No way this has the "best coffee in Los Angeles". Mediocre food at best. Went for breakfast and it was just across from the Elan Hotel. Would have been better off with the hotel's continental breakfast.

Great menu, fresh food, clean premises and pleasant staff. You can have a snack or huge main meal. Delicious food!

The big breakfast is good value for money. I had good service at each visit (2 mornings & 2 late evenings). Agree decor is in time freeze. This place is a nice change from the pretentious of the area.

A neighborhood diner run by anachronistic people. As long as you don't order anything that requires "rare" or "medium well" or anywhere in between, you'll be ok. Seems the cooks there only know one style: well done. And don't expect a redo. There is an extensive menu, so you should be able to find something that doesn't fall into the "cook to order" category. The wait staff are nice, but are automatons. There is one in particular who needs a major attitude adjustment and if you are unfortunate enough to have her "serve" you, you'll know what I'm talking about. If you're just passing by and are hungry, go for it; just don't order anything less than well done. With low expectations, you won't be disappointed.

This is a nice place to eat a big breakfast when in Beverley hills. I had pancakes and my husband a huge plate that had eggs bacon and pancakes. Everything was very nice if you like full flavors with a lot of butter. On the other hand I didn't see any healthier options in the menu such as fresh fruit. The service was very good and everyone was very polite.
