    Brownie batter in a waffle iron to order. It’s crispy on the outside and gooey in the middle, covered with vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. It’s totally two a.m. food, but it’s amazing. Read more

    Perfect for a late night snack and celeb spotting. I recommend the sweet potato fries with vegetarian chili. There are meal specials every day of the week. Can sit at the counter, cool vintage look.

    Sporting a retro vibe and lots of classic diner appeal, this spot began life as the Hollywood Hills Coffee Shop (and appeared in Swingers) before it was brought back to life in 2001. Read more

    I love everything in your coffee shop! Cakes, coffee, and tea. I have been visiting your shop many times, but still, you didn't fail to change my impressions about your excellent services, guys.

    It lovingly recreates that 1960's diner feeling with its menu and decor, but during the evening it feels a little bit lounge-y. Try the brownie waffle sundae Read more

    The best Turkey Club ever. It's perfect. The Kale salad is amazing too. Come Wednesdays for the Lasagna. I've had almost everything on the menu -those are my picks. PS: Don't park on Vista Del Mar.

    Amazing food and great service! Tina burger was great and sweet potato fries are mixed in. Yummy! Red wine is a Cabernet I think...delish and a healthy pour!

    "You’re growns up and you’re growns up and you’re growns up!" This is the famous coffee shop from Swingers, where the guys eat after their night on the town. Also where Jon Favreau wrote the script!

    The Mac N' Cheese is the best I've ever had so far! Also, try the grilled cheese. I've only had better at the Grilled Cheese Truck. But this one is a close second. All the breakfast is great!

    Mikey Fitz is just the ticket. 2 eggs 2 pc bacon (crisp) or sausage. 3 silver dollar pancakes or 1 pc French Toast. $7.95 I was regaled with bagpipe music intro to a garage band rock musical number.

    veggie chili, no huevos rancheros and mashed potatoes. #nomnomnom. They also have a hot waitress with tons of tattoos that is very easy on the eyes to both men and women. #thatisall

    I like pretending that I'm in the movie Swingers when I'm here (its the diner the guys hang at in). A couple years ago I saw Michael Hall and his now ex wife/sister on Dexter here!

    The 101 Coffee Shop is a fantastic place for comfort food in the middle of the night or morning-after. We love the mushroom taquitos and the Nut’n’Honey shake, made with peanut butter & honey. Nom. Read more

    The location for the film Swingers, this greasy-spoon (by the Dominick’s guys) offers a solid breakfast in a renovated Best Western Plus “Hollywood Hills” hotel.

    Best meals and meeting place in town, staff is the friendliest and you might see some Hollywood celebs. But don't bug them, it's rude.

    If you can finish the mac and cheese and the brownie waffle sundae in one sitting you are a fucking superhero. You are also probably about to suffer cardiac arrest.
