First time having lunch at Crave Cafe. Food was great and service was speedy. Plenty of items on the menu, but I decided to go with the salmon salad and organic vegan friendly black bean soup . I enjoyed lunch and will be back next time in LA. Sorry, I guess I didn't save my image of the delicious salad.... More

After reading all the reviews, I was excited to try out this place. I went on a Saturday and it was not that busy. Seating on patio or indoors. It was easy to find seating on the patio,no hostess to seat you. You order your food and then take a number and food will be brought to your table. I... More

You can get the entire menu 24/7. Prepared Fresh and they offer vegetarian, gluten free. Great soups. Also have an amazing sushi area inside the restaurant (sushi not available 24/7). Order at the register and wait for delivery to your table. When we are visiting we always make our way to Crave multiple times. Patio and indoor seating. cravecafeshermanoaks.com

I've been to Crave a few times, and breakfast is especially busy, often with a line out the door. You order at the counter and they bring you your food. The staff is friendly and the portions are generous. They have a good variety on the menu, but I would love it if they had a few vegan options. It's... More

Service can be pretty slow, even during non-busy times. That said, one time when my order was misplaced -- and I didn't get my food until 30 minutes after my wife got hers (thankfully we were in no rush, and put 90 minutes on the meter) -- they brought us a huge strawberry-banana-Nutella "apology crepe." Oh, and I don't know... More

I was just walking along, and spotted this place full of customers and thought I'd head in for a late lunch. Glad I did. It's not the most glamorous of places, but the food was great. I opted for the Chicken Caeser salad, it was a huge portion even though I'd picked the smaller size. It tasted really good, as... More

We've been to Crave a couple of times and it's always a good choice. You order at the counter and take a number. The portions are large! For example, my garden omelet was so huge it could have been shared. It comes with your choice of a side, toast & a little fruit. I chose the potatoes and they are... More

Crave is a fun place to have breakfast 24 hours a day, their crepes are pretty good and the vibe is adequate - particularly for late night munchies. However, the management and service is so bad that you can literally wait for 45 minutes or even an hour in line waiting to place an order. The management is more interested... More

I have eaten here several times. Good news is they are open late. Bad news is food quality and service.
