Break a Breakfast Rut: 10 Restaurants to Wake Up Your Morning Meal

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Though it might be healthier (and often cheaper) to whip up eggs or pancakes at home, sometimes you just want to roll out of bed and get some delectable breakfast grub that was prepped and flipped by somebody else. No need to settle for anything mediocre; Los Angeles is chock-full of fab spots for a great morning meal.

We'd like to gently suggest you get out of your breakfast rut and try one of these 10 delish restaurants we got acquainted with recently at LA Weekly's Pancake Breakfast event. From to-die-for blueberry ricotta pancakes to home made pop tarts to a plate of chilaquiles to Korean pancakes (any time of day!), here are a few places where you can wake up to great tastes.
