The dining room was clean and not cluttered with table. The aroma of delicious pies filling the air. We went 4 times in three days with consistently great service and food. My favorite was their early bird specials until 11am for $4.95, a bargain by any standards. I had the french toast, egg and bacon special twice and it was... More

The location is great as it is located in a hip neighborhood in LA. I was disappointed as caliber of food has declined from years past. In addition, the service was very poor as we had to chase down the waitress to get help. Rather than being one of La's unique dinners, it has become a copycat of Denys. Also,... More

Went here to catch up with someone later at night. A typical American diner, which as we are from overseas was an experience. Food of good quality and pricing. If in the area and hungry, it should be considered.

Parked around the block due to small and tight parking lot. Was worth the walk. Had the croissant french toast and chicken apple sausage. It was excellent and unique. Of course had to have a slice of pie. Since it was October, I went for the pumpkin pie. That was a good decision. Our waiter was very friendly and didn't... More

It's a diner. It's in the neighborhood so we go there semi-regularly. It offers many kinds of pretty good greasy food. Inside there are both booths and tables, a counter, and a TV usually set to sports, and there's also a patio area. But the service is hit-or-miss, the prices are high, and I haven't been all that impressed with... More

Back again. Great service, friendly. Has an innovative selection of omelettes plus pancakes, etc. The peach pie was fabulous.

We had heard this place was supposed to be awesome so we decided to try it. The overall appearance of the place was a bit shabby and unclean. We sat in a booth and the springs in the seat were so worn that I felt like a little kid barely reaching the table. The window pane next to the booth... More
