"Strawberries and Cream Waffle~Covered with fresh strawberries and our brown sugar sour cream topping...sprinkled with powdered sugar."
The Griddle Cafe
Making good breakfast food is harder than it looks. The Griddle Cafe offers breakfast all day long, as with a lunch menu. I ordered the strawberries and cream waffle, seen above. The buttermilk waffle was perfect and sweet, plenty to eat without any sides. The strawberries were fresh, which is a pet peeve of mine at those breakfast chain diners. Super size stacks of pancakes are on the menu too, so be extra hungry or prepared to take home a box if you don't finish. The "BLUESberry" pancakes look to be a popular selection.
Tip: Bring a friend and share one stack of pancakes and get a side like eggs.
If you happen to be in Los Angeles or a tourist in the city this spot hits the spot. Over the past six years I have been twice and really enjoyed it each time. There has been a line each time of about twenty minutes, so arrive before you are starving and get your name on the list inside the cafe.
The Griddle Cafe is located 7916 Sunset Blvd.,
Hollywood, CA 90046
(on the corner of Sunset and Fairfax)
The cafe closes at 4:00 P.M.
