People eat three times a day to prevent mouthy mouths from brashly blurting out their distaste for the rest of the digestive system. Today's Groupon prevents inner-system quarreling by subduing chatty cheeks with homey eats and drinks at The Serving Spoon in Inglewood, which was named the #1 Best Breakfast in 2009. For $10, you get $20 worth of its much lauded and more often scarfed brunch and lunch fare. This deal is good for dine-in only.
The Serving Spoon's table-buckling centerpiece dish, the Ain't No Better Breakfast, comes with your choice of more than 15 meats, two eggs, and a selection of sides such as potatoes, grits, tomatoes, or cornbread. Get it with spicy beef-sausage patties for $7.95, a whole catfish for $13.90, or a T-bone steak for $12.25. Three-egg omelettes proliferate as well, headlined by the chili-laden “everything,” which is swelling with mushrooms, ham, spinach, and cheese ($10.55). There's also a multitude of pancake and waffle combos (such as Cookie's wings and waffle, $9.75). Lunch-minded folks can chow sandwiches or burgers instead—a bacon-and-cheese burger with fries and a choice of soup or salad goes for $10.25, and the mighty open-faced hot turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy will settle for nothing less than $7.80. You can even get sides of chitlins ($11.55) or cold cereal ($2.50).
Founded in 1982 by an unusually "handsome young man" with a stupendous mustache and a love of soul food, The Serving Spoon has since become an integral institution of Inglewood, the favored edible son of mayors, athletes, and that cool guy in the apartment next door. Today, the restaurant is owned and operated by the founder's daughter and her husband. They oversee every egg and biscuit to ensure each bite contained within is not only good for the duodenum, but good for the soul as well.
The Serving Spoon was named the #1 Best Breakfast on the 2009 CityVoter and myfoxLA's Best of the LA HOTLIST. Citysearchers and more than 50 Yelpers give it an average of 4.5 stars, and 100% of Urbanspooners recommend it.
- There is [sic] restaurants that are good, there are some that are the best. When you have breakfast here, you'll be spoiled for anything else. Had the Waffle w/ eggs & chicken wings. I can't put into words how delicious every piece of food was. – Juan A., Yelp
- You know a restaurant is a 5-star affair when even their side dishes (Grits, Chili, Mac/Cheese, their Chicken Soup, etc x10 are so good they can be stand-alone entrees. Another visit, another food coma, another round of one of LA's best restaurants. – Ed J., Yelp
- The food was to die for, the price is right, and the service was not delivered with a fake personality! I have found my new favorite spot to dine!! – gollyrivas, Citysearch
