It’s not often you eat brunch in an abandoned Denny’s and want your friends to see it on Instagram. Yet sure enough, inside of America’s hipster safe house (Ace Hotel), King’s Highway is the all-day cafe where everyone who just can’t with the pool anymore wants to be seen. Don’t let the wide-brim hat crowd fool you though - with a menu full of things people like to eat before noon, King’s Highway has sneakily become one of the best breakfasts in town and has a Jetson-chic atmosphere going for it, too.
