Alcove (1929 Hillhurst)(Los Feliz)(Average/Expensive). I know some people complain about the ordering process (i.e., you wait in a long, long line, order at the counter, get your beverages and a number for your food order, find seats in various patios, and wait for someone to bring your food); but I'm used to it and am happy to deal so long as I get my yummy pastries. Food is pretty good here too (esp. the onion rings), but it's really all about the tarts, cupcakes and other baked treats for me! I think they are starting to do dinners too. Recommendations: Cupcakes (big and fluffy, with whipped buttercream frosting and sprinkled with pastel confectioner's sugar), fruit tarts, moon pies.
Roscoe's Chicken & Waffles (
Square One (
Griddle Café (7916 Sunset Blvd)(WeHo)(Average). This place is always bustling and packed! It must be because of the gi-normous pancakes (banana and chocolate chip are my favorites, but they have a myriad of flavors)! They also have yummy chiles and burgers. There's always a line and it's a first come-first serve policy. Some people get sort of cranky and start yelling at the person with the wait-list – don't do that! Be nice and polite and they'll get to you. Random tip – I would skip their fruit sides/plate. It's not that good. Stick with the carbs and protein here.
