We visited this cafe because my wife an I are big fans of the TV show that this was featured in. Well, I have to say this is one of the enjoyable lunches that I had for a long time. The food was good, the atmosphere was excellent, and the people there were the best.

This is my second visit and first review of this L.A. classic. My wife and I were looking for a breakfast option on our route of travel for the day and we stopped in here based on TA reviews. I had completely forgotten that I'd been here before until we walked into the back patio. It's such a comfortable, "homey"... More

The breakfasts here are so good, we went back three times! The ultimate pancakes were the best things I've ever tasted. A must for breakfast

My wife knows I enjoy a good breakfast when traveling so she searched trip advisor for some restaurants close to our hotel that serve breakfast and found Vivian's. I walked a few blocks on Saturday morning getting there a couple minutes before they opened at 8:00 am I sat outside in the back patio area. I was greeted nicely by... More

Really friendly staff, large range of sensibly priced food. Definitely a good stop for breakfast! Menu very customisable, they also offer a solid lunch menu. Don't be put off by the bland front, the patio out back is great!

We became aware of Vivian's while watching Leah Remini's show "It's All Relative" and have "visited Vivian" a few times now. Breakfast or lunch, it's always delicious. The quaint and quiet atmosphere is a plus.

Their pancakes are the best! Everyone enjoyed their food. Parking was easy but could see it would be difficult if they were very busy. Only open until 3. Yes actors do eat there and we spoke to one who has been in multiple movies. Decent prices - it was $65 including tip for four meals and drinks which is great... More

We stopped in on a Tuesday morning for brunch and although the restaurant isn't that exciting looking on the outside we went out into the garden area and found a cute little patio table off to the side. We had 5 different combos - Eggs Benedict, Waffle Plate, Vivians Scramble, 2 Egg Combo, 2+2+2 Pancake Combo with juices and coffee.... More

As part of a family holiday to Hawaii we had a two night stop over in LA. We stayed at rhe Garland Hotel in North Hollywood and found this excellent place using TripAdvisor. The reviews were great and this one just adds to what is a fantastically friendly, local eatery serving wonderful food. We had breakfast there twice and it... More

We recently stayed at the nearby Garland Hotel with our children whilst travelling the Pacific Highway. I found this nearby cafe on trip adviser and I am so glad I did. It was one of the highlights of our stay in LA. Much cheaper than eating in the Garland and so much food for the money! We sat in the... More
