Breakfast eateries in downtown L.A.
Personally, I've never seen the appeal of The Pantry, except that it's historic, now owned by the mayor and everyone goes there. The food, however, is only OK.
For me, I'd rather just get a donut and coffee at Stan's Donuts in the Citicorp Plaza food court. I go for the Reese's peanut butter pocket, or the cherry-cheese donut.
If I ever find a good place serving a hot breakfast downtown, I'll let you know. But after 15 years in SoCal, it's not likely.
