Lauded by media sources as diverse as Men’s Health and the food blog Gourmet Pig, The Griddle Café in Los Angeles boasts a menu extensive enough to satisfy the health-conscious and chocoholics alike. For instance, Men’s Health once featured a recipe for the café’s pumpkin pancakes in an article extolling pumpkin’s nutritional virtues, while Gourmet Pig’s 2008 review focused on The Griddle Café’s chocolate-infused French toast dish, the “Devil’s Daydream.” Some of the diner’s more classic breakfast options include blueberry pancakes, strawberry-and-cream waffles, and classic French toast.
For those seeking innovative savory dishes, The Griddle Café serves up a delightful twist on the classic eggs Benedict, the “Poached y Papas” Benedict, which layers the familiar poached eggs, ham, and hollandaise sauce atop potato skins instead of English muffins. In addition to the many varieties of French toast, pancakes, and waffles on the breakfast menu, the restaurant offers several omelet options, a huevos rancheros dish that features chicken tequila sausage, and scrambles ranging from the “Gone Shrimping” to the “Fiesta.”
The Griddle Café is also open for lunch all day long during its normal business hours, which run from 7 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday and 8 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
