Thomas's Coffee Shop-in Albertson's shopping center at Lincoln and Ocean Park Bl. 6am-9pm
Great breakfasts (they burn the hash browns), and fabulous Chinese food/dirt cheap.
Been eating there 23 years-still not a yuppie hangout.
Panchos-just S of Thomas's on the w side of Lincoln.
Just reopened (Blockbuster bulldozed the original) after being closed for 4 years.
Dynamite crisp chicken tacos. Huge breakfast burritos for under $3. And always, lots of fresh chips.
