Best breakfast in Los Angeles

You might think breakfast in Los Angeles is all chai lattes and chia bowls but despite its reputation as America’s most health-conscious city, LA is home to excellent classic morning menus and carb-loaded plates.

Whether you’re looking to start your day with a pile of pancakes, fancy French dishes or just some good ‘ole American home cooking, we’ve pulled together the best breakfast places in Los Angeles.

Our guide to the best breakfast in Los Angeles includes:

  • The Original Pantry Cafe
  • Clementine
  • Eggslut
  • Otus Thai Kitchen
  • Huckleberry
  • And more!


Grab your Californian brekkie at this Venice Beach restaurant where you can stack up plates of delicious home cooking. There’s plenty to pick from including prosciutto crispy eggs, duck confit with potato hash, smoked salmon and goats cheese, and lemon ricotta pancakes. Or if you’re feeling fancy, opt for half a dozen oysters to slurp in the sunshine.

Otus Thai Kitchen

For something a bit different, start your morning at Otus Thai Kitchen, one of West Hollywood’s best kept breakfast secrets. The menu features a selection of typical American dishes plus a tasty classic Thai menu. So play your cards right and get stuck into the likes of banana flambe pancakes, shitake mushroom breakfast toast, sticky rice and garlic chicken wings.

French restaurant République is a favorite among critics and not just for the fresh Mediterranean dinner menu. Available all day, the breakfast selection has locals queuing at the door with everything from smoked salmon tartine to classic Croque madame. And if the food isn’t tempting enough, you’ll want to see République’s historic home, first built in 1928 by Charlie Chaplin.

Pann’s Restaurant

This family-run Greek diner is as famous for its chicken and waffles as much as its 50s coffee shop interiors. Pann’s Restaurant has built a crowd of regulars who return again and again for a filling start to their day including three egg omelets, hot syrup waffles and a ‘Rena’s Favorite’, a feast of pancakes, Texas toast and meat selection.

The Original Pantry Cafe

For a blast from Los Angeles’ past, step inside The Original Pantry Cafe for a ginormous breakfast to start your day. Carb up with giant slabs of sourdough toast, family size pancakes, and the extra crispy fries. Early risers or late-night partiers can tuck in from 4AM - just remember to bring your wallet to this cash-only local.

Mary & Robbs Westwood Cafe

Since 1977, this classic café has served unfussy breakfast to its diners. Nothing much changes at Mary & Robbs, including the staff who have been a part of the family for over 20 years. Expect top-notch french toast until 3PM, scrambles with tater tots, fried weekday combos and more.

Local Angelenos love this family-owned neighborhood bakery and café. Pick from two locations in Century City or Beverly Hills, both serving up homemade pastries, sandwiches, and a big ‘ole breakfast menu featuring all your favorites. If you’re in town over the weekend, don’t miss Clementine’s Saturday brunch serving up eggs benedict and their famous cinnamon rolls.

Opened by born and bred Santa Monicans, Huckleberry is an artisan bakery and café from the team behind the Rustic Canyon restaurant. Everything is made onsite from the brioche french toast to ‘Dad’s pancakes’, plus you can pick from daily specials such as a breakfast sandwich with meat from nearby Niman Ranch.

All Time

Sunny, stylish All Time is the café you want to be seen in. The patio is ‘grammable and the menu lives up to Instagram expectations. A breakfast burrito is where the magic happens but you can also grab a good-ass salad, fresh fruit granola, and breakfast quesadilla.


If you don’t mind queuing for your eggs then get in line at Eggslut. Located in Grand Central Market, bulging breakfast sandwiches are served all day, each - unsurprisingly - featuring Chef Alvin Cailan’s favorite ingredient, as well as a smattering of complimentary fillings including smoked bacon, Angus beef, honey mustard aioli, and potato puree.


Again, prepare to queue, but if a turmeric tonic is calling to you, head to Los Angeles’ hip hotspot Sqirl. The famous ricotta toast and pesto rice bowls really are worth the wait, as is the selection of caffeine-free coffees. If you’re not fussed about dining in, call ahead to order takeout and beat the queues.
