Café Gratitude

639 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles

This plant-based restaurant popularity led to three separate Café Gratitude locations across Southern California, including Larchmont, Venice and Newport Beach. The menu items sound like declarations — the I Am Content spinach quiche, I Am Vivid acai bowl, and I Am Lively Belgian oat waffle and berries as examples. As much as customers are drawn to the breakfast items, the fresh juices, teas, tonics, and smoothies with all manner of healthy ingredients are go-to’s for those looking for a great start to the day. Café Gratitude has earned its name. Café Gratitude


The Front Yard

4222 Vineland Ave, North Hollywood

This charming restaurant located within the complex of The Garland Hotel has become a neighborhood hotspot for dining, especially when it comes to brunch. Oh, there’s daily breakfast, too. Think Nutella stuffed French toast, house-made granola, or a NoHo omelet with pecan-smoked bacon. As for brunch, that’s an event. Hot chicken biscuits, short rib hash, pastrami Benny… Just make sure to save room for the cinnamon cardamon beignets. Love the patio with its fireplace and fountain? Come back again for lunch, dinner, and cocktails. The Front Yard



8401 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood

The sign of a great breakfast place: a line of customers waiting for a table. Such is the case for many breakfast spots on this list, including Hugo’s, with its locations in Studio City and West Hollywood. What the folks in line are clamoring for? Chilaquiles, Pasta Mama, Brisket Hash Benedict… The morning menu is extensive and has many healthy options (think subbing in tofu for eggs). Grab a seat on the patio of either venue, order a coffee and juice, then wait for a slice of heaven to be delivered to the table. Check out their lunch and dinner offerings, too. Hugo’s



14120 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks

A lot of folks may proclaim their local Jinky’s was the original and the best. Let’s not fight about deliciousness. Get thee to one of Jinky’s now six locations throughout the Los Angeles area and order up some breakfast. Craving a quinoa & egg bowl, lox Benedict breakfast, or chicken & waffles? Yep, the menu has these offerings and a plethora of others that will call for making breakfast at this neighborhood-friendly restaurant a weekly, if not daily, ritual. Jinky’s


The Original Pantry Café

877 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles

This DTLA breakfast joint has been drawing lines of fans since 1924. Open 24 hours a day, The Original Pantry Café offers breakfast until 1pm. There are six items on the specials, including stick-to-your-ribs fare like biscuits & gravy, sausage, two eggs and potatoes. Other menu sections include omelets, breakfast steaks & chops, pantry’s famous pancakes and more. For those wondering how good this place is — 101 years of diners can’t be wrong.
