We were staying in the LA area after the Stevie Wonder show recently and I was looking for a good diner in the area and Tripadvisor point me to this establishment. I do love diners and always search them out looking for those special ones. This one is good, but won't make my top 10 list. The owner was very... More

We met my son, all of us from out of town at this very popular diner. A few minutes wait was well worth it. A really great selection on the menu.

Going here for years. The owners and staff are friends of the family by now. The baked goods are always made fresh and excellent. Breakfasts are good and the healthy choices are amazing. It does get crowded and the wait can be long but it's worth it. Only bad part is no air conditioning and it can get really hot... More

Creme Brulee oatmeal was quite tasty! My daughter had the banana french toast and ate every bite! Service was prompt and very accomodating! Really wanted to return to try their incredible sounding grilled cheese sandwiches...Next trip!

A magnificent wonderful vibe! The best way to experience this fun diner is to open the door and just walk through. Yep, that's it because your water and/or coffee cup will never remain empty until you mumble those fabulous words, 'No more, please.' The servers are fun, the food consistently very satisfying, the cook is 'on spot,' and the baker... More

While in town to visit our son, we had been out exploring the town that he now calls home. We'd made our way to the florist (for an exotic CA plant to bring home), and the surf shop (to check out where our transplanted Midwestern son now purchases all his beach "toys") across the street, when we saw a sign...

A small diner in Hermosa with a huge menu. The food was scrumptious, service was excellent. Don't be turned off by a waiting line, the diner is small but well worth the wait.

Food is always spot on and service is great. Like an old school diner with countertop service available. Always a line in the morning but coffee is available while you wait. Best breakfast spot in town.
