Culver City, CA 90232
LA Weekly's Description
Metro Cafe is everybody’s favorite secret restaurant, a faux-’50s diner attached to a stucco chain motel that just happens to serve steamed trout on garlicky greens alongside its patty melts and chef salads, white-bean soup flavored with ham imported from a Santa Monica deli. If the owners are feeling charitable, there may be crepes for dessert, special, secret crepes stuffed with Nutella and raspberry jam. Shhhh. Parking in Travelodge lot.
