Been there again after few years, and never disappointed. Food is good and so is the service, which is quite fast considering it can be pretty busy.

I love this place. I have been going on and off for many years. Great place at breakfast, brunch, launch, afternoon tea, dinner, middles of the night munchies. Food is good and nicely presented, atmosphere and trendy locals are bringing together Los Angeles spirit. Waiters have an attitude just like the place. Little pricey but worth it.

This place wasn't bad, but for the prices, it should have been better. Breakfast for 2 with tax and tip was about $40 USD. Burgers and fries for 2 with 1 beer was about $60 USD. The food was good enough, but the service and the price would make me reluctant to go back again. However, it was the only... More

I get the restaurant was busy and probably understand but service was slow and we had to ask a couple of times for a straw and water. The food was a bit below average, it didn't have too much flavour and a bit too tomatoy (had tomato pasta of some sort meal) we had a specific dietary request which was... More

So, I didn't have the silver dollar pancakes because I had my heart set on the waffle. The fact they had silver dollar pancakes was exciting though. Sadly, the food was a bit uneven, my friends ordered the exact same dish and the dishes were were cooked to different levels of done-ness. Service was average and laid back to a... More

We were only in LA for 1 night but we dined here twice as we enjoyed it so much the first time. Excellent value for money - you will not leave hungry! It's kind of off the beaten track but it gets pretty busy at lunch times and I can see why! This place has a real classic American diner... More

We were staying at the adjoining hotel, and decided to eat there for our first night in LA. It was a Friday night. Had a burger and ended up staying for a few hours drinking, eating and people watching. Love the decor, and the service we had was brilliant that night. We did go back again the following night for... More

The lady who took my order seemed very disinterested. I ordered orange juice, hot oatmeal, a hot breakfast and coffee. She didn't write any of it down, just said something to someone. My coffee arrived one minute later with things floating in it and some lipstick remnants on it so I got this replaced, they apologized. 2 minutes later my... More

I stayed for one week and was really amazed at the attention to detail. The walls are filled with great movie memorabilia, Hollywood actors, actresses, music, and film. A true reflection of all the interesting things of Hollywood through the years. The place is super clean, prices very reasonable for a town that can be very expensive to visit. The... More
