“Very good food, diverse menu, popular place”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Fresh, healthy food that tastes great. I found street parking easily and didn't have to wait long, despite the place being really crowded.

“Good cute neighborhood local”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

King's Road Cafe is a staple in the neighborhood. The coffee is like rocket fuel, I truly believe that's the hook for most of the clientele. The food is just ok, really, nothing special, decent, although the breakfast options are good. It's all about the coffee and the LA characters who hang out all day long. You'll fight to get a table on the weekends, so crowded. But somehow I still recommend it for a weekend brunch. Stick to the breakfast items on the menu, they are far better than the rest.

“Great food, strong coffee.”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

If you love a strong coffee, this is the place for you. Each cup is freshly brewed. They have a decent selection of breakfast and lunch items. I usually just stick with breakfast when I go (standard scrambled eggs, potatoes, and toast) but I have also had their chicken quesadillas which are pretty good. They have a huge outdoor seating area, which is where I usually sit as it gets way too loud indoors. My little warning is about the service. The servers are awesome, very friendly, however, if you go during a busy time (i.e. noon on a Saturday), you might be waiting a while so be patient. Dog friendly in the outdoor seating as well. I've seen all sizes of dogs, too, and the servers are really cool about it and will bring over a little bowl of water for your pooch. There is only street parking, and on the weekends this can be challenging due to permit only on the residential streets.

“So good we ate there twice!”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

This great cafe was a quick walk from our hotel, but it was the breakfast food that brought us back! First visit I had whole wheat granola pancakes; hubby went for the vegeterian omelet with pesto.  He got the same thing the next day but had them hold the pesto. I switched to a spinach and goat cheese omelet. All portions were generous. Coffee is brewed by the cup, so you can request that the strength be to your taste. Servers were very pleasant and accommodating. FYI, the pancakes were a crispy-style crust .

“Kings Road Cafe Studio City--best breakfast in town”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We had breakfast with family at the Kings Road Cafe in Studio City. It was fantastic. I had eggs florentine--the eggs were poached perfectly, the spinach fresh, the sauce light and delicious. One family member had a vegetable omelet--equally excellent, another had simple eggs and bacon--also delicious. The coffee is delicious and will definitely jump start your day. Absolutely the best place for a fresh, delicious, cooked to order breakfast. Worth as visit.
