow, mentioned by others, are also fine places. Didn't know La Cabanita was open for breakfast, will have to check that out.

                      Btw, is there still the hot dog hut stand there that was located on Foothill that was patterned after the Weiner Factory ???

                      Anyone have a clue regarding the place I'm talking about ?

                        The Doghouse 2238 Foothill Blvd La Canada, CA 91011 is closed. The Dog Haus and Slaw Dogs are both still around in that general area (but not on Foothill)
