There is a bagel shop opening at 5-6am in my area but is there any other place opening before 6am?

  1. Depending on how much you are willing to pay for breakfast (more in the $15 to $25 per person range) I like the food at Pacific Dining Car at Princeton and Wilshire in Santa Monica. Open 24/7. Breakfast is also okay at either Norm's (if you don't mind chain fare) on Pico Blvd. just east of Sepulveda a couple of blocks (also open 24/7) and at Izzy's Deli in Santa Monica (basically 15th St. and Wilshire) also open 24/7 - and will do in a pinch.

    Also, depending on how far east you live in the WLA area there are also Canter's and Du-Par's both very close to each other and both open 24/7 as well.

    Other than those 24/7 places the earliest opening breakfast places are Pepy's Galley and Joni's in the Marina and they both open at 6AM.

    1. Not a breakfast place per se, but the Donut King on Pico and Lincoln in Santa Monica opens at 5:00 and serves up some nice breakfast sandwiches, especially the croissant ones. Coffee is decent as well. And it is a donut shop. I really like the chocolate chip bar. Also a decent fritter.

      1. Thanks Servorg. WhatIwaslookingfor.

        1. On my way to work, I see Teddy's at Pico & Bundy [opens 5:30AM … and a new IHOP off Bundy and Santa Monica [24 hours].

          I've tried neither.

          And, a place I've been many times, Western Bagel on Santa Monica around Barrington. Bagels and bagel sandwiches. Opens around 5AM. Check.
