The Best Quick & Savory Breakfasts in LA Worth Rolling Out of Bed For

Every so often, especially after a night of drinking, you just want to wake up and have something that is going to satisfy your super strong hunger pangs. We have all been there... the craving for carbs and protein all at once the next morning is real! 

But, there's always that level of laziness (or hungover-ness) that we often find ourselves feeling too tired to figure out a brunch spot the next morning. To put it simply, we just want something quick, low-key but still loaded with the delicious flavors of brunch we crave. Well, luckily there's quite a few spots in the LA neighborhood that are one hundred percent worth rolling out of bed for, no matter how tired you are in the morning!

Some of the best food in Los Angeles tends to come from the smallest, inconspicuous restaurants, and The Standing Room’s Redondo Beach location is no exception. Starting from the back of a liquor store, The Standing Room is known for whipping up some of the craziest burgers and serving it out of a beluga whale window. With a menu that rarely changes, the cooks decided to create a new burger to feed early risers and breakfast lovers. The Breakfast Burger is made with 1/2 pound Angus beef, bacon, fried egg, homemade potato slices, habanero coleslaw, American cheese, cheddar cheese, and togarashi spice. This burger is perfect for anyone who likes to start their day with a hearty meal.
