The Brite Spot menu merges dishes from an old-school 60s-style diner with new wave vegetarian dishes - but without the trendy prices. It all comes off as fairly authentic in a City famous for facades. The waitresses remember your name and business and are flexible regarding substitutions. The offerings are diverse 'all-American' from chicken-fried steak to breakfast burritos.

You'll find a mix of business owners, bank employees, the Echo Park crowd and senior clergy from the nearby Episcopal Cathedral. Be sure to get a table by the window to watch the Sunset Blvd street scene. The hearty servings barely leave room for dessert.

The Brite Spot is not consistent, however, and dishes vary greatly in quality. Breakfast is best. The decor is 'leftover eclectic' and could use an upgrade and a clean up. The carpets are pretty bad. Parking is a problem with only a tiny, scrunched-in lot available. Many customers walk to this location. Bottom line: If you are not too fussy or picky, the food is pretty good and is served hot and fresh.

Expensive but pretty good when it comes to Americana.
