    Friendly staff, downtown staple, wait times are long during peak times due to their popularity, plan accordingly

    The sparse seating is weirdly cramped and a little hard to navigate, but they're working with what they've got. LOVE that it's 24 hours. Cookies, Thai tea amazing, grilled cheese overrated.

    Probably the most consistent delivery and food downtown. Tuna Panini with chips (don't get fries for delivery they aren't good travelers) or Bangkok Salad are my usual staples. Brownies are good too.

    Love that it's open 24 hours. The food is fresh and the servers are friendly. The mezze platter was excellent especially the falafel.

    Great fresh-squeezed juice, and open 24 hours a day. What more could you want?! No good indoor seating, though.

    It was my first meal in LA and the lobster grilled cheese is a must try.. also the thai ice team. Sitting is limited but cute and cozy!

    The new menu is awful. Tried 3 different things and all terrible. Very disappointed. Used to love this place and the Mexicali Steak Salad.

    This is my friends' favorite place. They come almost everyday to have the lobster grilled cheese. A new level of flavor satisfaction. Like, out of this world.

    Headed here with a couple of friends after the bars closed down. A random stranger (drunk) told me to get the Lobster Grilled Cheese and that it would change my life. It in fact, has changed my life.

    Are panini's supposed to taste stale?? And the chips aren't that good either. But open late!

    I wound up here on a random, crazy L.A. night, helping out a stranger. I bought him some food and had some of the homemade chips -- pretty good. And open 24 hours? I'll be back.

    Great fresh squeezed O.J! Grilled veggie burger with fries isn't bad either. Food comes out fast!

    Loved the burger sliders, just enough without being too much. Fries are nicely crispy and seasoned. Sinful, must go back.

    The loose-leaf blend Berry Patch has such a deep reddish-purple color it’ll leave stains on your napkin, and such a naturally sweet, rich flavor that you won’t mind passing up all those coffee drinks. Read more

    I discovered LA Cafe in 2010. When it's hot, get there early and sit outside for lunch, and enjoy both the food and the service. In fact, the service is not bad for L.A.

    Their salads are foolish, negative lettuce. U know, iceberg. With zero nutritional value. Not the #amount

    Definitely recommend this place to anyone who has a lot of time to spare. We waited 48 minutes for a panini and a grilled cheese. The panini was cold and our chips were stale. Very unfriendly staff.

    Awesome place, worst fucking service of all time. I'd enjoy it a lot more if the employees didn't act like they hated being there so much.

    Skip the blander breakfast menu and grab the Shanghai Chicken Wrap or a burger instead.

    They have never gotten an order of mine correct. The staff is nice but they have no sense of urgency. It's a shame. None of the food is really all that great either. Don't believe the hype.

    The Turkey Avocado Panini is good. Almost all the sandwiches on a croissant role are pretty damn tasty as well. Seating outside is set up for the weather as well. Now open 24 hours.

    LA Cafe is super popular with DTLA locals. It''s open late, has cute outdoor seating, and all the food is tasty. The best part is checking out all the hot young guys who live in the apartments above! Read more
