Come hungry! This delicious breakfast spot is the Chocolate Factory to Willy Wonka breakfast lovers - especially for those who love pancakes (hint hint)!
Great breakfast and brunch spot! The wait gets long the later you come. The portions are huge here! They have many different flavors of oversized pancakes!
The pancakes are out of control here. Crazy variety and the execution is top notch. I wouldn't order anything else. The big drawback here is that it's always so crowded! Come early to avoid the brunch rush.
Worth the wait – Love, love this place. Ok there's going to be a wait, but its worth it and I have liked everything I try. Share the pancakes! They're massive and amazing.
Good Food – thats what makes this place. especially for breakfast food.
L.A.'s Biggest Pancakes – That is one thing you wont forget when you leave this place. How enormous and stacked of pancakes your plate was. Very delcious. I would definately recommend this place to everyone!
Over-Rated – Waited 45 minutes to eat breakfast this morning there, only to be shoved like sardines into this dumpy, seedy, dive-bar-looking breakfast place. The coffee was so disgusting and that's my first criteria in making a good breakfast place. The food was very average. After breakfast, we stayed chatting in our booth (i figure we waited 45 minutes--we earned it!) and were asked to hurry it up since the line outside was at an hour and a half wait now. The food was pathetically average, and this place is all hype and no substance.
Mmmmmmm...Creme de la creme – I do these random food combination searches on the internet. One day I thought about cheesecake french toast. The first few poped up, and one is about cheesecake french toast. I was sorta stunned to see it. It was a dish at "Griddle Cafe" in west hollywood. I read online that this place is quite a wait, but I thought it was well worth it! I end up waiting fifteen minutes, 'cause it was only me. I order the "Creme de la creme" which read to me as the cheesecake french I read about. A few minutes later, I get this big plate of cream covered french toast, sprinkled with cinnamon. It wasn't what I expected, but it was delicious! Totally worth coming! The french toast was layered under a scrumptious topping of cheesecake cream (which was probably store bought cheesecake filing), then coated in graham cracker crumbs, and dusted with cinnamon on top. I really would love some right now. But this dish is very sugary. By the end I couldn't finish it. I felt like I was getting diabetes. But this was unique and the best french toast combination I've had in a long time so I needed to finish. All in all, I thought eating here was well worth it. The portion was great, the quality pretty good, and the service was good. I would definitely eat here in many days to come, had I lived in LA.
Crème de la Crème overload… – Oh my, best go here when you have a hangover or starving for great breakfast at 3pm! Because it’s served all day.
From A-list celebs, this is the best place to see who’s who in Hollywood. Just remember the wait will kill you! This local hang out is very popular for the starving and craving oversize pancakes. Just remember to share.
Great Coffee – My wife's office was closed for Rosh Hoshana, so I played hooky and we went to breakfast. I'd read the hype about the Griddle so we tried it out. Wow! Though it was crowded, we were immediately seated. We ordered coffee and they brought us a pot of coffee that would put Starbucks to shame. We both ordered omelets, but our server convinced us to share a single pancake. When the food came, the pancake was the size of the entire plate. The omelets were perfectly made with big chunks of chicken in mine and whole shrimps in hers. I had fresh fruit, which was wonderful and I tasted her potatoes, which were good. Needless to say, we couldn't finish anything. Not a good place for children, as we watched a young boy try to eat his chocolate chip pancakes. He couldn't even put a dent in them. The next time I'm off during the week I'll definitely give this place another try.
