The title sums it up. Who would voluntarily sentence him/herself to a stew of bad food, bad service, and high prices? We walked in and took our seats. The menu suggested that salads start at around $14 (with the exception of the Caesar Salad, which, without chicken, is a bargain at $10). We waited 10 minutes with our menus closed,... More

Wow, great place all in. I stayed in the Best Western that is attached and enjoyed an amazing breakfast, fast service even when they were swapped. Very cool, 70's retro style and feeling, lots of fun.

Food (breakfast/brunch) was average - no complaints at all, just nothing special, similar to what we had in other places. Service was fast, nice and efficient. We went there for the Diner experience which we had. Would go there again if it fit into the travel schedule when in LA.

This place does an incredible breakfast, the menu is pretty extensive! Plenty of choice and friendly, attentive staff. The best thing about this place (aside from the food!) is the interior - very cool 70's vibe, abit like stepping back in time! We loved it here. Would definitely recommend.

This place is located on Franklin avenue and the food here is good. The customers are mostly local so it has a good atmosphere and very welcoming. I like their orange juice and the service here is great and you only wait for a little time. A good place to have good conversation with friends. I recommend this place.

Been there again after few years, and never disappointed. Food is good and so is the service, which is quite fast considering it can be pretty busy.

I love this place. I have been going on and off for many years. Great place at breakfast, brunch, launch, afternoon tea, dinner, middles of the night munchies. Food is good and nicely presented, atmosphere and trendy locals are bringing together Los Angeles spirit. Waiters have an attitude just like the place. Little pricey but worth it.

This place wasn't bad, but for the prices, it should have been better. Breakfast for 2 with tax and tip was about $40 USD. Burgers and fries for 2 with 1 beer was about $60 USD. The food was good enough, but the service and the price would make me reluctant to go back again. However, it was the only... More

I get the restaurant was busy and probably understand but service was slow and we had to ask a couple of times for a straw and water. The food was a bit below average, it didn't have too much flavour and a bit too tomatoy (had tomato pasta of some sort meal) we had a specific dietary request which was... More

So, I didn't have the silver dollar pancakes because I had my heart set on the waffle. The fact they had silver dollar pancakes was exciting though. Sadly, the food was a bit uneven, my friends ordered the exact same dish and the dishes were were cooked to different levels of done-ness. Service was average and laid back to a... More
