If your hungry in Los Angelas and on a limited budget then consider checking out The Original Pantry Cafe at 877 S Figueroa St.
Neither fancy nor overpriced this a great little cafe with fair prices, delicious food and huge portions.
There is usually a line to get in around the most popular times (breakfast, lunch dinner). They don’t take reservations, you get in line and wait for a table to open.
If its a small group consider trying to get a spot at the counter if one of those seats comes open and your standing there its yours. Open 24 hours and be sure to stop at the ATM before visiting though as they only take cash. Service is fast and you will leave full and happy.
