Fave omelets in LA and why?

Mine are at Joan's on Third (, because they're tender and rich, but never overcooked, and the fillings are simple, elegant and very tasty. Also, according to Alex Guarnaschelli, they add water instead of milk or cream to achieve the delightful fluffy texture (

I write more about them here ( What are your favorites?

  1. Without a doubt, Joan's on 3rd.

    I eat one of their egg white omelets at least once a week.

    1. I don't know if it's my favorite, not sure I have a favorite, but Jitlada's Kua Kling omelet with choice of meat is fantastic, packed with flavor and extra spicy!

      1. re: TheOffalo

        Whoa, that sounds great. Forget they even had a savory omelet variation. Terrific.

      2. It's been a while but Le Petit Beaujolais in Eagle Rock. Their omelets are never overcooked, always tender and fluffy.

        1. Fluffy & thin at Uncle Bill's in Manhattan Beach.
          The ingredients are not mixed into the egg - they are separate inside. Everything is melted well also.

          1. I salute Market City Caffe in Burbank because they always get my "Egg Yolks Only" request right.

            The ONE (and definitely last) time I ate at Wild Carvery, they screwed it up. I said, "Egg yolks only," and they repeated it back to me as "Egg whites only." I lost my temper and said, "No, it's the egg whites that I'm allergic to."

            They still brought me an egg white omelet. I will NEVER return.
