Great atmosphere, food, wait staff, and coffee that is about the best I have had anywhere. I always stop there when I have to come into town early morning for a rare day business trip.

I love this place SO much and have since they opened in 1990! While their food is consistently outstanding, it's their legendary coffee that deserves high honors. Back when Starbucks was charging $1.95 for a cup of dreadful drip coffee, Kings Road charged the same for an individually made cup of what is essentially a cafe Americano and only $0.50... More

I've been coming back to this spot since 1995. The food is delicious, coffee outstanding and great ambiance. A true Los Angeles designation.

I've been visiting Kings Road cafe for at least 25 years, way back then it was almost impossible to find proper coffee in LA. These day when we land at LAX from Australia it's pretty much straight to kings road fore a reviving coffee and breakfast, The omelettes and also an experience.

There's a great morning staff who serves the best coffee in the cafe. It's terrific place to have breakfast. I usually opt for their delicious blueberry scones or the chili poach, but their coffee is truly outstanding!!

This was recommended to us by the desk staff at the Elan. Staff are very friendly and seat you quickly. Menu has lots of choices. We all chose something different (2 had breakfast items and 2 had lunch) and everything was made exactly the way we wanted it....delicious. Portions and price were very reasonable. It has tables outside and in.... More

This is the kind of place I like to hang out with a friend, have a cup of coffee, share a meal and just enjoy watching people go by.

Still banging away at the apartment hunt, looking for a robust brunch to be 1 of 2 meals a day. A small tepid tea continued the almost universal discrimination against tea (instead of coffee) drinkers, hardly worth the steeping. The exception: Blue Jam Cafe, where a large steeping pot can be tuned to the amount and heat desired. Apart from... More
