They say food is the most important meal of the day. For $20, today's Groupon gets you $40 worth of healthy, hearty food and drink at Hugo’s Restaurant, where the famed daily breakfast is served until 4 p.m. and tasty dinner dishes are served until 10 p.m. at the West Hollywood and Studio City locations.
If your taste buds respond poorly to morningtastes, head over to Hugo's for plenty of delicious later-day entrees. Try the macaroni and cheese, perfectly steamed fusilli filled with a trifecta of cheeses and baked until crispy ($12.50). Cure a carnivorous craving with the popular hormone-free Angus ground Hugo Burger, crested with the toppings of your choice ($12.75). Wash it all down with a glass of organic wine from Hugo’s well-curated menu or with a cocktail from the bar.
For great breakfast eats, Hugo's serves up great breakfast eats. Try the Pasta Mama with eggs, garlic, parsley, Parmesan cheese and Hugo’s special seasoning ($11). Hugo’s uses Chino Valley Ranch’s organic, vegetarian-fed eggs in all its dishes; ovophobes and vegans can substitute organic tofu. There’s also a breakfast a la carte menu and a breakfast at night menu if you’re nocturnal or want to impress out-of-town visitors with your ability to procure breakfast at odd hours.
If you have a friend with strict dietary requirements, Hugo’s symbol-coded menu easily outlines options for vegan, vegetarians, and gluten-free diners. All dressings for salads are vegan and gluten free, and there’s even an accommodating dessert menu. The specials rotate each month, so there's always fresh, exciting new flavors on Hugo's horizon.
The comfortable, casual atmosphere has been known to attract industry big wigs and media moguls. You might spy Steven Spielberg adding cream to his cup in the back tea room or Zac Efron spooning mac 'n cheese.
- This is one of the many brunch places I tried within a month span in West Hollywood. I loved the healthy, organic foods they offered. Loved my bloody mary, too. The food tasted very fresh. – dianamamia, Citysearch
- I am a big fan of Hugo's. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait but it's well worth it. Nice portions of delicious, healthy food. – carlakarma1, Citysearch
