There’s a New Coffee and Breakfast Sandwich Situation Happening in Hollywood

It has a hilarious name: Homeward Ground

Studio types, college kids, and Hollywood locals have a new place to flock before starting the daily grind, and it’s called Homeward Ground. No, the place is not a none-too-subtle homage to 1993’s classic family flick about three animals on a perilous journey to be reunited with their human owners. It’s basically just a coffee shop, but with lounge seating, breakfast sandwiches, and free parking.

Homeward Ground occupies some street-level space inside the greater Emerson College Los Angeles campus building in Hollywood, right behind the big funky staircase. It’s a compact operation with big, plush couches and chairs, deep green hues, and faux wood flooring. Tall windows let in plenty of light, and there’s a bookshelf in the back to complete the 1950s library appeal.

The Hollywood breakfast newcomer is the brainchild of none other than George Abou-Daoud, who operates a ton of restaurants in and around that neighborhood. There’s Farida, Delancey, and Bowery, to name a few, but Homeward Ground marks Abou-Daoud’s first foray into the grab-and-go coffee and breakfast side of things. Look for food that plays to the campus crowd, with sub-$7 egg sandwiches, cappuccinos, smoothies, and more. A full menu is below.

Homeward Ground is now open in Hollywood, keeping daily hours from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m., though the breakfast menu only runs to 2 p.m. After that it’s mostly grab-and-go stuff to start, and there’s free parking down in the garage off Gordon. The move to add a new casual restaurant location is likely a smart one for Abou-Daoud, as the whole area is becoming overrun with new media names and eateries that cater to them, from Sugarfish to Division 3 to corner dim sum spot iXLB Eats.
