This is one of my favorite places to eat when I am in downtown LA during the day. Its in a raunchy part of LA that is slowly turning around - not as bad as when I first started eating there though. It was kind of more fun when it was...
Its called THE NICKEL DINER for the "nickel bags" that were sold frequently on this street. They also have things on the menu like "Smac and Cheese" , "5 Cent Bag", "Hangover Helper" - you get the drift.
But the best part are their desserts - homemade pop tarts, pop rock mini cupcakes, ding dongs, red velvet cake, rice pudding, maple bacon donuts, etc.
To DIE for!
