I like the idea of a family-run business, where there are too few of those left in Los Angeles. Pros: wide variety of menu items, interesting West-LA vibe because of proximity to Fox Studios and one overhears intriguing conversations about entertainment business, excellent biscuits, salads are good. Comfortable Setting. Wait staff is always nice. It's a very human place because... More

Nice neighborhood feel. The portions are huge, the food is good. It can get a little loud, especially when children are there. But the service is quick and there is an old fashioned diner feel to the place. Extensive menu too.

We love John O'Groats! Not only do we eat there on a regular basis but we've celebrated so many special event meals there over the years--birthday brunches; anniversary lunches; etc. The service is always first rate, Paul the owner could not be more professional, kind and on top of it! The food is delicious and the atmosphere is warm and... More

Had a slight wait for a table at around noon on a Saturday - probably 30 minutes maximum and it was definitely worth it. There's water and coffee available outside while you wait which is a lovely touch. The food was divine and the menu was really varied. The owner/host was very friendly and welcomed everyone personally. My husband left... More

Five of us called ahead and had no problem being seated at 1pm on a Saturday. We chose this place mainly due to advertisements of gluten-free and allergy-friendly fare. It very much reminded me of old school family diners, which it actually is. We were greeted and treated with kindness, politeness, and prompt service in spite of the place being... More

I like coming to John O'Groats -- three times during my most recent visit to LA -- because of the community feel, the pride of the owner, the slightly retro feel yet thoroughly modern menu. It's just a really comfortable, friendly, busy place that suits the surrounding neighborhood. They also have a great selection -- and I always have trouble... More

We visited John O'Groats for Sunday Brunch. I have to say, when you see people lined up out the door, it must be good, right? So we waited approx. half an hour for a table. Food was great. The biscuits are delicious. I loved the berry jam on the table. I would definitely go back again. Paul the owner gave... More

My favorite breakfast place in Los Angeles. Whatever you order--and it'll all be good--be sure to get a side of their bacon. Amazing!

John O'Groats is a bit of a step back in time, but in a good way. It has an old-timey diner feel, checkered tablecloths, un-even tables that rock, etc. We came for late breakfast on a Saturday. Be prepared for a wait, as we had a 10-minute wait around 1:00pm. I was thrilled to learn they have Gluten Free Pancakes... More
