Teddy's cafe on pico and bundy

  1. For diner food it's on the plus side of acceptable and it's definitely good value but it's nothing that will knock your socks off. Good omelettes, steak fries, turkey club sandwich and burgers. Free parking, friendly service, retro decor, CASH only.

    1. Very ordinary food. I still miss Nuway's! If you are looking for resonably inexpensive (Metro maybe more on the inexpensive side only for breakfast or lunch) and good in a diner like atmosphere then either Pepy's Galley, Rae's Diner or Metro Cafe are all much better choices.

        I believe it is the same ownership as Rae's. Cafe 50's is decent for breakfast.

          Yes , I remember going to NuWays about 1960, best chili dogs in town!

            ok, i will check out rae's ?

            what's metro cafe? is that the diner that has a side line in bulgarian dishes?

            1. re: kevin

              Right (Serbian). I've had their chevapchichi sausage dinner entree before and their Serbian salad. Quite nice. But they have mostly non Serbian food, especially for breakfast and lunch.

          2. Went once and only once (circa 2004?). Forgettably bad breakfast. Sort of like a low-end Norm's, if that' even possible. It is, however, cheap.

              <<like a low-end Norm's>>
              You know, can't talk,something about the very thought of that statement is REALLY, REALLY funny!

                Exactly, hard to picture something more LOW END than Norm's....!!

                  "Norm's" has been mentioned in an early Tom Waits song or two.
