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.

I live in the area and this is my go to spot for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. How many places can you say that about. I am here at least once a week. The food here is just amazing and very tasty. The staff and owner just makes you feel at home. You just have to try this place and... More

Ordered the standard breakfast on the menu. You know, with eggs and bacon coffee etc.I told them I was in a hurry on my way to the danish baker around the corner. Revived my meal rather quick and good and hot. No complaints at all. Just might make this stop a habit at 8:30 am when picking up my order... More

Outstanding Food! Great Service. Restaurant was a little noisy, but that's probably because it was packed...and for good reason. You'll be so busy enjoying the food that you won't need to converse. good value. We will definitely be back.

We visited here with my family for breakfast. Service was ok, food was great (portions - as usual - really large). We had pancakes, scrambled eggs and omelet.

We stayed at the Travelodge that shares the site with this restaurant and were given vouchers to eat breakfast here. Oh my! The food at the Metro Cafe is off the charts good! So fresh and lots of it. If you like French Toast, you must try theirs; large, freshly sliced slices of really great bread cooked to perfection with... More

We enjoy this little restaurant near a Travelodge in hip Culver City every time we are in LA. Very fresh, European-sensibility food and casual relaxed atmosphere. We consider it a "family tradition" to stop by. Try the burratta cheese and peppers. Mmm.

I can't believe that this is the #1 rated place in Culver City. We stopped in for dinner and found the menu to be very lacking so we went elsewhere. We did try it again for breakfast and the selection was much better. The food was decent but a painted floor that is peeling just turns me off.

Have been coming here for some time, usually for Sunday breakfast, and it's always a great experience. If you're a pancake fan their house special of sautéed banana pancakes is a stand out and likely the best in LA. The on letter and egg scrambles are also excellent, and their bacon is always perfectly crisp but not crunchy. The staff... More

I was totally not impressed with this Café. First of all, it took too long for me to place an order. Then even longer to receive my food. Simply the food was not good to me. Also, I specifically asked for my bacon not to be too crisp and it almost cut my mouth. Best thing about this breakfast was... More
