Hands-down the best BLT in town. It's not surprising since they call their bacon 'crack bacon'. Seriously - they're not kidding. Great place for breakfast and lunch and I love that they put bowls of dry cereal on the tables while you wait for your food. I can't remember the last time I had Lucky Charms, LOL.

Cozzy and great outdoor area. You must

Cozzy and great outdoor area. You must order the Croissant French Toast...and the crack's called crack bacon for a reason!! Yum!

Not good

This place is not that great, this food was bland and boring. I went here with a friend because we wanted to get a quick brunch. All in all, I would not recommend this place.

Grub has the best croissant french toast. The selection isnt that big, but what it does have is great.

Love Betty

Located in a converted bungalow that has both indoor and courtyard seating, Grub's famed ""After School Special"" includes a gooey grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of their ""Creamy Dreamy Tomato"" soup. I am in no way a tomato soup fan, but Grub's is so flavorful and compliments the melty, tangy grilled cheese perfectly.

As Always...A Great Experience

I had some friends in from out of town today and made sure to put Grub on our late morning itinerary. It's not the first time I've brought some out-of-towner's to Grub and, as usual, I came out looking like a superstar.Food is always great...server's are always smiling and the ambiance always makes me feel like I've left L.A. for a bit.

Trust me on this one. Grub rocks. :)

Friendly, warm service and excellent food.

I work in Hollywood in production and this is one of my regular lunch spots. It's a great place to bring clients. It's not as stuffy as Ammo and the food is better than the Corner. It's fun and friendly and a waiter the other day noticed that I got a new hat. They really seem to care about service and food. And now they have parking down the block...

Well Worth The Drive Across Town

Grub has now become my fav spot, even if I have to fight traffic from the West Side to get there. And I've introduced many friends to it. I've had brunch there twice. The french toast was great if you like sweets for breakfast, but I adored the egg scramble with cheese, tomatoes and chunks of their special ""sweet and sassy"" bacon. The bacon was sweet and sassy and amazing. Had their truffle mac 'n cheese for dinner. It was fabulous. Portions are good size, prices reasonable, menu very interesting take on comfort food.

The acoustics in the dining room can cause it to be very noisy. It's actually quieter outside on the patio.

Wonderful from start to finish!

We just had Sunday Brunch at Grub and were pleased with, well everything! We had to wait maybe 5 minutes for a table (on a Sunday at 1pm.) The host was so friendly, as was our server. The food came out surprisingly quick and it was delicious! We can't wait to go back for dinner and experience the adorable patio at night!

Sub-par service, slightly above average food, pricey cofee, dicey neighborhood.

Went for breakfast on Sunday morning. Waited about 10 minutes for a waiter after being seated, and the restuarant had approximately 40% empty tables (i.e. not overly busy). No one asked if we wanted coffee, whch should be an immediate question for a weekend breakfast waiter. After finally ordering, the waiter had to come back (about 5 minutes later) to verify the food order, because he did not write the order down the first time. After ordering, food came relatively quickly (a plus) and was hot (also a plus). Overall: food-3 stars out of 5; service-2 stars out of 5. The wait staff needs a few lessons in customer service. I will not return.

The best grub in So-Cal!

If you are looking for fanciness and a stuck-up atmosphere, this place is not for you. No ""pasta a la marinara"" or any other weird sounding names. Grub basically sticks to an' All-American' menu but raises it up several notches . I have been to this neighborhood haven several times and I must admit that most of the food is tasty without that artificial taste that comes from prepackaged ingredients. Grub's most outstanding plate on the menu are their famous Friggin' Amazing Croissant French Toast. They are covered in a delicious batter with every single ingredient is a perfect amount; the toast basically melts in your mouth and you can't help but to feel sad they are gone. Of course they were only the appetizer, since our main entree was only waiting for us. I asked for the BBQ sandwich and my friend asked for the Afterschool Special sandwich. Both were delicious and went beyond to what we expected. The BBQ sandwich was specially different, with a tartness that separates the usual sweet bottled condiment to a totally different one that Grub made theirs. The tomato soup was creamy and simply too good for words. I have to say that I have never been disappointed with the food at this restaurant. Equally, the service was efficient and with a reasonable waiting time on the food. We had several refills throughout our long visit the last time, and we simply felt well taken care of. The place gets full during brunch on the weekends, so arrive early to avoid the let-down of a long wait time for a table. Simply a cute little place with excellent food. - An added bonus is that Mrs. Fraser is a sassy former contestant on Top Chef!

