Every time that I visited this coffee shop. I always order their freshly brewed coffee because I like the bitter-sweet taste of it. Also, the cakes that they had was so delicious as well, the red velvet is my favorite. The coffee shop itself was so captivating the setup of the shop and the decor was so cozy. I like this place because it wasn’t too crowded and noisy as well. It was such a great coffee shop.

5 stars for Original Pantry Cafe. Wow! First off, I'm a big history nerd. I LOVE the history behind this place and the numerous photos they have displayed throughout the restaurant. My fiance and I have driven past this place many, many times while driving to a destination in Downtown L.A. and we would always see the long line outside. It piqued our curiosity. So on a sunny, early Sunday morning, we decided to try this place out and have a breakfast date. Payment tip: CASH ONLY! Parking tip: Park across the street and your parking gets validated for 90 minutes. It's a small lot, though, so get there early. There's another parking lot adjacent to it for a flat fee of $10. We arrived around 8:30am and our wait time was only 15 minutes. We were seated and served right away. Wow, is service FAST here! They gave us our order within 5 minutes. We ended up sharing a plate and we were SO glad that we did! We both walked out of there with very happy tummies and a great impression of this ...

What’s not to love! What makes the Patrick Café so amazing is that they grow their own food! The bread is made in house their eggs are fresh from their own farms and so is the bacon! What a great way to get a late night breakfast with a friend and some coffee. Pro tip: there’s almost never a wait for seating at the bar, just walk right up! Enjoy!
