Love this place, great for brunch (try the french toast!) and Dinner. They serve probably my favorite dish on the west side -- Chicken Bolognese. It is THE BEST! Also, our sever Ron was super attentive and great to talk to with tips for other things in the area. Thanks Ron!

We were literally just passing through Culver City and stopped in the Metro café quite by chance. The service was great, the food delicious, and the menu choices plentiful. Great lunch.

The Metro Cafe has lots of breakfast options. I went with several friends and we all enjoyed our meal. Started with fresh squeezed orange juice - followed by the Bern Omelet. The soft egg omelet was on top of delicious chicken sausages and spinach. The plate also included a piece of cantaloupe, potatoes, and toast - way too much! A... More

We have gone here many times and have always been pleased. I love the goulash. The brunch offers an extraordinary French toast dish.

Nice small cafe that is very popular with locals despite it catering to the Travelodge guests as it is surrounded by the hotel. We had a large group for breakfast and staff was fast, attentive and very appreciative of our business. From omelettes to over easy eggs, all were well prepared and the bright orange yolks were enjoyed by all.... More

This is a very small, intimate dining establishment next to the Travelodge. I went here for dinner out of convenience since I was staying at the hotel for one night. There was a short wait since I was dining alone and had to wait for a smaller table. The place simply appointed and would be easy to miss if you... More

Small tables (2-4max) that turn fast. Massive slices of brioche for my French toast topped with freshly chopped berries, great coffee, good juice, fluffy and French California omelet. Service was good. Bathroom is mediocre -- only use of need to. Don't be worried about the Travlelodge location. It's great.

I love this place ... wonderful ambience. I've eaten breakfast and dinner here many times. My favorite thing is the grilled corn salad ... it's light and flavorful. I have a lot of allergies, and their offerings are allergy friendly ... olive oil (no soybean oil). I love their lentil soup, too.
