We ate at the Metro Cafe for dinner and for breakfast. Both times the food was excellent and in our opinion also great value. Additionally the staff is very friendly. We never had the feeling that we needed to hurry up and finish eating and leave, which often can be the case.

This is one of the better restaurants around and you can't beat the quality/price ratio! I have tried all the items on the menu over the years and would order any again. They also have vegetarian dishes (Bernie, the chef, is a vegetarian - but you wouldn't know it). If the English Pea Humus is in season, order it.

A small place that one could easily overlook. That would be a mistake, as the Metro serves good fresh food, is a good value, and has a really good staff.

We have stayed at the Travelodge a couple times now and have ate at the METRO for breakfast and dinner. Good food and good portions. I have never left hungry. The food is freshly prepared and they bring in fresh bread from a bakery. They have been busy when we chose to eat, but they are working and not purposely... More

We have now stayed at the travel lodge next door to this diner on several occasions. The welcome and food are both very good. The quality stays the same from year to year. very good value.

This is just your usual Serbian American diner adjoining a Travelodge Motel. Whaaaa...? I never would have guessed that any place attached to a Travelodge would have decent food, but surprise, surprise! This is a great neighborhood place, well worth a visit. We usually come here for weekend breakfast but lots of other folks have the same idea, so be... More

Tripadvisor is my trusted source for restaurants and ranked Metro #1. Boy was I disappointed. Service was sub-OK and the food was so/so. Yes, my hopes were set high because of the ranking and I would have done better at Denny's. Warning - don't use their bathroom - nasty!! Sorry Metro, but need to warn folks........

I have been a fan of this local spot, finding it by accident a few years ago when consulting yelp for something close to Sepulveda and Washington. Well this was the choice and it often is when I crave tasty food in the neighborhood and what a deal! Everything is great but especially the mushroom salad, zucchini pancakes, salmon dill... More
