Chef Fred Eric was born in 1962, which explains the name of this 24-7 diner on Vermont. The food is a bit erratic, though the breakfasts and the meatloaf are both among the best in the city. Still, even if the cooking doesn't knock you out, the funky decor and the good service should raise your spirits.

If you're in the mood for some pancakes at a classic diner, Fred 62 fits the bill.  Especially if you're in the mood for those pancakes at say, 3am.  For a solid eggs etc or pancakes dish, Fred 62 feels like a welcome respite from the modern world.  The fact that it's open 24/7 is a special rarity in Los Angeles.  Sadly, a lot of their food is overpriced; this is the kind of place where a sandwich or burger isn't going to automatically come with a side, and it's already going to be towards the high end of the price point spectrum.  The hours are spectacular, but only a certain subset of their menu is worth the price.

Fred 62 has pretty much everything. Although this is sometimes to its disservice, what it does right is very, very right. No place more exciting than Fred's at 2am after a night of partying. Their shakes are thick and made with real ice cream, a rarity in the modern days of fro-yo and vegan ice cream. Their breakfast sandwich with scrambled eggs, sausage patty/bacon, and hash browns on a toasted brioche bun is phenomenal and perfect to start your day or end your night.


Fred 62 is has a great diner menu for both breakfast and dinner. If the weather's nice, it's a great place to sit out on the sidewalk and drink coffee. It's also a great place to go for dinner before (or after) seeing a movie at The Vintage.
