    The late hours make this place a go-to for a post-Echoplex rendezvous. Skip the bacon-wrapped hot dog vendors and head straight here. Fried chicken was delicious and true diner ambience was super fun.

    Fantastic breakfast for bacon lovers and vegans alike. If there are just a couple of you, have a seat at the bar and chat with the friendly (but very busy) staff.

    It's been a neighborhood hangout for almost a century, and now it's a mainstay for the late-night crowd spilling out from The Echo on any given night of the week Read more

    I have to say that, as a tea drinker, I wholly appreciate the fact that they give you a POT of hot water and not just a cup. As well as a healthy selection of teas to choose from yourself.

    Be sure to check out the Autumn Specials! Right now, they're serving an amazing Krunchy Kale Salad. In addition, they've added lots more vegan and vegetarian options since I last visited.

    The home-cooked feeling/food is gone . The kids took over, changed menu, gutted the place. Good bye corned beef hash they were known for. This is for after club was morning. Don't bother to dress.

    Brite Spot is a hipster hangout, serving casual eats, festively decorated desserts, and lots of heavily frosted cupcakes. Also featured @ the Pancake Breakfast 8/11/13 at Vibiana! Try the Veggie Club! Read more

    Dana Hollister did a great job revamping this classic Eastside greasy spoon with a slightly more refined menu and a top drawer sweets section (like pies!). Read more

    The kale salad, all breakfast items as well as their pies... BUT their coffee is always cold and doesn't taste good AND the service is MEDIOCRE!!! Good luck getting a refill...

    Breakfast foods are always a good choice. The Chicken and Waffles are awesome, but for a slightly lighter option, try the Brussels and Bacon Hash.

    Ricky is the best server. Ask for her and tell her Jimmy from San Diego sent you. Don't forget to try the vegan chocolate cake and leave a tip.

    For southerners looking for a good chicken fried steak this is the ish but its a little on the small side. The chicken tenders are delicious

    Best for breakfast or Mexican. I recommend corn beef hash, granola, eggs florentine (v lemony hollandaise), butter lettuce salad, and veggie sausage

    The Pumpkin spice pancake was delicious, but make sure you have something salty to balance out the sweet. Sooo goood!

    I go for the southern decadence every time, but the kale salad is good if you want to give your arteries a break.

    Come here during odd hours for great service, during regular hours to be ignored, at any hour for an amazing milkshake.

    This was my favorite restaurant in LA, but after a full hour of waiting for our food without any check-in from our waiter, it's the first restaurant I've ever walked out of.

    I have the sloppy tofu scramble and my mom had the veggie omelet. They were both just ok. Food is bland. Salt and pepper didn't help.

    After going to the Echo or drinking at El Prado, go here and get the Chili or the Grilled Cheese. Avoid the French Dip.

    Come in for a weekend breakfast. It's relaxed, reliable and the music will be cool. Get one of the messes.

    Horrible service and they're always out of something. Too bad, use to be my favorite vegan place. I'll stick to Doomie's.
