Often filmed in movies, Pann's restaurant is frequently seen on Hollywood films. The most recent I saw was Bewitched. Aside from that, the restaurant offers your typical american fare. We went there at 7am on a saturday morning and we were not alone! apparently, LAX police also like to frequent there for their 2 hour lunch breaks.
Anyway, I had pancakes, eggs and sausage with OJ for $8-9 bucks. I like the typical booth benches and bar seating. It's a classic.
So, if you're picking someone up from the airport early one morning, stop at Pann's for a meal.
