Just like back in New Zealand - KIA ORA

The best coffee in LA - just like Down Under in New Zealand. Huge meaks and top quality and I always go to Kings Road when in LA.

We had heard this was a restaurant commonly visited by celebs but we didn't see any while we were there. I had the steak tacos and caesar salad and thought the food was amazing! But the restroom was disgusting... don't go to the bathroom unless you must!

Come only for breakfast. Lunch and dinner are okay, but not nearly as tasty. Chicken sausage and fontina cheese omelet is scrumptious. The coffee, which pours like motor oil (in a good way!), is the strongest I've ever had outside of Ethiopian restaurants. So delicious! Get here early (6:30 - 7:30 is ideal, particularly on weekends), or you'll be waiting... More

We had the best breakfast here! It was hard to decide because the choices all looked really tasty. I settled on the Spinach and Goat Cheese Omelet and my husband got the Chicken Cilantro Sausage and Fontina Omelet. Both were excellent! Something I really appreciated here was the portion size. Not overwhelming but not too small either. The potatoes and... More

The cafe is quite close to where I was staying with a friend in LA. It's nothing special from the outside - just another corner cafe - but the breakfast was very nice indeed and rather better than I expected. There is some seating outside, so if you don't mind the noise of passing traffic,that can be a bit nicer... More

Nice restaurant. Has outdoor seating, but you are right on a busy street. Service was ok, not very timely. I had the chicken chipotle panini and it was very good. Overall, a nice lunch spot convenient to Hollywood.

I came with my coworkers for lunch and the food is amazing! I definitely recommend the carrot soup. The sweet potato fries were exquisite! The price is great as well! Will definitely return.

Their latte is unbelievably good. They roast their own coffee and it makes for a great latte. The outside seating is great, inside is a little noisy.

When I walked into the cafe for breakfast I was approached by 3 service people who yelled at me about my service dog (who was wearing a vest), and they wouldn't listen to me when I tried to tell them the laws. Then, after all of that, the server comes to my table and says, "You can't sit here. This... More
