O’ Groats – LA – 1 of my finest breakfasts EVER

Sweet Willie | Mar 9, 2004 05:44 PM

I was staying at an LAX hotel and really did not want the very mediocre food that even though free, is just sustenance, not a pleasure to eat. So I got in my car and drove. Took about 15 minutes but my search paid off. I spied John O’ Groats. What caught my eye are two things: #1 it was packed, #2 it mentioned seafood on the sign and I’m a sucker for seafood in my breakfast.

Being a lone diner I was happy to see a large 12-14 seat u-shaped counter area to sit at.

Menu was promising with one item that uses biscuit dough for a base to put some yummy items on top of being listed in the menu as “one of the top 100 things to eat in LA” . That was going to be my choice when the waitress passed me the specials list.

What immediately drew my attention:

QUOTE:
CHEF GUILLERMO’S “CREOLE SYTLE EGGS”
(featured in “In Touch Weekly Magazine”, this new addition combines poached eggs, Swiss cheese, and a fresh lamb patty on sour dough toast topped with our Creole Sauce. This sauce’s main ingredients are buttermilk, diced ham, green onions, and a pinch of cayenne pepper.)

I’ll cut to the chase. One of the best breakfasts I’ve had, EASY!

There were other items that caught my attention such as pumpkin spiced pancakes but I’m am SO GLAD I chose the above.

I do hope to go back and try that “top 100 thing to eat in LA” item. Sorry I can’t remember more detail on the item.
