What you say about the Original Pantry. You will never leave that place hungry. Hardy breakfast 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Short ribs are tender and tasty. The meat loaf mashed potatoes the definition of comfort food. The spaghetti and meatballs are better than some Italian restaurants. Make sure you have room for dessert even if you have to share it.

I have been coming here since my father took me there for the first time back in 1980, and nearly 40 years later it is still amazing. We used to come from the San Fernando Valley to come for breakfast or lunch on a Sunday, and it did not matter if we had to wait in line. A few years back, I was in the area for the marathon and after the race, I was hungry and it dawned on me that one of the few things open in the downtown area was the Pantry. I came in and was seated almost immediately, and it was just as good as the first time I went there back when I was nine years old.

Always a pleasure to eat here when im in Los Angeles. Food is excellent, great service. I was impressed with how clean and safe it was to eat here during covid-19. The staff did a great job under these circumstances. Props to them and as always great comfort food.
