    Good comfort food

    I've eaten there twice with my son. Once was Thanksgiving last and once a couple of months ago for breakfast. Loved it both times. Going again in about a week for dinner. It's not cheap but the portions are big and the dinners come with their homemade bread and cole slaw. Good for a once in a while downtown LA experience since I live in Vegas!

    miss the waiters

    Everything I ordered was great but the butter was to small and hard. The milk was warm not cold enough, small glass also.

    The best breakfast in town

    I use to go here with my late Dad and it was plain and simple and had this great atmosphere and history - the food portions great, and especially the breakfast - always a line to get in. My Dad went there for about 20-30 years everyday.............He was religiously devoted to going there...not fancy but great service, large portions, and pretty good good ! The people who work there always have a smile and their families have been there for generations ! You got to try it...big pieces of ham, bacon, eggs, toast/bread, lots of coffee, and hash-browns.........yummy !

    I'm sooooo full!!!!

    I ate here once so far, HUGE portions--enough for three people, had County Steak-two large slabs, about a can of green beens (bland), lots of mashed potatoes and gravy, and a medium sized loaf of fresh bread---plenty to take home for later. It was fun to eat here considering the history and original feel to the place.

    A Gem

    As a native LA kid, I had been wanting to hit up The Pantry for many years - recently made it in and was worth the wait. Perfect place to go before a Laker/Clipper game - service was quick and the food was awesome. Had the Baked Chicken smothered in gravy with awesome potatoes and decent green beans. Place is a landmark and look forward to trying some other items. Heard the apple pie is out of this world but cannot verify. Cheers!

    Great breakfasts

    The Pantry has great breakfasts! It's owned by former mayor Riordon and has totally become an LA landmark. The food isn't fancy -- just simple, delicious and reasonably priced. Everyone from the white collar suits to the blue collar joes can be found here. But remember, they only take cash.

    Home Cookin'

    The Pantry's food is good, sticks to your ribs and doesn't cost too much. Added bonuses include breakfast starting at midnight and going until late morning. Literally 24/365. One time I ate there at 3:45AM on January 1st. It was packed.
