There's No Place Like Home on Hillhurst, Los Feliz

I just stumbled on to their website. What's the scoop on this place? Is this a decent place to have a casual lunch date?

  1. They have decent salads and sandwiches here. Not really a destination place for food, but a very pleasant place to sit outside and spend the afternoon.

    1. Service suffers fom the Silverlake/Los Feliz curse (aka "Fred Eric Syndrome") i.e., not just inexplicably slow and apathetic, but to the point of humor.

      1. the space is cute but the food is barely average. i went with 3 others, and we ordered 5 plates of food- omelette, nachos, mac and cheese, club sandwich, and something else...and we were all disappointed. save yourself and go to alcove.

        1. ghastly. i had the worst salmon salad of my life there - salmon so ossified and overcooked, i couldn't even cut it with a KNIFE. even their fries are terrible.

          1. As I've posted before, we only use it for take out. I think the fries (they're crinkle deals) are indeed perhaps the worst on the planet. A side of fruit is available with all sandwiches though and it is always very fresh and generous. The coleslaw is also edible. I usually enjoy one of the sandwiches--curried chicken is good, on passable sour dough bread. The salads are pretty decent-I didn't like the Mexican salad and have never tried the salmon but the others are fine. The vegetarian here at the office swears by the veggie wrap. The hamburgers are generous and medium rare as requested, if not earth shattering. The delivery service is terrific--very quick, few errors and good packaging. I'm pretty sure the ownership has changed and while there is nothing extraordinary, for work-a-day delivery, Home does a very nice job.

            1. Although we've lived in the neighborhood for 8 years, we've only just started going again to HOME over the past couple of months. The service and the wait were so terrible years ago I just cut it out the "possibilities" altogether. So far, for breakfast at least, things have improved on all fronts and we have been really digging the meals.

                Wish the food was better b/c it is a cute place -- a better alternate is Dusty's (5 mins away, in SL). The food is much better and they have a bar --

              2. Super cute place...but the food is pretty boring. zzzzzzz.

                Go to Alcove instead.

                1. I like the Chicken Pomodoro sandwich. Hubby likes the burgers. Portions are big, so my sister and I usually split a sandwich and a salad or appetizer. And they have a full bar now. The patio is really nice and it is less expensive than the Alcove.

                  1. The service is painfully slow and the food is fine, but mediocre. It's a nice place to sit if the weather is right. Maybe try Blair's for lunch?

                    1. RUN AWAY FROM HOME!. Poor service, worse food, and I was rounded down on my change. I really hate that.

                      1. I have been to Home for breakfast a couple of dozen times and for lunch a few times. The sentiments already proffered by the rest of the folks here are pretty much on point. If you want bacon and eggs, something that is tough to mess up, then you will probably be OK. If you are looking to be dazzled, this is not the place. Service is mediocre. The patio is cool, but the trees tend to dump leaves onto your food. I don't think they have ever been trimmed. Decent coffee. Since I moved a little farther east 2 years ago, I haven't been back. I think I would rather eat breakfast at the Rustic Inn across the street. ©
