The Beverly Hills Hotel is a shining beacon of pastel pink luring tourists and their cameras, but while we recommend you stay far away from The Polo Lounge (the restaurant with the lowest rating in Infatuation history), the downstairs Fountain Coffee Room is another story. This 19-stool counter feels like someone dropped an old-school diner in the middle of a fancy Beverly Hills hotel. The crowd is a mix of whichever TV star is in-house on a press tour, European tourists celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary, and local rich ladies popping in for their regular breakfast of half a grapefruit and the silver dollar pancakes. Sure, the food isn’t anything particularly special (and comes at Beverly Hills prices), but for a fun breakfast in the area, this place can’t be beat.

The Polo Lounge
The Polo Lounge seems like one of those classic Old Hollywood spots, but the food and the scene are awful. There are better places for star sightings.
Musso & Frank Grill
Musso & Frank is an unexpected piece of actual culture along Hollywood Blvd: a class restaurant where it’s impossible to have a bad time.
