Wow! This place is an unassuming joint in a strip mall...but totally iconic. There is a reason this restaurant has so much star power behind it. The breakfast was crazy. I had fried catfish (large portion and cooked to perfection), eggs, home fries, grilled biscuit,...More

Casual setting, fabulous southern inspired food. Be warned you are not allowed to leisurely eat and sip coffee since they like to keep things moving. There is always a line, worth the wait. Staff are wonderful as is the food!

The Serving Spoon is a fantastic place to dine at for breakfast/brunch! I have had my eye on this place for a pretty long time and it's been bookmarked for even longer! The procrastination finally stopped this past weekend when I ended up flying into...More

Stopped here after our flight into LA and had a great meal. All of the staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. There are rules in the back of the menu which I found odd yet entertaining. They discourage lingering after your meal since there are...More
