So many different kinds of scrambled eggs, and all ingredients super fresh. I loved it so much I tried to recreate once I got home. Went back there for breakfast the next time I was in... More

We always have at least one meal at the Mtero whenever we're in LA. The food is abundant and the fruit cup is great. The owner is very personable and we feel welcomed as if we come here daily although we usually only make it to LA a couple times a year. Breakfast is fantastic but do try to get... More

I've been dining at Metro for close to 10 years, and they have consistently earned my praise, made me a loyal and frequent customer, and made me look like a genius when I referred people there. Their food is creative, fresh, and lovingly prepared, and their service is sincere, affable, and totally unpretentious. Also, the wine list has evolved greatly,... More

The friendly wait staff greeted us with humor and great recommendations. We arrived for a late breakfast on Saturday and all of us were happy and full. Great choices on the menu.

Small and tidy, this cafe serves excellent breakfast and brunch for a fair price. Their menu has some creativity to it while offering the expected items as well. Good service. Nice covered outdoor seating.

You wouldn't expect such a fine place in this location but the food is great and so is the service. Amazing French toast, and excellent other breakfast choices. Dinners are good too - tasty, fresh, good portions. Great value.

This place will fool you if you drive by. It's small, and located under a Travelodge motel. But everything the chef turns out here seems to be made to order, and is delicious. Lamb Osso Bucco is a personal favorite, but the Mushroom Salad, and other salads are great as well. It's a small but eclectic menu. For the luch... More
