LA Weekly's Description

On a Sunday morning, the Griddle is really loud: clattering pans, a hundred shouted conversations, amplified rock & roll bouncing off the high ceilings. Actors from what seem like half the shows on Fox and the WB are rubbing sleep out of their eyes. And the woman next to you at the counter is eating a stack of berry pancakes so large that it looks like a movie prop, like three large pizzas piled on top of one another and smothered in powdered sugar. The enormous pancakes are available blanketed in cinnamon streusel, or spiked with Kahlua and Baileys, or smothered under an improbable mass of whipped cream and crumbled Oreos. They are not the best pancakes in Los Angeles, but they are good enough.

    The go-to pancake joint in LA. These flapjacks are huge and come in many variations from blueberry to oreo-filled!

  • The Expendables 2 on 06/29/10

    Look for explosive pancakes the size of your head! Brought to you by THE EXPENDABLES opening August 13!

    Its not on the menu, but you can order just one pancake (opposed to the traditional three). You will thank me later.

  • Humble Co. on 01/10/10

    Go to The Griddle and ask for the red velvet pancakes and if your lucky they'll have em !
