We were staying at the Travelodge, which is in the same building as this restaurant, so to make things easy we decided to eat dinner here. It was a good choice. The food tasted good and the price was reasonable. I had the Spicy Shrimp...Pasta and my wife had the Vienna Schnitzel. If staying at the Travelodge, check with the front desk to see if they have any coupons for the restaurant. Although we only had dinner, as we checked out the next morning we could see breakfast being served and it looked really good.More

I’ve frequented to the Metro Cafe 3 times before my visit on 10/30/21, where a “manager” named Ivan taunted my wife for asking a question about wait times. Then, a few minutes later after we were seated, Ivan angrily confronted us at our table. While...he jeered insults and provocations, we calmly collected our things, gathered witness statements, and left Metro Cafe for the last time. The food was too below average and over priced to be accosted by an unstable managing staff. We will be following up in a more official capacityMore

The food and service were amazing. The coffee was hot and delicious. Have the avocado toast and try the chicken sausage. The pancakes looked awesome although we did not partake.

We were in LA for the first time after spending a long day driving along the coast. We needed a casual spot to find dinner so we did a quick google search for "cafe" and Metro Cafe popped up. We were shocked to pull up...to find the restaurant attached to a Travel Lodge Motel. We opened our phones back up thinking we were at the wrong place because surely a "motel" cafe would not have all five star reviews. We were wrong.... we were exactly where we were supposed to be. From the moment we were greeted by the most friendly staff to how extremely clean the bathroom was we were in awe. Locals were coming and going picking up to go orders which said a lot about the place. We went for burgers and fries but wish we would have went for the steak because our burgers were FIVE STAR burgers. They were as good if not better than any over priced burger in a fancy establishment we've ever had. Our waitress shared that they are not affiliated with the motel and that they've been there for sixteen years. The best part? They have a full service coffee bar and we were able to get coffees to go for our four hour drive back to where we were staying. Just so excellent!More

The food was delicious! Plenty of food, great service even though they were busy! Pancakes were tasty, spinach was seasoned well, the potatoes were perfection.

Metro Cafe is part of a small motel (Travel Lodge). The eatery is right down stairs with street entrance. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. You don't need reservations. Sometimes there is a short wait. The service is fast and super...friendly. There is something for everyone here. They have a great breakfast, but sadly, it is not all day. But there lunch and dinner items are wonderful. We love their burgers and all of their salads are fantastic. Parking is easy. Have fun.More

Good food and good service. We were able to bring our dog as they have outdoor seating. Only suggestion I would make is to extend breakfast into lunchtime. It was disappointing to miss out on a nice breakfast menu. But lunch was delicious. Will definitely...go back.More
