Millie's...because I'm obligated to (and I just so happen to love it)

3524 W Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90026
(323) 664-0404
Sun-Thu 7:30AM-3PM
Fri-Sat 7:30AM-4PM

Let you in on a little secret. Okay, you know how everyone goes to Millie's for food when they wake up from being hungover? And how the place is packed and you have to wait forever for seating? Well here's the simple secret why I have yet to wait for a spot at Millie's... go for breakfast. I mean breakfast breakfast hours not late breakfast... we're NOT talking 7:30am here, just get there before 10:30am and you probably won't have to even wait a minute. Reason being is hipsters are what pack this place out and usually they're still exhausted or wasted from the night before. I mean looking that good constantly takes a toll on people, especially younger people. There I said it.

On to the food. It's always a decent meal. Prices are not too shabby either considering the portions, the quality and the fact that there were three of us eating(and drinking) and the total was under $30.

I had Devil's Mess, which is three scrambled eggs with Cajun-spiced turkey sausage, cheddar cheese, sour cream, salsa and avocado. It's got solid flavor and the spiciness level spares the faint of heart while also allowing a perfect window for those(like me) who like hot sauce on their eggs.

The Salmon Benedict, which is a toasted English muffin with grilled salmon , sauteed spinach, two poached eggs with home made Hollandaise sauce. Now, you'd think that there'd be about the same amount of salmon as they would put on a bagel with cream cheese... but noooooooo, this was a fillet-o-salmon. Our friend struggled to eat half this thing, and of course we helped cause it was awesome and the sauce wasn't overpowering.

"The Usual" (with pancakes) which is basically what you see here was ordered by Celeste, who took the advice of the waitress on their french toast vs their pancakes and was very glad that she did... not too doughy, not too chewy and just heavy enough.

I could recommend every plate we got to you and to myself on my next trip. But, if you're into the healthy stuff you'll be quite pleased(the granola's supposed to be sensational), cause remember this is Silverlake, and their hipsters need to stay beautiful, so with places like Millie's around, they can have their cake and eat it too.

Parking can kind of be tough in the area, but, like I said just come like one or two hours before you'd think to normally come and you'll be fine... unless you're too delicate to take a short walk down the street. And even if you are, come on! Take tomorrow(that's Saturday) to celebrate the joy of not being at work (maybe then your walk will be a skip if you keep that in mind) !

Refills: Yup!
Prices: $4.75-9.95 for breakfast, and if you hit lunch there it's only $5.50-10.95

hahaha! Yes, well, it's not easy being cheesy. Noon breakfast anyone? What?? Someone's gotta do it. :p

Aaaawww...looking at those pictures makes me nostalgic...that's my old stomping ground. (As a twenty-some-year-old). Ever notice the tall red brick apartment building across from the grassy island with fountain on Griffith Park Blvd? We lived there before moving to Eagle Rock.

FYI: if you haven't already been, there's a really nice farmers' market kitty-corner to Millie's on Sunset x Griffith Park on Saturday mornings.

Noon breakfast is never a fact breakfast whenever is dandy with me. This is just one of those places that you love to go to and hope and pray there's never a reason to go away (like having to wait at it when you're starved). You and your man must join us sometime. You'd be like the first food blogger we've ever gotten to hang with for a meal.
