The food is healthy and delicious. I thought there was no way I could finish the huevos rancheros and ate the entire thing, practically licking the plate! Everything we've ordered there has been good and they have a cute patio.

The ambiance of this place is just... Off. The. Charts!!!! Refurbished to its original glory Highland Park Bowl originated during the midst of prohibition, and the building housed numerous doctors’ offices on the second floor, a pharmacy, music store, and recreation space. After peeling away years of layers, 1933 Group exposed the original façade and interior, refurbished the lanes, and discovered a treasure trove of items, which were refurbished, repurposed, and put on display. Great spot to hang out for food and cocktails with friends it even has a brick oven . The bowling is fun, they have couches to relax on by the lanes and the vibe is festive. The music is great. You can't bring your kids after a certain hour (adults-only) & reserving your lane is a good idea, it can get crowded. Over all a visual feast and a great spot to discover old LA.

Delicious Taiwanese food .The atmosphere and food are comforting. The noodles are absolutely divine and the portions are good. The service is good and when you're ready for dessert, you take special dessert cards that they give you and stick them into the stand. The moment we did that, the ladies who worked there immediately took notice and started preparing our desserts for us. Worth a visit but make sure you get there early because it gets pretty busy.

Great spot to get a cop of joe after shopping along Figueroa's many boutiques or relax and read or write your great novel. The place is stunning, with high ceilings, pretty patterned floor tiles . The drinks are phenomenal too, from your favorite espresso and milk combo to their simple brewed coffee.
