    Mediocre Diner Food & Feel! In reality it's in a Best Western that shouldn't be allowed to have a full-service restaurant. SKIP, try Fred62 instead!

    Not very impressive food. Slow service. Don't understand why the review rating is high. Nothing special about this place, especially from food quality perspective.

    Local favourite. Blackened chicken sandwich and the meatloaf is normally top of my list.

  • Anna T.

    Bad food, slow service

  • Roland

    The breakfast burrito baby! 😍

  • Thomas C.

    Normal portions of solid diner food. If you want to really eat, hit up a Norm's. Still, this place is great for people watching, breakfast desserts, and just a little bit of cool Hollywood history.

    Classic diner to eat at either before or after a night out.

    Michael Petralia · August 9, 2014
  • LAist

    It lovingly recreates that 1960's diner feeling with its menu and decor, but during the evening it feels a little bit lounge-y. Try the brownie waffle sundae Read more

    Old school diner conveniently located just off the 101. Breakfast served all day; try the Smoked Salmon Scramble (topped with Caviar and Sour Cream).

    Eden Tsai · March 24, 2014
  • Janice L.

    Don't get the breakfast burrito. All beans and tastes bland.

    I got food poisoning from here. Avoid if possible, certainly don't get the smoked salmon scramble.

    Pancakes are the best! Massive plate though so be prepared. Don't miss out on milkshakes... the berry one is delicious.

    Gluten-free eaters: the hash browns have a little flour in them. Get the grits!
