For this brunch spotlight, we have chosen a longtime favorite of ours in Hollywood: Square One Dining, which has the feel of an old-fashioned diner (but with amazing food instead of nasty food). Your hangover has met its match here with the fresh-squeezed orange juice and the breakfast sandwich. We are also huge fans of the coffee (from Intelligentsia!), the insane bacon, and the brioche French toast with vanilla whipped cream, which comes with topping options according to what’s in season. The fruit salad is also based on what’s seasonal, so don’t expect your typical bland grape-and-cantaloupe mixture. But honestly, you could blindly point at something on the menu to order, and it would be good. All the food here is fresh, local, and absolutely delicious, and the prices are perfectly reasonable. Another lovely thing about Square One is that if you order coffee, lemonade or tea, the refills are free, and really no one can complain about free refills. If you want some fresh air, we recommend sitting on the patio (and trying to ignore the huge Scientology building across the way). The only downside here is the wait, but with your first bite of brioche French toast, all negative sentiments will instantly vanish into thin air.

Great little spot overshadowed but the Scientology center. Parking is tough to find but there are side streets with two hour limits. There wasn't a line so I was seated immediately, and that's incredible considering it was Sunday. Outdoor seating worked well on a cloudy day since they have a few heat lamps ready.
I ordered the oatmeal with candied pecans and maple syrup - delicious! The latte with almond milk wasn't to my liking unfortunately. A single egg and a pork sausage patty on the side completed a well constructed breakfast. Highly recommended.
