Description

LA Weekly's Description

It is hard to go wrong with bacon, but Square One, a cheerful, brightly painted breakfast place in the L. Ron Hubbard district of East Hollywood, may have the city's best: Nueske's bacon, the well-regarded artisanal product from northern Wisconsin, sliced thick, laid on a rack and slow-roasted until it becomes crisp but pliable, sweet and deeply smoky, exploding under your teeth into gushers of fragrant juice. Still, even without the bacon, Square One is a pretty good place - epochal breakfasts, big salads for lunch made with roasted beets or house-cured salmon, pressed ham-and-cheese sandwiches, organic grits, and fragile chocolate-chip cookies. The chefs shop the same way you do, or at least the way you would like to think that you would if your life were devoted to cooking breakfast rather than to such unimportant concerns as work, television and sex.

    Without a doubt the best breakfast place in the world. Amazing pancakes with hot toppings. Also try the eggs/salmon/hashbrown thing. Try to get a seat by the window and have a fresh muffin while gazing at the Scientologists walking back and forth on the other side of the street.

    There's nothing more reassuring than eating brunch in the shadow of the Scientology Center.

    Bourbon Peacan French Toast. Mind-blowingly good.

    This one of our favorite little cafes that we love to hit on the weekend.
