That's at least according to Details magazine's March issue which hits stands this week. In a list of top breakfast spots in large cities around the country, they give major kudos to Square One Dining, which also happens to be a favorite of LAist's.

This spare storefront with apricot-colored walls is where Robert Lee and Hayden Ramsey, both alums of top-notch kitchens, lavish the same meticulous attention on the elements of breakfast that they once did on elaborate sauces. The result: morning standards that are emphatically elevated but not gussied up. Muffins and pecan coffee cake arrive at the table warm from the oven. Fruit salad is a farmers’ market in a bowl. Be warned that your thick-sliced, slow-roasted Nueske’s bacon could upstage the omelet you order it with—and these are some damn good omelets. [Details]
