CHARLES PHOENIX LOVES PANN’S COFFEE SHOP – AND SO DO WE!
Our friend Charles Phoenix sent us this video he did for KCET showing off his favorite restaurant in Los Angeles- and it happens to be OUR favorite restaurant also! Pann’s Coffee Shop is like a trip back in time. It has all the swanky glamour it had when it opened in 1958 and the same family still owns and runs it. You’d think a place with such appealing Googie architecture (our weakness!) would have average food at best – but the fare is home made, delicious, and affordable. What more could you ask? The last time we ate at Pann’s, our waiter recalled that Halle Berry worked as a waitress there for a few days when she was preparing for her role in “Monster’s Ball.” Lots of movies have been filmed there. Enjoy the video.
