I was at the Fiddler's Bistro this Saturday morning, on 3rd Street West of La Brea and east of Fairfax. I enjoyed perfect pancakes, bacon, eggs, coffee, a huge, plate of fruit loaded with fresh berries and melon and bananas, and enjoyed fine service all for less than $10 before tip.
My wife and I have been going there for years for many meals, since it's an easy walk from home. I can not think of a single meal which wasn't very well executed and high quality, or service which was substandard. All at very reasonable prices.
This is not a "gourmet" restaurant. There are no celebrity chefs here. They have daily specials but the menu doesn't really change that much. It's not a place for hip people to be seen. It's just one of those few excellent, reliable, solid neighborhood restaurants that are always consistent, and they need kudos.
It is run by two Armenian brothers who came to the US years ago via Paris, and they put a lot of love and care into their food. Some of the better things on the menu:
Roasted salmon, lamb kebabs, any of their soups, excellent salads, and their corned beef hash at breakfast is some of the best in the city. But truly, I have never had anything there which wasn't excellent.
