Dear readers, I am so late in getting this post to you.
And we ate.
But you might not know about Aroma. And you should. It’s adorable, makes a great omelet, and has zillions of outdoor tables around every turn.
And if you sat at one of said tables, you’d be able to listen in on the Hollywood gossip going on all around you. Seriously, lots of iPads and secret meetings. Anywhere the people watching rivals the level of the food is my kind of place.
And you might not know about The Griddle. And you should know about The Griddle. If you can swing it, head over for breakfast on a weekday. If you can only get there on a weekend, get in line, and wait anyway. Oh the pancakes. Oh, the pancakes! Looking at that picture makes me want to cry. I ordered Mounds pancakes (coconut and chocolate chips) and gobbled through as much of this massive stack as I could before boarding my plane in a carb-induced coma. These still haunt my dreams.
You might not know about Yummy Cupcakes. That I know of, they haven’t been on cupcake wars, and their storefront is unassuming. But they have Queen Cupcakes official “best in LA” stamp of approval, which is all I need. This is some crazy chocolate-covered-pretzel concoction. My excuse to go back soon is that they were sold out of red velvet 1/2 and 1/2 (1/2 cream cheese frosting, 1/2 chocolate) by the time we got there.
And, finally, you might not know about Lemonade. This little spot is about to open and debut a breakfast menu in LAX. Lucky you, if you depart from Terminal 5. Lemonade has tons of salad and sandwich options. One bite into my avocado and I knew I wasn’t in
Kansas DC anymore. Don’t go without getting a huge cup of, what else, lemonade.
