Listen… there are two sides to Los Angeles. There’s the side that the transplants come to enjoy & take advantage of (which is fine) Then there’s LA, Like LA LA. The REAL LA. The LA that we natives grew up in. Today we’re talking about that LA & in honor of that. We’ve put together a list of the best places to get a Hood Breakfast in LA. Check them out below. 

Mama’s Chicken 

Listen. If you know about Mama’s then you know they have the some of the best-tasting links in the city. Those Chicken links? FIRE. Those Turkey links? FIRE. It’s been a staple in LA for more than 50 years & it had to make our list. When you go get those mild chicken sausage links & you won’t be disappointed.

M’Dears is a CLASSIC in Los Angeles. If you’re looking for a nice restaurant you can go sit down at M’dears is the place to be. I remember being a kid & going with my parents to get M’Dears almost every weekend. There are two locations, the one in Carson is heavily slept on. As for the food? Elegant Southern cuisine with a California twist. I’d recommend it to anybody.

Wii Jammin

Now for my natives … This might throw you for a twist but yes. Wi Jammin is a top spot for a nice breakfast in Los Angeles. If I’m being completely honest it’s one of the more slept-on spots in the city as far as breakfast is concerned. The Jammin Simple breakfast is a go-to for many people. The eggs are damn near perfect, nice big slices of bacon & their breakfast potatoes are slapping too.

The Griddle Cafe

 They used to be where Yashmiro is now, but they’ve since moved. Despite that, the taste is still the same. One of the best hood-style breakfast spots you’ll get when you come to LA. My favorite thing about them is they aren’t afraid to put some food on that plate. They have HUGE pancakes & are going to make sure you leave completely satisfied. Prepare to leave with leftovers. When you go you have to get the pancakes, the potatoes are really good as well.

Jacks Family Kitchen 

Jacks! Yet another Super good restaurant that is known for serving up an undeniably hood breakfast. It’s an infamous spot here in LA, From the pork chops and eggs to the salmon croquettes you can’t deny what Jacks is bringing to LA when we’re talking breakfast. 

Address: 3965 S Western Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90062

The Serving Spoon 

The serving spoon is a straight classic. Some love it & others hate it but the history here is rich. It’s been around for years. I’m sure it’s fed generations of Los Angelenos over the years. The food is amazing & they’re always playing some oldies to set the right environment. Amazing home style patatoes and even better cornbread.

Fabulous Burgers  

Welcome to Inglewood! Probably the only place on the list I’d say grab & go. Not for any other reason than its a basic burger joint. Yet & still don’t sleep cause they also have the best breakfast burritos on this list. I’d also recommend their hotlink special you won’t regret it.
