I haven’t been here in Years! Stopped by earlier today, got omelette with sausage with the side of potatoes & sourdough bread. Also couldn’t forget about them PANCAKES! Taste like I remembered... I believe even better lol 😅 The plate is enough to share, if you’d like (I know most people don’t like sharing haha) Pancakes are mouthwatering. Can’t describe it. If you’re in DTLA, you got to stop by & get yourself a meal from here!! Their coleslaw is amazing too! I think the parking is free at the moment because there was no valet person. It was Take Out Only. I ordered in person. They’re friendly & I loved their energy! Mask is mandatory 😷

This iconic LA eatery is still doing it like they did decades ago. I first recall going there in the late 50's for a beef dip sandwich with the family. They offer a choice of breads including french roll, sourdough, and rye among others. Meat choices include beef, pork, lamb and turkey. Or order my favorite the NY style Pastrami.You can order your sandwich single dip, double dip or wet.
