The Original Pantry Cafe has been open 24 hours a day in the same downtown Los Angeles spot since 1924, which proves that if you make delicious homestyle chow, people will keep coming back for more. Breakfast is always on the menu, but burgers, T-bones, chops and even country fried steak and Southern fried chicken are only served for lunch and dinner. No matter what you have as a main meal, be sure to try the Pantry's famous desserts. They serve up peach cobbler, apple pie, custard pudding and cheese cake that all really do taste just like Grandma used to make. Note that the Original Pantry Cafe is cash only, so don't be caught short when the urge for their fluffy pancakes strikes in the middle of the night.
