It was time for a belated Mother's Day brunch, and since I have not one but two little devils, Lucky Devils seemed like the perfect place. I had hoped to combine it with a trip to the Hollywood Farmer's Market or a hike in the hills, but due to the fire and the general laziness of teenagers, we combined it with browsing the wierdness of Hollywood Costumes instead. The brunch menu, served until 3:00, is pretty nice -- beer pancakes, which I wanted to try as soon as I heard about them, brioche french toast, lots of omelette combos and a spicy breakfast sandwich with eggs, sausage, peppers and potatoes (pictured below). The pancakes were crispy and rich, with a subtle yeasty flavor which couldn't really be identified as beer. But if you're up for it, you can have one of their great craft beers or a Devilish bloody mary with your pancakes or perhaps more fittingly with the spicy breakfast sandwich. It was already lunch time, so Sam had one of their excellent Angus burgers and fries.
