2nd Installment of the Best thing I Ever Ate List… “Mom’s French Toast at the Griddle”

When I first moved to Los Angeles I always wondered what the crowd of people were doing standing outside (of what looked like nothing) at 7916 Sunset blvd. I have now come to realize there is a reason for this insanity.

The Griddle Cafe has been a long-standing staple in Los Angeles and is known for the perfect way to cure a hangover. Although ….you may to have to wait (sometimes 45mins on weekends) it’s well worth it! From Egg Dishes to Pancakes I really don’t think you can go wrong here. Not to mention.. the coffee, which is strong and good! Although, NOTHING and I mean NOTHING can compare to The Griddle’s French toast!  In one word it is ORGASMIC. Named “Mom French Toast” is two fluffy, huge, white pieces of bread dipped in cinnamon egg batter and grilled to perfection. They are then dusted with icing sugar and a dollop of butter. Don’t ask me what they do… but there is definitely magic going on in that recipe.

The space is tiny, the crowd is loud, and the wait is long, but it is all worth it because you will never leave hungry or dissatisfied… especially if you get the french toast!!
