When it's a cold and rainy day in Los Angeles, all you want is something comforting, especially when waking up. It is difficult to get out of the warm bed unless there is something worth it. 

My friend phoned me up in the morning and wanted to get breakfast. The original plan was to get Korean food, but then we managed to take a detour to satisfy our cravings for pancakes. 

Jacks N Joe is a cool and hip breakfast spot located near USC. They are known for their pancakes, which consists of half the menu. 

This ain't no IHOP. The ambiance is a trendy, hipster "ish" diner. It feels like a mom and pop shop and the staff are super friendly.

HASHBROWNS ($3.50). This was delicious. It tasted like fresh shredded potatoes that have been cooked perfectly to a nice crispy outer texture. I thoroughly enjoyed eating it. 

MY FAVORITE DISH. TREE HUGGERS ($10.50): 3 Buckwheat Pancakes with House Made Granola, Seasonal Berries, Sweet Orange Butter, Sprinkled with Powdered Sugar. This was delicious. It definitely tasted a bit healthier since it was made with buckwheat. It was soft and moist, with a bit of texture. I like the granola and the fresh berries. It was well-balanced. 
Overall, I thought Jacks N Joe was delicious. My friend and I were able to get in and out pretty quickly without a wait. If you are coming with a large party, I think the wait times could be longer. The staff were very efficient and I really liked the coffee they had as well. I just wish it was a little more conveniently located to me. Additionally, parking can be a bitch during the weekends.
