This quintessential LA diner has dished up classic American fare since 1924. Literally, straight through, 24 hours a day, since 1924. The likes of Marilyn Monroe and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. have dined at this iconic greasy spoon, proudly reflected in the shop’s prevailing throwback spirit. Since their initial one-room, 15-stool space, the Original Pantry Café has grown to become an official Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument and a staple of late night dining in LA. While navigating their expansive menu of satisfying (albeit stodgy) blue plates, don’t pass up the celebrated cole slaw ($3.60 for a pint). Or, if you’re looking to get your breakfast fix, order up a plate of their popular sour dough French toast ($5.65).
