I find this place more endearing each time I go. It's starting to become a regular place in the rotation due to the fact that the staff is so legit and cool - plus the food is top-notch for a burger joint. I don't eat meat but they always honor my requests to turn the muffuletta into a grilled cheese and it's totally off the hook! They have a great beer and wine selection which has been lovingly crafted by the owner and staff - just ask them about what to pair with what and you'll get an earfull! Also, the sweet potato fries are tasty and I love the 'Jenga' style presentation! This place is great for a Friday night or early Saturday night supper. Tip: for dessert, get the buttered brown bread gelato....you won't be dissappointed!
Been to Golden State a few times now and I love this place! I don't eat beef or chicken, but they have a great Tuna salad sandwich. I even asked them to make me a grilled cheese once, (muffalta, hold the ham) and they were more than happy to oblige! I also love their beer list - which is totally handpicked by the owner and staff. The vibe is pretty mellow and low-key - great for a Friday night or Saturday evening dinner. The sweet potato fries with aöli are extra awesome!
Discovered this place via Yelp. Phone listed not working (staff told). Very little parking in spot that includes woman's free clinic & other businesses. The food and service were so outstanding I went here three days running. Banana pancakes truly delicious. Specials each morning made it hard for me to decide what to pick. I was not disappointed on any of my choices. Coffee could have been stronger. Great place!
nice place clean, The salads are of great portion size and really fair on price! They have a tons of healthy and vegetarian options, and are really flexible with substitutions. Definitely a great place to go for a healthy meal with co-workers, Don't get me wrong they have some hefty meal options also, a great variety to chose from. The service is really good also.
THIS IS THE BEST ITALIAN RESTAURANT IN LOS ANGELES. THE FIRST REASON IS THE ENVIRONMENT THE ENVIRONMENT IS VERY WELCOMING,RELAXING,FRESH,AND VERY FRIENDLY THE SECOND REASON THE LOCATION LOTS OF PARKING AND THE PARKING IS FREE. THE THIRD AND BEST REASON IS THE MAIN THING THE FOOD THE FOOD IS EXCEPTIONAL THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD IN L.A . I HONESTLY RECOMEND IT!!!!!
Amazing burgers and great beer selection. Favorites are ‘The Burger’ and the Lamb burger. They also make a killer BLT. The fries come served up like a stack of Jenga blocks! Hard to resist the gelato – even after stuffing myself with burgers and beer. Staff is always friendly.
Mauro's Cafe has been open for 16 years now and in those 16 years I have gone 465 times and i have always have been satisfied with the food and the service I honestly recomend this place. Best Food in L.A.
We were living out of Echo Park for 18 months while our house was rebuilt. When we came back, Stories was there. AWESOME. I didn't know that tasteful people opened nice little bookstores like this anymore.
Great ice cream sandwiches. The perfect thing to bring along to dinner parties if you're in charge of dessert. I've had a decent Cubano sandwich here, too, but it's really all about the ice cream treats.
My favorite thing about Stories is the patio in the back! A wonderful place to work, read, and enjoy a coffee on a sunny afternoon. I recommend this place for anyone who enjoys coffee and books :)
