The Sycamore Kitchen

Copy Link

The $10 Scrambled egg and chorizo sandwich, with melted Swiss cheese and caramelized onions will make you forget everything that happened last night.

Casa Vega

Copy Link

The Machca con Huevo, a relatively new dish on the menu, combines shredded beef, salsa, eggs and tortillas. The shredded beef is stewed in a savory sauce with just the right amount of fat to soak up your sins.

Du-par's Restaurant & Bakery

Copy Link

Du-par's serves its pancakes with melted butter - an entire bowl of melted butter. Allow us to recommend bacon on the side.

UMAMIcatessen

Copy Link

The PIGG breakfast sandwich from Chris Cosentino is not something you want to eat when you're still drunk. It's messy. But the combination of pig ear bacon and sausage patty, along with the strange sounding maple-poached egg is just right for the empty hangover tummy.

Pa-Ord Noodle

Copy Link

Pa Ord is good any time of day, and for any meal, but it feels especially good after a long night of drinking. The broth will rehydrate while the herbs and garlic wake up your senses.

BLD Restaurant

Copy Link

There are a lot of hangover appropriate dishes at BLD - the massive blueberry pancakes, the crispy-crunchy egg sandwich - but the restaurant actually recommends the meaty Breakfast Hash for a cure. It's a crispy pile of potatoes and bacon topped with eggs and Hollandaise. Glorious, buttery, creamy Hollandaise!

Café Gratitude

Copy Link

It's called, "I am sustained." While eating this, you will regret everything you did the night before. After eating it, you might feel like a new person.

Freddy Smalls

Copy Link

The slow egg panzanella comes highly recommended at this spot, known for its greasy (but often tasty) bar food.

Pressed Juicery

Copy Link

No need to go on a full juice cleanse after one night of debauchery. Pressed Juicery's Citrus #4 has everything you need to feel better the morning after: aloe vera, cucumber, pineapple, lemon and coconut water.

Luca On Sunset

Copy Link

Luca on Sunset brews their own kombucha. On Saturday and Sunday mornings there's actually a line for the stuff.

The Hudson

Copy Link

You will drink to much in West Hollywood. You will pass out in your car, a la Lindsay Lohan. You will crawl to The Hudson to get a hangover burger.

Swingers

Copy Link

Anything off the breakfast menu will do, though the Huevos Rancheros is especially popular. The best thing about this place is that you can look like you have not yet had a shower and the servers will still be nice to you.

M Cafe de Chaya

Copy Link

The Breakfast Enchilada is a quick and super healthy way to recover after one too many tequila shots.

In-N-Out Burger

Copy Link

Perhaps the most quintessentially LA hangover cure: In-N-Out's Animal Style burger.

There's a spicy, homey porridge served here that's popular among locals and food critics like Jonathan Gold.

Loteria Grill

Copy Link

The chiliquiles verdes at Loteria are soft, crunchy, savory, creamy and, topped with a fried egg, perfect for curing a hangover.

Stella Rossa

Copy Link

Stella Rossa isn't the place you want to go the next morning unless you can manage to brush your hair or just happen to look like a model right out of bed - everyone, including the chef, is gorgeous. In the event that you're feeling pretty enough, the croque madame will cure your headache.

Doña Rosa Bakery & Taqueria

Copy Link

The pozole is the star here. It's a hominy stew with meat and vegetables, and can be made spicy in case you need an extra kick.

Mas Malo

Copy Link

Malo's fried beef & pickle tacos are legendary, but don't forget that they're great while drinking, after drinking and the next morning, when you don't even want to think about drinking.

Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles

Copy Link

Is it the best chicken & waffles in town? Maybe not. But it's the only one served with an ice-cream-sized scoop of butter on top. Don't think too hard about it, just eat it.

Russell's

Copy Link

The most requested item on Saturday mornings at Russell's is the corned beef hash. They fry the potatoes in a mixture of butter and canola oil, which gives them perfectly brown edges while the insides stay soft and pillowy. The salty corned beef is slow-roasted separately and comes mixed in on the side.
