The Original Pantry opened in DTLA in 1924, making it a legend in its own right - no matter how mediocre the food actually tastes. Come to this greasy spoon on a weekend after the bars close and there’ll be a line out the door. Come here any other time of the week, and experience some of the best people watching in the city. Everybody’s eating giant plates of eggs and bacon and grumbling about the better days. We wouldn’t want it any other way.
