My secret tip is Millie’s Cafe in Silver Lake, which in my opinion is the best place for breakfast in the whole of Los Angeles. I’m vegetarian and I think it has the best vegan BLT that exists, though it also has tons of meat options. There’s something for everyone. It’s been my go-to spot for years. Many people I know in LA don’t seem to be aware of it. I’ve been taking them, and they’re always shocked that they don’t know about it. That said, it’s busy, so get there early. It has a charming, basic interior and a stretch along the street where you can sit in the sun or shade, immersing yourself in everything that’s going on outside. Silver Lake reminds me of Shoreditch. It’s a trendy area that’s enjoyable to explore on foot and you can walk from the café to all the shops.
