Loved the little cafe. Our waiter was a pleasure and the food was really good. I had the serbian breakfast because how often do you get a chance for that in the US? The owner is Serbian so has sprinkled in some of his home country dishes into the menu.

Best food in town! Too bad the hotel attached is disgusting. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Highly recommended

We were looking for a good breakfast spot in Culver City- and based on reviews, we Uber'd here while in So Cal. The picture doesn't show it- but this is actually in a Travel Lodge location. If you want a hearty breakfast - this will do. If you want some atmosphere - not so much. I'm willing to give up... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Culver City, bar-none. The food is excellent (get the goulash or the oso buco!) and the service is great. The owners are always around and happy to chat with guests and they make you feel like part of their family. The style is Central European with homemade pastas. I have never been disappointed and...

Love this place, great for brunch (try the french toast!) and Dinner. They serve probably my favorite dish on the west side -- Chicken Bolognese. It is THE BEST! Also, our sever Ron was super attentive and great to talk to with tips for other things in the area. Thanks Ron!

We were literally just passing through Culver City and stopped in the Metro café quite by chance. The service was great, the food delicious, and the menu choices plentiful. Great lunch.

The Metro Cafe has lots of breakfast options. I went with several friends and we all enjoyed our meal. Started with fresh squeezed orange juice - followed by the Bern Omelet. The soft egg omelet was on top of delicious chicken sausages and spinach. The plate also included a piece of cantaloupe, potatoes, and toast - way too much! A... More

We have gone here many times and have always been pleased. I love the goulash. The brunch offers an extraordinary French toast dish.

Nice small cafe that is very popular with locals despite it catering to the Travelodge guests as it is surrounded by the hotel. We had a large group for breakfast and staff was fast, attentive and very appreciative of our business. From omelettes to over easy eggs, all were well prepared and the bright orange yolks were enjoyed by all.... More
