The "Shrine of Friendship"
For nearly 100 years, the Los Angeles Breakfast Club has been gathering to enjoy mornings among friends. Whether making new contacts or actively supporting good works in the community, its members come from all walks of life to share a meal and friendship. What started as an equestrian group has evolved into an open membership of professionals, entertainers, retirees, and friends — people who enjoy their community and are enthusiastic about living in Southern California.
The Los Angeles Breakfast Club hosts weekly speakers on topics covering your community and the world. It also provides opportunities to actively support local nonprofits through the Los Angeles Breakfast Club Foundation or through hands-on work with any of the organizations we highlight.
The Los Angeles Breakfast Club is a great way to become a more informed, effective member of your community and as we say each Wednesday morning, ”to get better acquainted and start your day off right!“
Wednesday Morning Breakfasts
Los Angeles Breakfast Club meetings are best described as a variety show. Each Wednesday morning program includes a buffet breakfast, sing-along songs, silly traditions, and an interesting presentation from a guest speaker.
Doors open 6:45 to 7:15 AM and members take the opportunity to arrive early and chit chat over coffee. Newcomers are always welcome and enthusiastically greeted by LABC members. From 7:00 to 7:30 AM, a buffet breakfast is served offering a wide array of choices including eggs, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, toast, fruit, pastries, and special menu items.
Around 7:30 AM, our program begins. The first half includes 97-year-old club traditions and songs, followed by a presentation from our weekly guest speaker. After the meeting concludes at 9:00 AM, speakers often sell and autograph books or merchandise before LABC guests depart.
