Best Breakfast!f

This restaurant was located near our hotel and the L.A. Convention Center. While in L.A. we had breakfast here several times. The service was excellent and the food was just like you like it. We will go back here on our next L.A. trip.

I enjoyed my meal here. Stopped in for an early dinner. I had a tasty cup of lentil soup and the falafel plate which includes a big salad, hummus and pita bread. Very enjoyable.

We went there yesterday on one the hottest and most humid days in L.A. and opted to sit indoors. I usually get the Mediterranean Salmon salad but wanted something different. This time I had the grilled chicken breast kabob with a double salad and I was in heaven. My godmother had the tuna salad with sliced pita bread. The chicken... More

I had breakfast here with my son, We both got the French Toast but my son did not like the flavor of the bread, I ordered eggs for him instead and the very nice server still took 20% off our bill because my son did not like the French Toast, Service was good and quick,

Grabbed breakfast here with work colleagues. Sat outside, which was nice since it wasn't hot. French toast was ok, but the coffee was very good. Service was a little slow, but still enjoyed eating here.

We stumbled across this little restaurant while walking the streets on a trip to L.A. And I have been thinking about this meal ever since! It is a quaint little corner restaurant with tons of charm! I ordered the lasagna, and my friend had a Panini, they both were amazing! Don't even get me started on the tiramisu, I dream... More

Met with my wife and another couple for Sunday brunch. Sat in the front patio area. As always, the patio and restaurant was very clean. The wait staff were extremely friendly. The food was great, as with the coffee that they serve. I have never had a bad experience with their food. I would highly recommend this place for any... More

Whenever I'm in the downtown area, I always try to take eat here. Their sandwiches and soup are outstanding! This spot is very clean, with a great ambience. The music in the background is usually playing Standards/Sinatra type adding to a great experience. Best part, you ll feel very safe here.

A group of us (about 10) went to Panini for dinner Saturday night (01.03.2014) after a day of shooting (photographing) around downtown LA. The staff was very accommodating with our somewhat large group and took very good care of us. I had the Charbroiled chicken shish kabob with veggies, which included rice and a salad. A lot of food at... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
