TripAdvisor reviews led us here, and Metro Cafe did not disappoint! Osso bucco was enjoyed by one, goulash by a second, and burgers by the last two in our party. A grilled corn salad was shared by all - amazing! This was comfort food in a fun, eclectic neighborhood setting. Don't miss it!

Dropped by for dinner with another couple. It was busy but we were seated right away. The staff was cheerful and funny. I had the smoked chicken pistachio pesto pasta and it was delicious! I normally don't eat all of my meal and I surprised myself and ate every bite. The atmosphere was relaxed and the food was great. Definitely... More

Great breakfast! My coffee cup was kept full, food was fresh and hot. Too much garlic in the Italian omelette , but the blueberry pancakes ROCKED!

Loved the little cafe. Our waiter was a pleasure and the food was really good. I had the serbian breakfast because how often do you get a chance for that in the US? The owner is Serbian so has sprinkled in some of his home country dishes into the menu.

Best food in town! Too bad the hotel attached is disgusting. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Highly recommended

We were looking for a good breakfast spot in Culver City- and based on reviews, we Uber'd here while in So Cal. The picture doesn't show it- but this is actually in a Travel Lodge location. If you want a hearty breakfast - this will do. If you want some atmosphere - not so much. I'm willing to give up... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Culver City, bar-none. The food is excellent (get the goulash or the oso buco!) and the service is great. The owners are always around and happy to chat with guests and they make you feel like part of their family. The style is Central European with homemade pastas. I have never been disappointed and...

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.
