Kick off your next group outing with a hearty breakfast at the Griddle Cafe in Hollywood. The line might curve around the block, but your friends will soon agree that the diet-demolishing feast at one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles is worth the wait. Your jaws will drop when you see the size of the pancakes, about the diameter of a steering wheel, but it’s the flavor that keeps regulars smiling, with fillings and toppings that range from brown sugar-baked bananas to Frosted Flakes. Grab a fork and share an order of “Yellow Brick Road” pancakes, with butterscotch, caramel, and walnuts, topped with whipped cream and powdered sugar. Or get an early start on the evening with a stack of “Scotch On the Rocks,” an intoxicating mix of coconut, pecan, and butterscotch.  Keep an eye out for celebs, as the Griddle Cafe’s a favorite among industry types, or keep your shades on and get mistaken for one yourself. The portions are massive, but you’ve got all day to work it off–motivation enough to get moving.
