I was in Los Angeles last weekend and had the opportunity to brunch with my friends.  It was really great to see everybody, especially without having to take a cross country flight as I did the short, two hour drive from San Diego.

We chose to go to Newsroom because it has a fairly central location to all of us and some of the brunch's members had to go to appointments nearby or at least on the way passing by Newsroom.  I was excited to see that the restaurant now offers gluten free pancakes and waffles.  I waffled a bit on which to choose (pun intended, apologies) but ultimately went with the pancakes.

Instead of being a stack of pancakes the gluten free pancake is served up on a large plate which it practically envelops.  Just as importantly, of course, is whether the pancake was any good.  I have great news: it was awesome.  All of my friends dug in for a bite and really enjoyed it.  It isn't overly thick like some other gluten free pancakes nor too mealy; it tastes just like what I remember gluten filled pancakes tasting like.

The service was great at Newsroom, there was ample street parking (and lot parking with $5 validation) and shops nearby if you want to walk off some of your breakfast; it's an especially great location because West Hollywood is one of the most pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in Los Angeles.  I'll definitely visit Newsroom again when I'm in Los Angeles and in need of a good breakfast spot.

Do you love it or do you love it?
