Awesome historical diner that hasn't closed its doors once in decades. Best grilled sourdough bread and bacon you will find in all of LA.

Greasy spoons are the quintessential American experience, and the Pantry is one of those classic dive diners where you'll need a shower after you eat there because your clothes (and your skin) will reek of grease when you leave.

Expect a wait on the weekends but don't be discouraged if you see a line down the block: there will be a security guard directing "traffic" to any empty tables. If you're lucky, you'll get a coveted seat at the counter or in the back next to the window into the kitchen. It's so much fun to have a bird's eye view of the line cooks expertly slinging breakfast potatoes and frying up eggs and steaks.

Once you are seated, a waiter will (eventually) make his way to your table. You place your order and get your food. That's about it. Don't expect excellent service, and ask for everything you may need either when you place your order or when your food is brought out -- speak then or forever hold your peace! When you're ready to go, wave frantically to flag down a waiter for your check. Take your check up to the cashier cage -- it's literally a CAGE -- to pay. Note that it's strictly CASH ONLY so come prepared.

The menu is on the wall so look for the chalkboards to see the specials of the day and the good 'ol standbys. Prices are reasonable for Los Angeles (I'd guess the average check would be $15 - $20 per person), especially considering the gargantuan portions you get. My Philly cheesesteak was light on the meat but came with a mountain of crispy french fries, a soft, buttered bun, and a big side of cole slaw. This is standard American classics done right and served up fast.

This isn't haute cuisine but if you're a fan of diners it's worth a visit, especially late at night. Great for people watching in the wee hours! The Pantry is located within walking distance of popular downtown entertainment venues including L.A. Live and the Staples Center. Also don't miss the guest book on display by the cashier; it's been signed by some famous folks.

Wow! Large portions of food. Sit at the counter and watch the cook make cheese steak sandwiches, omelets and flames coming up under the potatoes. Being cash, no CC here.

Open 24 hours. This old time diner is owned by former LA Mayor Richard Riordan. Best breakfast in town, worth the wait. Service is fast so the line goes quick.
Complementary coleslaw and homemade bread brought to your table first. I'm actually full after that

This is a place I was taken as a child and have not stopped coming. Great place for a meal plain simple and good.

One of the oldest restaurants in Los Angeles. Be prepared to wait in line. Parking across the street.

Such great pancakes. Want a little secret? Rierden's Tavern next door has the exact same menu but without the crazy line of The Pantry.

For a place that never closes the owners of this historic downtown LA diner keep the place pretty neat. Seating is sort of an issue as it is a small restaurant, and the food is great for a Diner. While just slightly better than Denny's the atmosphere of the place does lend to its popularity. I do like the fact that the servers and the owner take a very up-front straightforward approach to serving customers.

Come here before you get drunk, come after to satisfy those drunk munchies and come back for a decent hangover meal, after all they never close.

This place is pretty good after a couple of drinks late at night! Make sure you come hungry because their portions are big! Make sure to try the sourdough bread with gravy! :)

The sidewalk outside the entrance to the Pantry Cafe is often lined with people waiting to enter. To shorten waiting time, waiters sometimes come outside to take orders. Only cash is accepted but there is an ATM. There is almost free, validated parking in the parking lot across the street.

The Pantry Cafe serves traditional American cuisine in a casual atmosphere that is an integral part of Los Angeles's culture. It has been and continues to be a gathering place for interesting and significant people. Former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan now owns it.

The food sucks. And I love greasy food that has been cooked on the same flat top for a hundred years. Maybe I should have gotten a burger. I got breakfast and the potatoes tasted like shit. I feel like I'm the only one that doesn't love the food here. Oh well. .it's a fun experience and I definitely recommend trying it. . Maybe I went there on an off day.

The line is painful but well worth the wait. Gotta love this place after lots of drinks. Oily bacon, eggs, potatoes what every drunk person needs. Strangely my favorite item from here is the one thing they give for free. Their grilled sourdough bread! Just ask the waiter for some country gravy and dip your way to heaven.

This place is a bit overrated. I know it's opened for 24 hours and cash only and it serves breakfast foods... but honestly.

1. The food isn't that good.
2. The prices are kinda high.
3. You can get some shady people late at night.
4. SLOW service

I came here with some friends after a convention event because they needed to sober up (I don't party, I'm the mother hen of the group taking care of them). So they order their food and it takes awhile because for some reason, there are TONS of people there at 1am.

FOOD:
I ordered some coleslaw and sausage.
The coleslaw was amazing, but the sausages were meh. Just meh.

