about John O'Groats:
Residents of the Rancho Park neighborhood on LA's Westside love John O'Groats. Family-owned and homey in its decor, the restaurant is best known for its rich array of traditional and unusual breakfast items.
Favorite dishes include such classics as piping hot cakes, freshly made bacon and sausages, and Irish oatmeal. More adventurous delectables are the vegetarian hash and the potato pancakes with cilantro and other spices.
The restaurant welcomes stroller-bound families, offering large round tables, and space to store the four-wheeler, if necessary. High chairs are available.
John O'Groats also serves up excellent lunches and dinners, including seafood and vegetarian dishes. Dinner hours are Wednesday through Saturday 6pm to 9pm.
Be aware that the lines for this relatively small restaurant, named after a town in the the far north of Scotland, start up as early as 8am. The wait can range from 30 to 60 minutes. Plan on putting your name on the list and strolling along Pico or the pretty residential streets surrounding O'Groats. If you time it right, a perfect place to kill time is Children's Book World. You can also try to call ahead and get your name on the list.
Take the Pico Boulevard exit off the 10 Freeway, and head east. John O'Groats is located on the south side of Pico just west of Prosser Avenue. Parking is available on Pico, especially on weekends.
