There are few things better than a classic diner with great all-day breakfast options.

Thankfully, Los Angeles has plenty of great classic diner options

Millie’s Cafe is one place that manages to stand out in the crowded L.A. restaurant scene. 

Millie’s Cafe

When it comes to restaurants, age is a good indicator of quality. Restaurants don’t make it 90+ years without being top-notch. 

Millie’s Cafe has been serving up food made with the freshest ingredients since 1926. Even though it would be easier to change things, they stick to the old-fashioned way. That means food made from scratch and by hand.

They use real butter on the eggs. They use hormone-free dairy products. Also, they bake their bread fresh daily.

Their commitment to quality food and excellent service shines through.



Breakfast is served all day. 

They offer all the classic dishes you would expect; pancakes, waffles, omelets, bagels, avocado toast, etc. 

Personally, I’ve always been a sucker for steak and eggs.

Millie’s has just about perfected the dish. They serve a massive 16oz Ribeye with two eggs, a side of potatoes, and your choice of either a biscuit or toast. 


Like breakfast, lunch is served all day. 

Millie’s menu has a wide variety of sandwiches, burgers, tacos, and burritos to choose from. 

Their tuna melt and chicken sandwich are both extremely popular.

If you’re a burger fan like me, their bacon cheeseburger is well done. 


If you’re vegan, don’t worry, you won’t feel left out. Millie’s has a high-quality vegan menu.

Most of their breakfast items have a vegan version. 

However, it’s their vegan burgers and sandwiches that stand out. They are every bit as tasty as the real things.
