The TV Cafe

Two or three times per month I tire of the food at Café Oly and drive across the street to the TV Café for some spicy Mexican fare. From tacos to burritos and menudo, cocido, and posole soups, everything pleases the palete.

If Mexican food is not to your liking, they also offer hamburgers, pastrami’s, fries, and malts. And the display of cakes and pies are very tempting

Located at Olympic and Alameda, the clientele includes the homeless, produce workers, businessmen, truckers, and workers from the Los Angeles Times. Security guards are usually in place, just incase someone starts trouble.

Prior to being called the TV Cafe the restaurant was called Sambo's, and many of the Los Angeles Times truck drivers would stop in for breakfast or coffee after dropping their loads of newspapers.

The staff is always cheerful and seem to smile easily. To read some additional reviews click here.
