Why not start the day with a tasty LA Breakfast out? Options WeHo-style include local finds such as Dukes Coffee Shop, Hugoâs or Joeyâs Cafe, favorite hang-outs for people in the film and music industries. Or visit the Standard Hotelâs Restaurant, with its savvy, Sunset Strip take on coffee shop fare to satisfy your appetite for trendy spots serving great food.
