Stayed at the Travelodge next door, so Metro Cafe was an easy choice for breakfast. Not that it will cover your breakfast, but Travelodge does give you $5/person vouchers for Metro. This was our second stay there, so about 5 breakfasts at Metro and I would choose no other place for breakfast. The food has always been wonderful, service is excellent, wide range of choices and we've never waited for a table. They are flexible and make substitutions as requested. The house special is Pancakes with Sauteed Bananas - very filling and delicious.
Although we have never had dinner there, we did notice the crowds on several occasions, so that's a good sign. I would definitely go back and go back and go back, and I can highly recommend Metro for a reliably great breakfast.

It is the truth; this cafe woke up my homesickness on a first bite. The cuisine is so much authentic with rich flavor and perfect doneness like you could find in the best restaurants back in home country. For all of you, my new countryman, this is something you should definitely try. Ask for chevapchichi sandwich and you will not go wrong. Enjoy your meal.

We ate there 4 mornings and had friend join us 3 of them. Every meal was delicious and plentiful. Service was good but the kitchen wasn't super fast, but worth the wait!

Four of us tried breakfast, all ordering different items. Food was great. Service was good. The location is very popular so go early or be prepared to wait.

This place is as unassuming as a weed blowing down the road. But beneath the minimalist appearance on the street, and the austere decor inside, is a true gem of a restaurant. And this is about as far from a trendy, "organiac" spot. Instead it is a truly authentic European bistro, brimming with intensely flavorful serbian, italian, and continental fare. The owners are right there, serving, saying hello, working the tables, and mingling with customers. Not to be in the way, but instead, as a way of life. This is how restaurants are in Europe - places to be, places to eat and relax, places to talk and have a coffee or a wine. It was very cool. The food was absolutely incredible. We had a goulash dish served with al dente pasta - it just jumped onto my tastebuds. A touch of sweetness, a bit smoky, just enough heat (spice) and very rich. With the pasta to cut it, perfection. My wife had Braised Tofu with quinoa. Light, fresh, and subtle, perfectly balanced and delicious. The next morning we went back for breakfast. Unbelievable. The french toast was so good. Big and thick and sweet. Dripping with flavor. I had a 2-egg breakfast with all the stuff, and again - just really, good, food. We thanked the chef, who once in a while came out, smiling and sweaty. These guys know how to create great food, and make people feel welcome. What a restaurant should be. No elitist attitude. Just cool and relaxed. If you go to Hollywood, veer off the beaten path and dine here. You will be pleased you did.
