We just Mother's Day b'fast at Square One. We are visiting our family here in L. A. We always try to go to Sq. One for b'fast when we are here. The food is great and the service is excellent. Eating on the patio is the way to go if the weather is good. On the weekend get there early as the line can get long.

Just ate here and the service was very poor. Not attentive, no refills, no check once our table had been cleared. Food was not good enough to outweigh the service. I won't be returning. Go to Millies if you want your coffee refilled. That guy is on top of it.

I came across this place after reading some other reviews on this site, it was brilliant! The food was fantastic. The only downfall I this place is that the staff could be a little quicker especially on weekends where people are waiting outside for a table.

The Los Feliz/ Silverlake/ Echo Park area has no shortage of brunch spots. But my absolute favorite in the area is actually not technically in any of those neighborhoods. Square One is located a bit south of where Los Feliz proper begins, near the Children's Hospital and just across the street from the massive Scientology castle/ bunker/ celebrity showoff building (which does mean the neighborhood is crawling with people wearing Scientology uniforms and smiles). It's a pretty short walk to get there, and worth the extra effort (especially you'll probably want to work off your meal a bit after eating it).

Square One has possibly the best French Toast I've ever eaten... the buttery sweet concoction practically melts in your mouth. But I like to get something with at least a little bit of protein for breakfast, so I usually order one of their amazing Benedicts (the smoked salmon is particularly delicious), Breakfast Sandwiches, Omelets, and Baked Egg Dishes.

They also serve Intelligentsia Coffee, some of the best stuff in the city, and they're always quick to refresh your cup. Plus the waitresses are always beautiful and filled with energy, despite the usually crazy crowds (if you go on weekends for brunch, you'll have to wait awhile... but it's completely worth it). Everything about Square One is much pretty perfect, despite its proximity to the giant fortress run by a certain celebrity driven cult.
