The Waffle

Hollywood

Of course we had to include this Sunset Blvd staple, with the prize right in the name! With a vegan-friendly menu, they offer a vegan and gluten-free waffle option served with plant-based butter and maple syrup. Pro tip: Add a side of their country potatoes and one of their $8 double-sized mimosas. Open for pickup, delivery, and outdoor dining.

Crossroads Kitchen

West Hollywood

A local favorite for date night, Crossroads offers vegan fried "chicken" and waffles, served with warm maple hot sauce to spice up this savory dish on their brunch and daily lunch menus. Open for delivery, pickup, and patio seating via reservation.

Munchies Diner

Santa Ana

Another restaurant closed on Mondays, but worth the look on Sunday is OC's first original vegan diner, Munchies. This Black-owned eatery is worth the drive to OC and has some of everyone’s favorite nostalgic food, including their incredible Chicken & Waffles featuring a whole Belgian waffle and seitan fried “chicken” with 100% maple syrup on their brunch menu. Brunch is served Sunday from 11am-4pm.

This hip neighborhood cafe offers a fairly customizable menu, with vegan and vegetarian options clearly labeled, and swappable!

With safety in mind, they are open for dine-in and have a QR menu code on every table for easy ordering.

Millie's Cafe

Silver Lake & Pasadena

With two locations in the LA area, Millie's has an entirely separate vegan menu, featuring waffles of savory and sweet varieties—a savory waffle stuffed with bacon bits and a yummy sweet version with blueberry compote, strawberries, carob chocolate chips, bananas, or walnuts on top. Or go with a combination of your choice, served with vegan butter and real maple syrup. Gluten-free options are available as well.

Have your waffles on a beautiful outdoor patio and garden at the newly renovated Plant Food + Wine for brunch a day early, on Sunday. Their menu features a picturesque Hazelnut Waffle served with blackberries and spiced syrup. The camera definitely eats first here!

Yoga-urt

Echo Park & Glendale

Serving up house-made gluten-free, vegan waffles, “Yoga-urt in the Morning” is open at their Glendale location on Sunday from 9am-1pm, with a variety of toppings, including any of their amazing and creative soft-serve flavors (think: Birthday Cake, Mango Sunrise, or Peanut Butter Prana).
