Locals know where to go for a great breakfast and good conversation. This is it. Small, quaint, and cozy. I found the food awesome and coffee hot. Not expensive. Located just a tad East off 101 on the right. You can't miss it but I won't give away the funky secret. Again, you can't miss it!

Came here for breakfast on a Saturday morning a couple of weekends ago. I had driven by a few times but was actually a bit leary about trying because the outside does look a bit "odd." However, I found a Local Flavor offer for $10 for $20 worth of food so figured might as well. Realizing now the outside is... More

My friends n I wanted to eat at a "mom & pop" place so I suggested the Mayor's Place. I've enjoyed a few lunch n dinners there with my kids & never had a bad meal. We chose to sit in the patio area. Now each of us have a different definition of patio dining, but this was actually like... More

I have eaten at Mayors Place more times than I can count, but never thought to rate the place. I like it a lot. It is certainly a "locals place", but they treat everyone who comes into the place in the same friendly way. I know, you didn't come here to talk, you came here to eat! Mayors Place does... More

We have only been there for breakfast - but my my, 'tis yummy! And HUGE! Many things can be/should be (?) split for folks with a lesser appetite. We love the folks there! Go GO! Enjoy!

My son and his girlfriend make it a point to eat at Mayors Place every time they are in town. Quite a compliment since my son is a top-rated chef in LA!

This hole-in-the wall restaurant has mighty tasty breakfasts. Its funky look adds to its charm. Lots of locals eat here. Very friendly staff. The breakfasts are really good, but the lunches are just average.

Came with my sister and brother-in-law for breakfast. I got an omelet that was overcooked and rubbery. They both got an egg entrée that came with bacon or sausage and hash browns, both of theirs were "egg"-cellent. Next time I will order one of those and steer clear of the omelets.

The outside of the Mayor's Place is interesting but we were wary and did not try this restaurant until recently. Our food was great and we will go there to eat again.

Very small house turned into a restraunt. Inside is cramped and doesn't have a lot of air-circulation. Very nice outside patio. Food is tasty, comfort fare. Wait staff is very nice and accomodating. Good place to meet locals. I met a WW2 vet there who had landed in Normandy on "D" Day!
