Decent food and coffee, with a pretty comfortable outdoor space. The service isn't overly fast, so it's better for a relaxed meal, perhaps a long chat than anything else. A place where people were working alone or in groups, perhaps stopped in while with their dogs for a juice, so it's very chill. Mostly breakfast/brunch foods but does have dinner... More

I have eaten here several times. You order at the counter and they bring you your food. Good selection of sandwiches, salads, gelato, and coffee. The sandwiches taste fresh and always good. Salads too. Good service. It is also relaxing and with outdoor, covered seating. There are heaters during the winter. I don't like restaurants where you can't talk, but... More

We loved Caffe Primo. Walked there every morning for coffee or breakfast smoothies. And stopped by at nighttime for their homemade gelato.

It's not real pasta, it's just a messy amount of overcooked pasta sank in sauce which taste is disgusting... The prices also are too high for the standard of the local. They also made us wait for 15 minutes even if the bar was literally empty (just me and my friend) I definitely would not recommend it to anybody!

This is definitely;y the place to go for a leisurely breakfast!. You can sit and people watch...and enjoy fresh food nicely presented and relatively cheap. We come here every time we go to LA. Doing expect personal service, but do expect good food and excellent value. Typically, the portions are huge so I would recommend you opt for "regular" rather... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
