I’m a sucker for good pancakes so when I was traveling through Los Angeles on business a few weeks ago, I had knew I had to stop by the famous Griddle Café. This Hollywood staple off Sunset Boulevard is constantly packed with lines reaching around the block, but it’s oh so worth it.



It’s a spacious joint with tons of seating options, but you will wind up feeling a little cramped with the sheer amount of people stuffed in the place at any given time. Though they’re crowded, they still manage to greet you with a smile and get your food out fast.


I ordered two varieties of pancakes, including the mouthwatering Black Magic flapjacks, filled with crushed Oreos and topped with whipped cream. It was definitely a sugar rush, but one I did not regret one bit. The other order was their Scotch on the Rocks, a coconut, pecan, oat and butterscotch chip-filled pancake covered in powdered sugar. I asked them to leave the whip cream off this time.



These were easily the best pancakes I’ve had in a long time, if not ever, and that’s not an exaggeration. They have other offerings on the menu including French toast and eggs but, honestly, next time I’m back I’ll probably just try more of their plentiful flapjacks.


Great food, great atmosphere and a wonderful staff all earn this quirky little eatery an A+ from me.
