Never been to PANN's, believe it or not!

Can I get the scoop from you pros? What to get, when to go, and where EXACTLY is it? How far south of National. I am near Centinela and Ocean Park. Thank you so much!

    1. It's up in Inglewood- Centinela curves and zigs and zags around a bit, so it's a bit confusing. Take Centinela to Jefferson, turn left. Stay to the right and take Centinela again. Go past Fox Hills and head up the hill and you'll see Pann's on the left. Quite a few miles south of Centinela and National.....

      1. If you're talking about the Pann's on La Cienega & La've missed nothing. An old "Googie," but that's it.

        Actually, the waffles aren't that bad...

          I thought the milkshakes were pretty good, but the entrees we had were pretty uninspiring. Not bad, just uninspiring.

          There are better coffee shops for food, but the architecture of this one makes it worth one visit.

            have to respectfully disagree.
            the waffle was no better than the ones that can be found in the freezer case at the local food for less.
            the milkshake was awful--very little butterfat, and reeking of artificial flavor. (the milkshake at the counter is much better)
            the grilled cheese sandwich was charred.
            we left almost all of our food on the plates and fled panns; went to dinah's where we got one of their baked apple pancakes.

          2. Just a down to earth coffee shop.

            No real magic, here.

            Look at menu, find something that appeals and order it.

            Chicken Fried Steak is generally pretty good, as is the fried chicken. I also like their biscuits and gravy and the open-faced turkey sandwich.


            1. Their patty melt was outstanding if that's something that you would be interested in.
