    PayOrPlay Jr. and I had to go downtown early one day last week and made our way there for breakfast; The early morning walk on Main St. was a bit . . . adventurous . . . but the food (french toast, BBQ pork hash) was first-rate breakfast fare and the service and crowd were super-friendly. Nice place!

      My previous post saying I liked the Nickel Diner but didn't really like the neighborhood all that much didn't stick...so this time I'll just say the food is really good. Creative, delicious and the sweets they offer, including the bacon maple donuts, are really wonderful.

        Has the neighborhood improved since your last post?

          Even in L.A. an hour won't have much of an impact, one way or the other...
