As you probably know , they never close . It is breakfast 24/7. The portions are huge. Be ready to stand in line for a while. I must say the turn over is fairly quick for the volume of customers. You will enjoy the history...More

Our daughter grumble about waiting in line for 45 minutes- until she got her stack of pancakes. Then she was ready to do it all over again the next day. It's a fun place, and part of LA history. A must for any traveller.

The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 green circles is the ridiculous wait for a table. But maybe that's part of the experience. Here's a tip: if you don't want to wait for a table, sit at the counter. Otherwise, there is...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

If you ask the gluten free question, this place is not for you. Only one in 2,000 people actually has a possible issue with glutens.. The Pantry is not about health food.
