Nickel Diner


Nickel Diner opened on Main Street in Downtown Los Angeles last August. What used to be a hole-in-the-wall secret has now exploded with crowds and lines out the door since it was named Los Angeles Magazine’s 3rd best new restaurant.

It’s cute and funky and overflowing with character. The wait staff are friendly and definitely have a cool hipster style that add charm to the yummy comfort food they serve. Along with burgers, sandwiches, they serve breakfast all day long. I love their french fries! The “Smac and cheese” is worth trying and is one of their signature dishes.

My personal favorite… the bacon donut! They give you a little sampler of their donuts, all of which are pretty yummy. The strawberry shortcake one is good too. Here is what the sampler plate looks like:
