This was my 2nd attempt at eating here. The 1st time I came by the place was so busy that I couldn't get a seat for myself. The place screams yesteryear with no upgrades or remodeling in decades. We came for lunch and it wasn't busy, sat down, placed our orders. We ordered a Melted Pastrami, Reuben sandwich with fries... More

I read the other reviews,everyone and every place have bad days but I have absolutely nothing to complain about. Came here for breakfast. There is a wait but the very animated friendly host works very hard to accommodate everyone so the wait is not as long. He served us water and took our order so that when we did sit... More

The food and the service was great! The place really needs renovations or some sort of change ! It seems very old . They have one shift crew and they are very friendly

This is an old and tired restaurant with some old and grumpy staff. As I sat at the counter waiting to be acknowledged I was amused by the antics of the cook and waiter, obviously having a tiff! One waiter was running the floor and trying to help the counter. He was awesome. Their menu is amazing, breakfast alone is... More

I discovered this place while waiting for my car to be services and was not disappointed. The menu had many of the usual American breakfast options, prepared quickly and was very tasty. Staff was pleasant, coffee shop was small but cute with either counter seating or a few booths. Restrooms were clean. :-)

Fantastic staff- A great team of people that you would expect to work in a small mom-and-pop café like this. Breakfast hit the spot after traveling all morning long. You can grab a table or sidle up to the bar like I did. Skip the chain restaurants and try this spot. Prices were affordable and a good amount of food.

This place always feel like home and if you're a regular, they remember your name. My lunch favorites are club sandwich with fruit cup or breakfast anytime with blueberry pancakes. Say hello to Oscar and crew when you visit. parking is always dicey outside but at least you use a debit card instead of bringing quarters for the on street... More

I've been to Los Angeles many times in the past - but never found this place before. I googled 'best american diner LA' and found Nicks Coffe Shop & Deli. It's small, bustling and just oozes a genuine friendly character from the minute you walk in. I was fascinated by the way the staff all worked together - one big... More
