Was in the area.. At the fashion district. Decided to stop.. Over rated and pricey for what you get. Service was so so.. Food was OK. Not sure what the hype is about. I had the huevos rancheros.. Not nummy... I will stick to my usual haunts near echo park.. Tacos anyone?

Mmmm nom nom nom. Just had the fifth and main. It's spicy bbq pork on potatoes with two poached eggs. Way too much meat. Needed more potatoes or some toast to offset. Maybe even some tortillas or rice, I know it's so Asian of me. I know, usually it's the other way around. Lol It gets pretty packed during meal times. You have your choice of street parking and walking there. There's not to many spaces to park. I've forgone this place for food or dessert because there's no parking on Main and I wasn't about to search for parking. D Nickel Diner is located in between Sixth and Fifth on Main St in Downtown Los Angeles. They do breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They have some awesome desserts. My favorite was the red velvet cake. The red velvet donut is next on my list. Too bad they were out that afternoon. However, when I told the cashier/owner, she said I can call in right before and they can hold one for me before I arrive. YES!!!!! That is some customer service. I've only tried the bacon maple glazed donut. It's a little meh to me, but to each their own. I have some friends that LOVED it.

You've probably seen this place on a Food Network special. They do a fantastic brunch on the weekends, but be prepared to wait even though there are community tables, it's generally pretty crowded. Try the Maple Bacon Donut or the homemade poptarts, but everything is delicious. Also, if you note the wall decor with the painted menus... those are actually from the beginning of the 20th century. They were uncovered when the Nickel Diner was being built, and they touched them up to add to the vintage feel of the restaurant.

ALL DAY BREAKFAST. The food is excellent and the serves are big. You have to wait for everyone at your table to be present before you'll be seated. No wifi. There's a bench outside to sit on if there's a queue (but it's in a really dreary block of Main street & there's really no other places nearby). The food service is very fast. It's not too noisy either, you could have a conversation without shouting here.
