Business breakfast downtown: new possibilities?
I still belong to the same networking group which calls upon me to have a business breakfast with two other members at least once a month. So, are there new GOOD places downtown?
Here's what I know so far:
PDC: Good, but PRICEY,...
Pantry: crowded, noisy, it is what it is...same for Philipe's; neither conducive to much conversation below a yell..
The hotels: generally quiet (except for the Standard), but painfully overpriced...
Nickel Diner: guess it depends on what biz you think I'm in....
The chains (IHOP, Denny's) too depressing; if we at least had a NORM's, or Copper Penny, fer cryin' out loud....
Daily Grill: Doesn't do breakfast anymore.
Botegga Louie: SLOW service, and even at breakfast, mind-bogglingly loud...
So what else is around?
524 S Main St, Los Angeles, CA 90013
Langer's! #80 - CORNED BEEF or PASTRAMI Pancake Style Includes Home Fried Potatoes and Choice of Toast.
704 S Alvarado St, Los Angeles, CA 90057
I was going to say Tiara Cafe but they only serve breakfast on the weekends.
So, how about Pete's Cafe?
Or, Gram and Papa's?
The Cafe at the Colburn School is quite decent for eggs and breakfast burritos and is run by the Patina group. It's quiet and spacious and open for breakfast Tues, Fri and Sat at 7. They have Peet's coffee.
I like to go there and pretend I'm on the set for Fame. I'm always secretly urging the kids to break into a raucous number around the tables.
It's a bit tricky to learn much info about it online, but here's a link to their lunch menu that also includes contact info: http://www.colburnschool.edu/uploaded...
