Great place the food is so good no matter what time of the day you go. The outside needs a little remodeling but besides that a great and low key spot

Don't let the outside fool you, although it may be a bit old Rae's a great place for a weekend breakfast. Affordable, great service and excellent food.

The food here is NOT cheap. Don't let the other descriptions dissuade you from coming here. The food is INEXPENSIVE, but it is not "cheap".

Cheap food is the kind you get at Denny's. Who wants to pay $9 for two rubbery eggs and a piece of toast? Not me! That's why I go to Rae's.

For an amazing treat, order the Bacon Tidbit Waffle. Yum.

P.S. Don't everyone come here all at once, it creates a line out the door.

Even though its a little dated on the inside and out, the food makes up for every dated thing...its very old fashion, but its the old fashion feeling that i like, theres not really anymore old fashion things around but raes makes up for it.

Pros: best cheese hamburgers in santa monica

Rae's is a diner style restaurant and a perfect place to get American breakfast. I love their biscuits and gravy. This place has been used for commercials and TVs because of their classic 50's ambiance! It gets busy in the morning.

It's a little run down both inside and out but that says nothing about how good the food is. They give huge portion and it's cheap.

So first of all a diner is a diner. Atmosphere is usually Zero, food greasy, service mediocre. Rae's however, only suffers from a diner's atmosphere. The service staff is friendly and attentive and the food (at least their breakfast menu) is great. The 2x2x2 (pancakes + eggs + bacon) for $5.00 is pretty much impossible to beat and their chicken fried steak is equally good. Hard to find a place on the westside that 2 people can have a good meal for $17.00 total, but Rae's delivers every time I go.

Pros: Great food. Best Price.

Cons: Ambience. It's a diner.

They only take cash but they will serve you up a good homecooked meal straight from the 1950s for under $8!
Cute building--its been there for 50+ years I think!
I really like it here. VERY low key atmosphere...a place to go when you don't have on any makeup and are wearing last nights clothes...

For those of us who live on the westside and don't have that many great quirky, off-beat options, Rae's is a salvation. With so many chains around, Rae's is a breath of fresh air. Don't look for innovative fooid choices here but instead a really delicious, reliable greasy breakfast that is reasonable and served with love. There can be a wait on the weekends but if you have the luxury, try stopping by on a weekday morning for a cup of coffee and eggs. It cant be beat.

A little run-down, both inside and out--but that just adds to the charm. Rae's is clearly a place where it's easy to become a regular. The food is good (love the pancakes) and the prices are low. The only downside is the service, which can be slow. Still, it's a great place to take a seat at the counter and be a part of tradition.

From the outside Rae's looks a bit run-down and the inside.... well, it's a bit run-down too. However, I enjoyed my breakfast here. It was soon evident that Rae's is the kind of place that attracts a regular following. This was evidenced by the waiters and waitresses calling many customers by name. The food was good, but not exceptional. But they really made up for that by giving you a lot of food for your dollar. Good overall diner, but the service was a bit slow.

If you want a good hearty breakfast please do go to Rae's. I enjoy going here for breakfast. It's a mom and pop's kinda place. Plain Good.

Great location, which has been used in many movies. The food is good and cheap. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed. This is a great breakfast place and the time when most of the people go there.

Pros: Breakfast, Cheap, Atmosphere

I live in Arizona and come out to LA quite often. I can not find a better deal and better tasting breakfast than at Rae's. The 2+2+2 is the best! Perfect eggs, Perfect Pancakes, and All the fat you can want!

Editorial from

This small, turquoise-blue joint is a classic 50's diner---the real thing, not a re-creation like Mel's Drive-In. As at most of L.A.'s good breakfast spots, patrons line up outside on weekends, waiting for Rae's frenetic waitresses to…
