Used to live in the area and went there regularly. Even every time I visit LA now, I have to eat there at least once. My favorite Diner in the US
Wow! What a surprise! We were returning to our hotel, looking for a place for dinner and zipping past all the big national names when we spotted Cafe 50's on Santa Monica Blvd. Great food, excellent service and a very cool 50s vibe. Even our teenage son loved the 50s feel. I was thrilled to find they served breakfast all... More

I love to go for breakfast at the Saturdays when is packed... so WLA vibe makes that place especial!!

Went in for a quick bite and was pleasantly surprised. Onion rings were great and portion was substantial. Wife had burger with chili. Burger was perfect and chili is home made and flavorful. Meatloaf was delicious and mostly meat not filler. Full of flavor. Sautéed vegetables were excellent. Wonderful service. Most reasonable prices. Good find. Thanks to Trip Advisor.

The owner has an extensive collection of retro items all over both sides of the café. The server - a darling, blonde girl with tresses in 50s look - was friendly and vivacious. Her outfit reflected the era, too. The photo of her behind the counter looks liked a model for an ad; sorry I don't upload. Oh, and breakfast... More