My colleagues got the eggs breakfast meal and the potatoes... were kinda bland.

The saving grace was the bread.

SERVICE:
Kinda slow, but he was really nice and tried to help us. But it was just so slow because there were SO MANY pepple.

PRICES:
High for a breakfast joint, but the fact that it's the only 24 hour place in DTLA. They can be.

AMBIANCE:
Old school diner

PARKING:
Good luck with that.

Now this place is an LA establishment. But I've never been until this past Saturday.

There was a few things going on at LA Live, Kings game and Gabriel Iglesias was performing and it is a Saturday night, however, the line wasn't too bad.

There are two lines - when you are facing the front door - on the right is for the counter and on the left is for a table. I opted for a table because even though I was by myself, between my jacket and purse, I really needed that extra chair for my stuff.

***Cash Only****

The servers I swear have all been there forever. All super nice.

I got the fried chicken - because it's fried chicken - with corn, mashed potatoes and a side of their famous cole slaw. Now i'm still partial to KFC's cole slaw, but this was pretty good. Not too mayonnaisey or vinegary. Fried chicken was good. You get half a bird (breast, wing, thigh, leg). Nice and moist, right out of the fryer. Super hot. The crust was delicious.

They give you bread. I swear its' the same amount whether there is one or 5. Pretty good, pretty sure it's sourdough, but when you are out of San Francisco it's hard to tell.

Parking is a pain. This is downtown after all. It's $20 if you park at the Pantry's parking lot. But even with the stuff going on at LA Live, I was lucky enough to find street parking a few blocks away. After 8 it's free. So I paid my time up til 8. Still cheaper than $20.

This diner has literally been open 24/7 since 1927. There's almost always a line outside, but it moves really quickly.

I had a ham steak, eggs, and hash browns. Good stuff!

Classic L.A. restaurant. Famous for breakfast and the long lines prove it. Best pancakes and coleslaw ever. Open 24 hours. Cash only

I may be the only one on earth who doesn't like Original Pantry cafe and I'm okay with that. Other than the fact that it's opened late, there really isn't a whole lot of appeal to this establishment.

First off, there is a wait and regardless of the weather, the line is outside of the restaurant. We stood freezing in the cold for a while before we got our table. Another down side is the fact that they take cash only. If you want to charge over $15 for a lot of your dishes, you should probably invest in merchant services of some nature.

The food is mediocre at best. My friends and I got a few items and none of them were particularly good. I didn't even eat half of my food. The slaw they serve is also not very flavorful.

The servers are nice but everything took forever from ordering and getting our food. I would rather hit up a taco truck next time for late night grubs.

I would never go here again. I have been here a couple of times before, and I kept telling myself that I would give it another chance. Saturday, Feb 15th, we went in there about 7:00 and still the same crummy service. I feel like I need to be put on a conveyor belt and just go down the line and out the back door. Look at a board for what I want to eat, (prices have skyrocketed). Then some guy asked me what I wanted to drink, and I asked him to bring me two waters to start with; my husband would tell him what he wanted when he got back from the men's room. Two waters were thrown on the table, because the tables and chairs are so close to each other that he couldn't reach us. The waiter took our order, and he never asked us again if we wanted something else to drink; he was in such a hurry that he was gone before we could get a breath to ask him for anything else, plus it was so noisy in there, he wouldn't have probably heard us anyway.Toast was supposed to be with my eggs and hash browns, and I didn't get it. The plates were pretty much thrown at us as again; they can't get to us for the chairs being too close to each other. About 4 tables and the chairs need to be removed. As fast as they push you through, not a lot of money would be lost if you did this. I was bumping into the people behind me, and I am not overweight... Ridiculous. Then the bill was thrown at us; same reason...stretching over others to get to us. We never got our waters refilled; the food came within 3 minutes which tells me that it's already prepared and not prepared when ordered. Hash browns were cold, my husband's potatoes were cold; they tasted like instant mash potatoes. He wanted a cup of coffee, but because the waiters couldn't get to us, we never got to ask them, nor did they take the time to ask us if we wanted anything else, like dessert. I feel like this place is only a tourist trap, because of the fact that it has never been without a customer, it's never been closed, and people just want to be a part of that.We paid $30.00 and I only had hash browns and 2 eggs. We could not relax and let our food settle a few minutes, as we felt rushed. I don't think we were there a total of 15-20 minutes. We ended up having to walk to Starbuck's so that we could sit and relax with some coffee and be able to hear ourselves.
All in all, Original Pantry, Really, guys??? I think your time is up.
