Although we had to wait, it wasn't long on a saturday morning. There were 5 of us and everyone had something different - stuffed french toast, crepes, bananas foster pancakes, eggs, omeletes, fruit filled 'Jacks". So good 3 in our party had 2 entrees each. Carried us through the day. Total Yum!

Such a cool place with great service and GREAT food. A nice twist on breakfast. I had the WTF?! YUMMY pancakes. This place reminds me of a "Cheers" it has the everyone knows your name and you're extended family feel. Read the story of the restaurant and you will feel even better about patronizing it. I've been a total of... More

We were looking for a breakfast diner during our visit in LA, my friend saw this one through Urbanspoon. Just from the menu itself, everything is worth it! I had the Ruby Belle pancake combo, I must say I am officially a fan of pancake! The texture and taste of apple, cinnamon and pecan is one of the best combo... More

Delicious breakfast worth every cent. Had a 3 stack buttermilk pancakes and they were made to perfection. Tasted and looked great. Coffee was good too. Seems like a pretty famous place given me and my friends had to wait in line for 45 minutes at 10a.m

We stayed in downtown LA and wanted breakfast. I read a lot about this place so we went to check it out at like 9:30am on a weekday. I was surprised to find a half hour wait. We waited because we thought it must be good given the popularity. The restaurant was super cramped and there was really no "waiting... More

Took our USC son here on a Sunday morning. We waited about an hour to be seated. Once in, it was great; everything you want a breakfast place to be. We didn't mind the wait since we don't see our son often during the school year, but be prepared to sit outside a long time. We got there at 10:15am;... More

I went to USC and i felt in love with this place. During the weekend it may take a considerable amount of time to get a table but if you have the possibility of waiting an half an hour or sometimes more you will not have any regrets. If you go during the week days it will be much easier... More

The service is always great here. But come when the restaurant opens on the wknds to get a seat without waiting. It gets very busy. The pancakes and eggs are great. Haven't had much else. Coffee is not as good or strong as even Starbucks (probably a medium roast), but it's passable if you want a good breakfast and friendly... More

Wow - found this on online and glad I went. Staff is very friendly, food is great and there are a lot of options, and decor is interesting and modern. It's a little hard to find, it's in the back of a little parking lot / shopping center, just a heads up. Don't even think of the chain places, just... More
