So I like this place for many reasons: the adorable little waitress who always waits on us, the old booths, the fabulous outdoor seating, the hot cops that come in and sit at the counter… but what really makes it for me is the “Fitness Menu”. Being that we are in California, land of Yogis and the overly conscious self-image, there is quite a large market for healthy dining options. I am no exception to this since I come here only after vigorous workouts. My go-to breakfast is “The Treadmill”: a grilled veggie patty with egg whites topped with copious amounts of Tapatio hot sauce (also very California). Normally this comes with brown rice and choice of toast or bran muffin. Neither toast nor bran muffins are on my healthy eating regimen, so I just skip them. And is it not hilarious that one can get brown rice at a diner? This is why I love California.
Being a breakfast whore, I have never gotten any lunch or dinner items at Paty’s, BUT one of my friends who I recently brought onto the Paty’s train got an omelette filled with their famous chili and beans, which he said was super good. Also I love their turkey patty, which I usually get these days instead of the veggie as I’m trying to avoid gluten at all costs. Very juicy, very delicious. And let’s be honest, when I want to splurge I get the corned beef hash and eggs. Diner breakfast bliss.
So what’s the verdict? Paty’s is totally starving artist – enjoy a great diner atmosphere with great diner food for around $10. I love being a regular here and look forward to many more breakfasts in the years to come.
