Great place to lunch while trendy shopping

The restaurant is not busy at night and a little depressing. It is walking distance to Cedars-Sinai hospital. It is right across the street form the Ivy in a trendy area for shopping. The turkey sandwich was great at lunch and the menu is large.

Great for people watching of a blend of locals and tourists. Casual, trendy, with below average service.

Several trips to Los Angeles brought me to the Newsroom Café for lunch. It is around the corner from Cedars Sinai hospital and across the street from Ivy, a fancier restaurant on Robertson. I was at the News Cafe in Miami (similar concept, not sure if same owner?), the old stomping grounds of Versace before he was sadly gunned down... More

We had lunch here on July 4th. Nice location right on Robertson diagonally across from the celebrity hotspot Ivy. Fun variety of food choices- though their waffle machine was broken and I had to figure out something else to order. The server seemed annoyed that I needed another minute. Otherwise nice lunch!

It's been 2 yrs since we were last here but glad it's as good as we remembered! I had egg whites w/ caramelized onions & chicken sausage, hubby had ahi tuna salad. Both delivered on taste! Staff great & friendly. Good value & good location.

Great lunch spot in a great Beverly Hills location. Directly across from The Ivy restaurant, so good chance you might see some celebrities. I had the ahi tuna sandwich with avocado and ginger, it was excellent. Service was also very good, all in all a great place. I would say this place has a scenic view from the people watching...

This place is nothing special but it is Fine for a quick and somewhat healthy bite and their happy hour prices are ridiculous - so cheap. I would choose this place over Cuvee, though.
