The pantry is nothing short of an LA landmark with one of the best breakfast in town. This establishment serves up a good meal at an affordable price. Their pancakes are unmatched along with their Quick Service. If you're going on the weekends be prepared to wait at least 30 minutes before finding a seat. Although this may seem like a long time the breakfast is indeed worth it. If you're in the area this place is definitely worth a morning if you're up to it.

Get ready for very large portions! This very old LA staple has great diner food. Their menus are written on boards that are hung on the walls, prices are decent for the portions you get, and the food is tasty. The wait staff is friendly and very attentive. Depending on the time of day, or if there's an event going on, you may have to wait in line.

Living in Los Angeles for over 30 years, you would of thought I visited this place before. A great and welcoming atmosphere. The staff is friendly and make sure you having everything you need. The food was good and delivered on time. A cash only place, but worth pulling out money to have a great experience.
