A Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, The Pantry (AKA The Original Pantry Café) has been a city icon ever since the restaurant opened its doors in 1924 with one room, a 15-stool counter, one hot plate and a sink. Obviously, The Pantry was doing something right, and this traditional American restaurant is still serving up breakfast favorites and diner classics twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Popular with politicians and business people during the day and hungry after-hours club goers late at night, the cash-only restaurant serves huge quantities of diner dishes from its chalkboard menu, hanging on the wall. Each order comes with sourdough bread and creamy coleslaw, and breakfast is (of course) served all day – try the country fried steak and eggs, bacon and cheese omelet or French toast with sausage for a truly filling meal. The perfect stop for a late breakfast, late dinner or before a Lakers or Clippers game, this historical restaurant has reasonable prices and simple, straightforward food. Small and cozy and doing it right since 1924, The Pantry is nothing short of a legend when it comes to restaurants in downtown Los Angeles.
A downtown Los Angeles landmark, The Pantry claims that it has never closed its doors or been without a customer since it opened in 1924, including the time it changed locations in 1950 to make room for a freeway exit.
