    There's a number of benedicts, like the Ode to Butterfield's, which is a flat-iron steak with poached eggs and a cabernet hollandaise. The house-made turkey sausage works well in the frittata. Read more

    A regular here because the staff is always attentive and kind and the food is always delicious AND pretty. Impress yo friends or hang out at the bar with a book and a french press on Sunday mornings!

    The avocado toast and blueberry ricotta fluffy pancakes are so good that we forgot all about the slow service and bad coffee 😁 one of the best pancakes ever ❤️

    Crab cake Benedict and steak and eggs were AMAZING. Slightly pricey but it's worth it as the portions are big, healthy and filling 😍. Perfect for breakfast/brunch.

    The egg dishes are to die for, from wild mushroom frittatas to braised pork benedicts, but many of the folks who pack in on weekends opt for the sweet main attraction: ricotta blueberry pancakes. Read more

    My go-to place for brunch in LA. If there is a wait, take a stroll down to MILK (also on Beverly) grab a snack and come back. I just wish they'd bring back the brulee'd grapefruit!

    Order the house cured salmon eggs Benedict on whole grain instead of the typical English muffin. Also, grilled baby octopus with citrus, spinach and splashed with pickled watermelon dressing AWESOME

    Simple, well-executed food is the draw for locals at this restaurant. Come here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner with your family for fare that is made from the best ingredients around. Try the panini!

    Had the lamb burger with feta, and the butter lettuce salad with blue cheese and bacon. Very attentive service, and the food was delicious with generous portion sizes. Love this place.

    Food was excellent as always and the service was great as well. I used to frequent this spot when I lived nearby, it had been two months, the portions were noticeably smaller and prices went up.

    The food is delicious. Not I am just being nice delicious but by any standards delicious. The service is on par with 5 star restaurants. Top it off, Erykah Badu playing on speakers. HEAVEN!

    BLD: breakfast, lunch and dinner! Their breakfast is a winner and they serve it until 3pm! FYI, tweet @bldchefd on thursdays with a menu suggestion for a chance to win a free dinner for 2.

    Fried egg breakfast sammy was incredible. It sounds simple compared to some other options but it was extremely well executed with some of the best bacon of my life.

    Get the egg sandwich. Not a light lunch, but very tasty. The smoke bacon combine with gruyere cheese and egg sandwiched between two sour dough is delicious.

    First ask for TJs section. Best server here. Then - Order their specialty mint greyhound- but with gin instead of vodka like a true greyhound. Improves the taste & enjoyability.

    You haven’t tasted mac ’n‘ cheese until you’ve sampled BLD’s smoky Cajun version made with Big John’s cheddar—so hot and gooey, still bubbling when it hits the table.

    All of the benedicts are wonderful. Not a huge fan of the house-cured smoked salmon (not lox, more like thick-cut, cooked then smoked) or the lox (too slimey).

    Blueberry ricotta pancakes that will bring you one step closer to heaven as well as an out-of-this-world fried egg sandwich. Read more

    I must always get the bbq tofu! Not usually a tofu fan but it's amazing here. A great choice for vegetarians and carnivores alike.

    First. Make a reservation or you will wait an hour to sit. Second, order a granny Mary. Third, order blue berry pancakes. Then you will have a wonderful day.

    Cream cheese french toast is really good but it should go under the desserts category. Blueberry pancakes are good too.

    The Blueberry pancakes are delicious, but it's too much for one person. You can order just one Blueberry pancake off-menu.
