If you’re headed to the airport from the middle of the city you know there’s one rule: always take La Cienega. But if we had to give you a second rule it would be: stop for brunch at Pann’s on the way. This old-school diner has been open since the ’50s, appeared in too many movies to count, and serves chicken and waffles we always order. They’re definitely not the best chicken and waffles you’ll find in LA, but you feel like you’re on the set of Pulp Fiction, so that doesn’t really matter.

Fred 62 in Los Feliz might be a drunk diner favorite, but it's pretty great any time of the day.
Remember breakfast? The first meal of the day? We found it, alive and well, at John O’Groats.
Suggested by our writers
Canter's is a Los Angeles classic. Come late night for a pastrami reuben and some very entertaining people watching.
It's not every day you want to drive down to Grand Central Market, but if it's for Wexler's pastrami you simply make the exception.
