That feeling. That terrible head throbbing feeling of a great night on the town can make you want to kill yourself the morning after. In the case that you over did it at the bar you might need to over do it at breakfast in order to kill your burgeoning hangover. And I’ve got just the places to help you do that.
The Griddle Cafe
If a big huge plate of grease is what the doctor ordered then you’ll be coming to the right place. I have never figured it out, but I am pretty sure that the creator of The Griddle might have been in a delusion and thought he was feeding giants. The breakfasts are just that big.
I’ve got one word for you: Hangover. Not what you’re suffering through, but the name of their breakfast. It’s 3 eggs any style, boudin blanc sausage, roasted tomato, country potatoes, baguette, bloody mary & coffee. Oh, and if one bloody mary isn’t going to do the trick, they serve bottomless bloody marys, screwdrivers, mimosas or champagne for $15. You can’t beat that!
. . . is where I go when it’s been the sort of long night where dawn happens and I am outside wearing shades. It’s outdoors and has all these awesome trees surrounding it and growing through the tables like you’re eating with the Swiss Family Robinson. Plus the breakfasts are amazing. Try the eggs benedict and you won’t be sorry.
This is where you come when you wake up on a sidewalk without your shoes or your phone and you need to eat. In fact, I am pretty sure they will serve anyone that can pay. I mean, the place is sort of divey, but the breakfasts are first rate in the greasy spoon department. Plus, no one there will look at you funny for being barefoot and looking beat, they’re probably in worse shape.
- Joe’s Restaurant
Hands down, this place has got the best brunch in Los Angeles. The food is superb and the service is stellar. Just show up with your shades on and ask to be seated on the patio so you can smoke and scowl at all the other idiots there nursing their hangovers. Everything on the menu is recommended, but remember, if you get there past 2 p.m. prepare to hear that they’ve run out of a lot of menu items. The food is just that good.
