…I was fortunate enough to eat at the Griddle Cafe.

If you don’t know what the Griddle is, all you need to know is that they make a lot of food that looks like this:

In all seriousness, in the past we’ve waited well over an hour for a table. But last week we were invited to the “Holiday Media Breakfast for Dinner” sponsored by the Griddle itself and Java Monster.

The meal was definitely one of the best freebies I’ve ever received.

Not only were we treated to pancakes, French toast, and coffee-flavored energy drinks, but we were also given complimentary glasses of champagne. A few of them, actually. Okay, a lot of them.

We even got to try out their red velvet pancakes (which are also available as a mix on their website). Oh, man… it was the best, Jerry! The best!

Located on Sunset Boulevard, the Griddle is easily one of our favorite spots in the city, especially when people are in visiting from out of town. Our pitch is simple: “It’s worth the wait.” I don’t think we’ve taken anyone there who would disagree.

So the next time you find yourself hungry in Los Angeles, be sure to hit up the Griddle. You’ll be glad you did.
