The Original Pantry Cafe Restaurant Review

: Former mayor Richard Riordan is the proud owner of this downtown landmark. Those who swear by this place love the charbroiled steaks, oversized pork and lamb chops and daily specials like macaroni and cheese, plus the coleslaw and relish tray full of crispy vegetables on every table. Breakfasts are legendary: enormous omelets, very good bacon, pan-fried potatoes and thick sliced bread. The bakeshop next door is tiny, but the breakfasts are the same feasts and there are sticky buns, cinnamon rolls and brownies. This place is worth a visit for a taste of L.A. history.
