Their coffee is one of the finest in town. I have no doubt the quality of products they are offering to each and every client they have.

I love bonding with the family at this coffee shop. The pastries are great as well and something that is worth trying.

The funny waiter keeping my son laughing was not enough to make up for undercooked green beans (the waiter hopefully exlaimed "They're al dente!"), lumpy, flavorless mashed potatoes with inedible over cooked meatloaf and tepid, bland

The barbecued chicken came with the best mashed potatoes and gravy I've had in 50 years, along with an enormous salad and decent coffee, and the chicken proved outstanding. A flatiron steak by comparison seemed rather ordinary. Eggs

I have been there over 20 times (mainly near my workplace), and every time I get the same opinion. The service is utterly ugly and I believe it is because they don't have enough waitress/waitor. Secondly, almost all the time they screw up my order. I take the food and give them 20% tips and still they are able to do that just amuses me. I can see why it's hip, because it is. However, food is expensive, service disgusting and the price is too much. Being across from the Hollywood Tower Apartments is NOT that prestigious. The only thing they got going for that place is they open til 3am and many hot girls and 'metrosexual' guys go there.

I have always loved this place for a good late night bite, and though it is usually pretty packed on weekend nights, I love thsi place. I really hate diners that try to look all 50s. Boring. You know it's no good when Denny's starts

Pros: Interesting ambience and crowd; Ridiculously delicious grub

A fun throwback with dependable food and snappy wait staff, although always helpful when we arrive with our full staff of 15 for breakfast. Oatmeal just like mom's and not too thick, not too thing french fries that area must any time of day.

there is a hint of charm about the cafe, but it is butchered by the atrocious service, whereby the waitresses feel they have to go out of their way to be rude and negligent. For pancakes, there is a small vat that serves as a High Fructose

A typical coffee shop complete with lunch counter. Super shakes and malts and their fries are a mix of russett and sweet potatos...a bit different from the norm. It's always a buzz so if your looking for a quiet dining experience, this isn't the place. Also great for the morning after a Hollywood night.

This place was a coffee shop before they became so hip. The food is really good and the prices are reasonable. Parking can be a bit tough sometimes but you can usually find a spot.

Though the food is really good and inexpensive the 101 Coffee shop is all about ambiance. This is where I take most out of town visitors. It can be a fun star spotting location and is open into the wee hours of the morning. The later at night the better. Looks straight out of the 70's but really worth a visit.

We ate at this place this past weekend. The service was horrendous! This waiter (bearded young guy) gave us attitude the whole time. He miscalculated our bill and even gave us a hard time for ordering mashed potatoes instead of fries.

Wanting to satisfy my good friend in from London with a delicious Hollywood-style brunch I mistakenly thought Cafe 101 could fit the bill. His eyes were moisting over as he hungrily perused the menu while we queued on Saturday lunch time.

I used to love this place before it was sold a few years ago. The "new" owners promptly put 70's style school pictures, creating a scary, dismal, creepy vibe. The food is alright, good breakfast. But those pictures! Scary!
