Fred 62 is a small diner on the corner of a busy street in Silverlake. The menu is huge, the staff are pretty miserable (what you'd expect from a 24/7) and in the evening prepare to share the sidewalk seating with a lot of cockroaches. It's late night eating with local Silverlakers to a Prince soundtrack, and if you can... More

We had a lot of milkshakes in California, and a lot of good ones at that, but Fred 62 had to be the absolute best! Located in Los Feliz - a totally brilliant area. Make sure you visit!

I had my first ever Malt experience. I love chocolate shakes, now I love chocolate malts! Had a great fun experience and enjoyed the unique-edgy menu.

Arranged to meet up with some friends for breakfast whilst visiting LA and this was the chosen location. We were seated right away and given the menu which has a great amount of choice. I went with the pancakes and OJ. The OJ was freshly squeezed and delicious so couldn't really ask for more. The pancakes came and were very... More

Wanted a bit of lunch near our travelodge and walked past here. Looked busy and cool so popped in. Turned out to be an American diner but with a great diverse menu. Nice fresh drinks and and very friendly service.

We enjoyed sitting street side for a delicious lunch. The mango lemonade was a real treat, along with the loaded nacho appetizer. My husband, who tries veggie burgers at every stop, said this one was superior. My son enjoyed the pork belly sandwich. My cup of chicken and veggie soup with rice was very tasty. Fortunately I ordered the smaller... More

Stopped by for the first time for lunch because we were in the area, walking. The menu looked interesting and the waitress was very friendly. I like fresh, interesting salads or healthy sandwiches for lunch. Burgers are out for me. So I went over their extensive sandwich menu and settled for a Mediterranean falafel sandwich with roasted eggplant and tahini.... More

A neighborhood and tourist favorite for real L.A. neighborhood atmosphere and flare. Recently, a new menu was introduced which appeared to offer fresher food in imaginative combos. This confusing new menu, along with sloppy execution of it, has led to situation expressed in two words. Lousy Food. Examples, one of our party ordered Beef Ribs and Brisket. He asked to... More
