We’ve always been fans of [Salt’s Cure in Hollywood], especially for breakfast. That’s because they make the best pancakes we’ve ever had in our lives. (Sorry to any parent, grandparent, or lover who has ever made us pancakes.) Salt’s Cure is clearly confident in this skill, because they opened a tiny outpost that specializes specifically in pancakes on Montana Avenue. All of the griddle cakes are made with oatmeal, and you can taste that coarse, almost nutty texture in every bite. We like the OG griddle cakes, but wouldn’t blame you for adding bananas or blueberries into the mix.
