This is one of the favorite places for a low key breakfast/lunch meeting. Service is good..you're typical morning food fare, but always keep your eyes open. You may see someone you recognize from TV or movies.

Found this place while staying in Studio City. Some locals we're sitting here, not bothered by a stranger coming in. It felt like I was in a restaurant I always visited with my grandfather as a young kid. Had a good dinner, everything fresh. Service outstanding. Wish I had this kinda place in my town !

Food is average nothing special, but a very good location and good prices. It looks like an old Denny's.

Basic all night diner. I was starving and it hit the spot. Fast. Clean and saw lot's of police officers eating there. Always a good sign. Reasonably priced.
