Located in West Hollywood, The Griddle Cafe (@thegriddlecafe) is sure to be something special if you're looking to have a memorable meal. While they have an attractive lunch menu of sandwiches, salads, and burgers, my four friends and I came here for one thing, and one thing only: the all-day breakfast menu. Notorious for their one-of-a-kind pancake creations, one can satisfy both breakfast AND dessert cravings with flapjacks and/or french toast covered in chocolate chips, butterscotch, Nutella, Oreos, or even punpkin pie filling.
The Griddle Cafe
Red Velvet PanCAKE ($8.95)- topped with swirls and swirls of cream cheese icing
An order of the pancakes by defaut comes in stacks of three, but you can order just one if you do so prefer. My advice? Order only as many as you can eat. We made the wise decision of splitting one, and it was more than enough!
Red Velvet PancCAKE ($8.95)- topped with swirls and swirls of cream cheese icing
The signature pancake here at The Griddle Cafe is the Red Velvet PanCAKE, and they weren't kidding when they said this was a panCAKE. The moist cake-like consistency of the batter combined with a cream cheese frosting makes it hard to remember that you're actually eating breakfast. These pancakes have become so popular that they now sell the dry pancake mix for people to make them at home! (Available here.)
Mom's French Toast ($11.95) - Egg-dipped bread griddle cooked to perfection, Mom's old fashion way! Topped with powdered sugar, and whipped butter
Recommended on the menu as a "must try at the Griddle Cafe", we figured there was no reason for us not to verify the claim. Like everything else here, the portions are more than generous for one person! The thick french toast slices are extremely filling, and in hindsight some fruit topping would've served a good balance. But if you're all for the simplicity of a homestyle slice of french toast, then this will do the job.
Poached Y Papas Benedict ($12.95)- A thick slice of tender baked ham and two poached eggs served atop seasoned potato skins, covered in Hollandaise Sauce
I don't think I can find one bad thing to say about the Poached Y Papas Benedict. The hollandaise sauce was so tasty, and I loved the nontraditional twist of potato skins instead of toast. Who doesn't like seasoned potato skins, am I right?
Not much left to say, other than EAT HERE!
