Plan Your Trip to LA Around These 11 Hotel Breakfasts

You've heard about the traffic, so at least have a nice place to eat when you wake up.

Commissary, Koreatown

Let's face it: Hotel breakfasts err on two extremes. They're either free and provide a baseline of sustenance, or they're expensive for what they are.

If you're not looking to leave the hotel to get breakfast, however, you probably want to stay somewhere with a decent meal or a great view, and in some cases, both. So if you're entertaining guests from out of town or you're looking to stay in L.A., duck the traffic and try breakfast at one of these spots.

933 S Broadway
Los Angeles, CA 90015
(213) 623-3233
Visit Website

A tranquil spot to get breakfast in Downtown, The Ace Hotel offers a sage scrambled breakfast or moroccan scramble to start the day. Bring the shades and the black jeans, because you're going to want to dress the part.

2. Caulfield's

Copy Link
9360 Wilshire Blvd
Beverly Hills, CA 90212
(310) 388-6860
Visit Website

Caulfield's swanky, wood-adorned dining room and bar at the Sixty puts out a brief breakfast program aside from the compulsory granola, smoothies and juices. The menu includes a portobello eggs benedict with sauteed kale and tomato remoulade to sustain you for those long walks on Rodeo Drive.

3. Château Marmont

Copy Link
8221 W Sunset Blvd
West Hollywood, CA 90046
(323) 656-1010
Visit Website

Yes, the Chateau Marmont is already famous for Bar Marmont, but breakfast on the patio isn't much to sneeze at, either. In addition to a menu of cold pressed juices, the restaurant at Chateau Marmont has a $22 breakfast burrito if you're feeling like a hungry socialite in the property's impeccably manicured garden.

4. Coast

1 Pico Blvd
Santa Monica, CA 90405
(310) 587-1707
Visit Website

If you're looking to impress just about anyone from out of town, you'll put them up at Shutters on the Beach, the iconic Santa Monica hotel with a distinctly Hampton-esque vibe. The beachfront cafe, Coast, has a standard selection of griddled carbs and proteins. What you're really here for, though, is the view of the Pacific Ocean.

5. COMMISSARY

Copy Link
3515 Wilshire Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90010
(213) 368-3030
Visit Website

Atop the Line Hotel sits Commissary, Roy Choi's gorgeous greenhouse-like space serving up all manner of inventive vegetable dishes and sustainable proteins. It might be the most diet-friendly spot in Choi's empire of L.A. restaurants and it certainly features nuanced cooking executed by executive chef Diego Echavarria and his staff.

6. FIG Santa Monica

101 Wilshire Blvd
Santa Monica, CA 90401
(310) 576-7777
Visit Website

Santa Monica's FIG at the Fairmont Hotel offers a poolside breakfast that has a menu with selections for the pickiest of eaters. If you're looking to eat more dressed up, the dining room adjacent the pool is inviting without being too casual.

7. Polo Lounge

Copy Link
9641 Sunset Blvd
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
(310) 887-2777
Visit Website

The Polo Lounge is an iconic breakfast spot for Hollywood's well-heeled movers and shakers, and though individual breakfast selections cost about as much as enough breakfast burritos for a family of four, you'll be tucking into a bit of L.A. history in a space that seemingly transcends time.

8. Restaurant at the dusit D2 Hotel Constance Pasadena

Copy Link
928 E Colorado Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91106
(626) 898-7900
Visit Website

The dusitD2 Constance Pasadena is another glitzy option in Pasadena. The breakfast menu features a bananas foster french toast in a hypermodern Asian-inspired dining room a stone's throw from Caltech.

9. The Hart + The Hunter

Copy Link
7950 Melrose Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90046
(323) 424-3055
Visit Website

The Hart + the Hunter is a no-brainer that doubles as one of the better restaurants in an L.A. even if it were a standalone. With the impending return of former chef Kris Tominaga as executive chef for the Paligroup, you can look forward to excellent fare inside a bright, inviting and hip space at the Palihotel Melrose.

10. The Terrace

Copy Link
1401 S Oak Knoll Ave
Pasadena, CA 91106
(626) 585-6218
Visit Website

The massive, stately Langham is situated in the heart of affluent San Marino. Afternoon tea is a dressy affair and breakfast at The Terrace, while pricey, is an opportunity to dress smart and soak in the impeccable environs.

11. Tres by José Andrés

Copy Link
465 S LA Cienega Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90048
(310) 247-0400
Visit Website

This is not your ordinary hotel breakfast — or ordinary hotel restaurant, for that matter. A sous-vide egg is the star of the show here, and eggs benedict feature slivers of serrano ham. The dining room is, like the SLS, shockingly forward, with a sharp white marble mini-banquettes and white mini-chandeliers contrasting with the more traditional armchair circling tables off to the side.
