Brite Spot Family Restaurant
This restaurant means business: it offers all the American cuisine classicsfrom patty melts to root beer floatsfor consumption at their 50s-style counter or in booths that scream retro diner. There's also the quintessential soup, salad, and sandwich trio of options on the menu, with daily specials to spruce things up. The waiters are a bit glum and constantly in a rush, but on the plus side customers never have to wait for a table. While The Brite Spot calls itself a family restaurant, groups of angsty rock-and-rollers are more likely to be spotted here than rosy-cheeked families. Either way, it's a great, casual place to grab a hassle-free burger and fries at 3 in the morning. Call ahead for hours.
Love The Brite Spot!! I have been going there for a long time. Since a I was a kid. Altough the look and the menu has changed over the years. A couple things have not changed at The Brite Spot. Service is still great! It's a chill, cool place to grab a bite to eat. And the food is awesome! nothing compares.
The Brite Spot is SO great. Long hours, vegetarian options on almost everything. We particularly love the veggie club with veggie bacon and sweet potato fries - man! You can hang out and not be bogged down by people who think they are important on their cell phones. It's laid back and sometimes slow when you're there at peak hours but every place is during peak hours.
And the red velvet cake is BRILLIANT.
GREAT french toast paired with a very TASTY breakfast burritto and a chocolate chip pancake. Yep --- all this past midnight! Such a mix'd crowd dines here --- from the SilverLake hipsters to your occassional trucker. Gotta LOVE it!
I've been going to brite spot for a couple of years now. I Go just about every or other weekend or so. Although I have not liked the rice, and I wish they would taste it, everything else makes up for the bad rice. The atmosphere of the place is just so relaxing. The place also caters to a diverse group of people which make up the communities of Echo Park, Silver Lake, and Loz Feliz, adding to the restaurant's ambiance. Beware of morning weekends the place tends to be very crowded.
This is my absolute favorite after hours restaurant. The menu is out of control and has vegetarian options that blow my mind. I mean really, where can you go in L.A. to get vegetarian chicken fried steak with potatoes, gravy and greens? My midwestern palate swoons over some of their plates. The atmosphere is funky and fun and the patrons are pretty mellow. Parking can be limited, depending when you go, and the service is inconsistent, but this is relatively minor. If you're looking to chill out, eat some veggie meatloaf and blab over coffee, this is the place to be.
