Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We’ve all heard it, but only some of us really adhere to the guidance. But, with so many delicious breakfast options out there to choose from including eggs, pancakes, French toast, fruit, parfaits and everything in between, it can be hard to narrow down the one you want each morning. Luckily, oatmeal is easy to make and with some additions like fruit, a little sugar and other add-ons, it is delicious and hearty. Here is a list of the best spots in LA to get oatmeal.
