“John O’Groats, a beloved, multi-award-winning restaurant based in the Rancho Park area of West Los Angeles, will celebrate its 40th Anniversary on Saturday, February 26, 2022. The restaurant has been owned and managed by the Jacoby / Tyler Family since its inception and has been cited by dozens of top national and Southern California media outlets as serving “The Best Breakfast in Los Angeles.””
“To celebrate this milestone, John O’Groats will award each of the first 40 Parties to arrive for Breakfast on the Morning of February 26, 2022, a $40 Gift Certificate!”
“Owner and General Manager Paul Tyler has been operating John O’Groats on a daily basis for decades, having taken up the baton from his parents – Angelica and (the late) Robert Jacoby – who originally founded the beloved restaurant on February 26, 1982.”
“Regarding the 40th anniversary milestone of his family-owned business, Paul Tyler said, “We love our customers – it’s as simple as that. Our customers are what drive our business, and we have long been humbled by the overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve received by the Southern California community over these past 40 years. Our customers simply love what we have to offer, which includes our famous fresh-made biscuits and pancakes, along with dozens of other breakfast and lunch specialties. We also pride ourselves on our catering and event services, and we are able to make any of our menu items available for take-out or to be included on an event’s catering menu.”
“Adds Angelica Jacoby, “The key to our success in this business is simple: you have to like people. My son Paul is a real people person – a very nice man who has always been an extrovert. His role here at John O’Groats isn’t a job for him – it’s his life.””
Paul, a Cornell University School of Hotel and Restaurant Administration graduate, is responsible for many signature menu items at John O’Groats. Vegetarian Hash and Eggs comes with fresh vegetables, home fries, apples, onion sauteed in olive oil and two eggs any style. Huevos O’Groats is a biscuit dough tortilla with black beans, onion, peppers, two eggs over medium, cheese, sour cream and fresh salsa.
