Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great place this is. Went here mainly as it has gluten free options and it was local to where we were staying. Breakfast here was superb, service attentive and great price. Gluten free pancakes and waffles were the best we have had. Rate...this place very highly.More

The best breakfast and even better service I have had in a long time! We enjoyed everything from the little ally way and outback warm/covered seating to the food. This is one of the few times my wife and I have gone out of our...way to offer an extra tip to the staff. KEEP IT UP!!More

This place is the worst service I have received whilst been in L.A. The food isn’t bad however the service of the staff is ridiculous, so rude and unprofessional. One of the staff members from the moment we sat down was rude and ignorant to...me and my mum, she did not serve us and left is waiting for someone else to serve us however welcomed guests who came in after us. I’m not sure if it is a racial thing as I come from an Indian background but the attitude of this young women was disgusting to a point we felt uncomfortable and just left. This individual is ruining the reputation of the business and they really should look into client satisfaction as they do not know the meaning of it. The women was a young individual with dark medium length hair and was tanned. Not a nice end to my holidayMore