A ""Top Chef"" in our Heart!

When we found out that Betty - a contestant on Top Chef - had a place right here in town. We made plans to go and experience it. Little did we know so did allot of other people! But, no matter. We waited patiently in the outside area and spoke with many of the other guests. Betty would come out and say her hellos and chat with anyone who had a question or just wanted to say hi. Pet friendly - the little and a few big dogs were here and there outside. After we were seated, the service and food was wonderful. Timing was just right - even though the kitchen and staff felt they took a bit too long. After we told them we didn't mind and were enjoying the whole visit - we got fresh homemade ""Thank You"" cookies sent to our table after our meal. Prices are good. Atmosphere is just right and the place is not too big to feel lost or forgotten. We will definitely be back!

great spinach scramble

This was my first time at Grub. The food was very good, service was spotty but our nice waitress was overwhelmed since she was the only one working the outside tables on Father's Day! Our order was misplaced, and we waited way too long for it, (over 45 minutes for eggs that take 5 minutes to cook!!) but once it came, the food won me over. I had the spinach mushroom gruyere scramble and it was heaven. the home fried potatoes were perfectly seasoned, but my toasted english muffin was cold when served with the rest of my hot meal. They should have had extra wait staff on Sunday/Father's Day. They should have these kinks worked out by now; where was the owner/chef/top chef contestant? Resting on her laurels? the staff was so nice but clearly over worked-- and therefore the service greatly suffered. This could be my favorite place for brunch if they stepped up the service.

Great and original brunch menu

I really liked this place. They had traditional breakfast items, but with an original twist. The homeade ginger ale was great too!

Frankly it's somewhat overrated

As ""cute"" as this restaurant is, I think it's a bit overrated. Maybe people like it because it's basically a little house-turned-restaurant. Big deal. I ordered the french toast croissants and they gave me three soggy halves ? for 10 bucks they could at least add the fourth half. Every time someone walked by, my table shook as well. The taste of the food was good and the coffee excellent, but nothing extra-ordinary.

Really Unimpressive

After reading Citysearch's plentiful, positive reviews on ""Grub,"" my wife and I stopped by this neighborhood restaurant. It was awful.

The server was unable to answer any questions about the dishes on the menu. My wife ordered a seemingly simple breakfast of eggs-over-easy and strawberries. The whites of the eggs were uncooked/snotty and half of her strawberries were badly bruised.

My salad was very close to something that I could have picked up at Pavilion's in the deli aisle (for half the price, mind you). Either we didn't pick the right dishes or this place is highly and ridiculously overrated.

Average is exactly what it is.

Two stars for atmosphere and the nice guy in the front of the restaurant who does the seating. I give it another star for the food, which was OK, but not great. They put a small plate of crudites on your table which is nice; the vegetables were old which wasn't nice. I ordered a turkey sandwich which was about 8 inches high with processed turkey, thickly sliced (old) cucumbers, cold brie, etc. The idea was good; the execution lousy. I had to toss the roll to eat the sandwich. My friend ordered a hamburger and I think what they do is just saute ground meat (well done) and then put it on a bun. That wasn't bad but it wasn't a hamburger. When I asked why they couldn't cook it medium she said for health reasons. I don't think so. Anyway, I would go back believe it or not and order a salad because they looked good. But stay away from the sandwiches. Atmosphere is great. Service was good enough.
