Breakfast: Frosted Flake and Strawberry Hotcakes at Griddle Cafe
Start your day off with the Hear Me Roar: massive, fluffy hotcakes stuffed with Frosted Flakes and topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries, or choose from Griddle Cafe's 20 other decadent flapjack options -- no really, some of them are stuffed with Oreo's and Kahlua.
Brunch: Ricotta and Blueberry Pancakes at Little Dom's
At Little Dom's, chow down on a stack of ricotta cheese and blueberry pancakes, served light and fluffy every day until 3:00 p.m.
Lunch: Fried Chicken and Pancakes at Slater's 50/50
Chicken and waffles have long been a staple of Angelenos who refuse to categorize breakfast foods as such, but now you can pair another breakfast favorite with fried chicken: pancakes. At Slater's 50/50, order the syrup-smothered stack of three buttermilk pancakes with fried chicken plus a fried egg. Top it off with bacon-infused gravy and strips of bacon ... because National Pancake Day only comes once a year, and this place stays open until 1:00 a.m.
