Breakfast was good, average, service was very good. Portion size was very large. Like that they offer real maple syrup, even though it is extra it's worth it

My husband and I recently moved to West LA and were sent an invitation from this establishment. We decided to give them a try. It's an adorable restaurant with 50's them everywhere. Even the waitresses dress the part. There are cute red and white booths to dine in and memorabilia everywhere you look. It's worth it just to see the... More

If you want good old American comfort food, this is not a bad place to get it. My favorite sandwiches are their avocado BLT and their Tuna Tom Jack (tomato and melted jack cheese). Ice cream fountain items are better than average. Their soups and salads need some re-inventing.

Great atmosphere, worth a visit. Milkshakes were yum, burgers ordinary. Chilli cheeseburger bun was soggy and burgers ordered M/WD were just on M. Chilli dip on side was more like bolognese. Monday night is half price burgers, worked out to bad not bad value.

Great food at this terrific diner-inspired restaurant. Fun Hollywood memorabilia everywhere you look, oldies music playing and very good food. I had the turkey dinner and was pleasantly surprised at how fresh everything was - the mixed veggies included asparagus which was great. Of course ice-cream treats rule, and the milk-shake I got did not disappoint. Fun place to get... More

We were staying at a hotel a couple of blocks from Cafe 50's. It 's really cool place to see, lots of old picture posters on the wall .. looks like a throw back diner from the 50's. The food was average, and there only seemed to be 2 people working and the service was terribly slow. My wife ordered... More

I just ate there with my bf and got the worst service I've ever had!! Everything she did was wrong. She should change job careers.
