Channeling the '60s, this funky diner, with a stone wall behind the retro brown leather booths and long counter, is decorated with photographs of Restaurateur Warner Ebbink's and Chef Brandon Boudet's friends and families decked out in bell-bottoms and knee-high socks. The original retro design of this space is only the beginning of a truly classic dining experience. 

The menu combines produce from the Hollywood farmers market with hearty classics. Signature items include Cajun Catfish and Eggs, 101 salad and Silver Dollar Buttermilk Pancakes. Veggie lovers can try the "No Huevos Rancheros," a spicy Vegan play on the classic brunch dish with a scramble of tofu, soy chorizo, corn and peppers. Weekday specials include Boudet‘s homemade Corned Beef Hash and his most popular, Fried Chicken on Thursday's starting at noon. Don't forget to try the infamous Mac and Cheese... Pastry Chef Ann Kirk leaves your mouth watering with Desserts like Apple Crisp, Coconut Cream Pie, Cake in a Jar and the Waffle Brownie Sundae with Vanilla Ice Cream.

About the 101 Coffee Shop


 

History

The 101 Coffee Shop has been a Hollywood landmark for decades. Formerly the Hollywood Hills Coffee Shop (best known for its role in the movie Swingers and most recently the hit TV show Entourage), Warner Ebbink worked for months to restore the space before opening its doors again in 2001. The Coffee Shop, complete with dark wood-grained Formica, sparkling snow-white cottage-cheese ceiling and decorative rock takes you back to the 1960's with its authentic retro-diner details. Ebbink's eye for architectural design combined with Brandon Boudet's authentic home style cooking give the 101 Coffee Shop the heart and soul of a delicious, classic family-friendly Diner. 

Warner Ebbink & Brandon Boudet

 WARNER EBBINK is a native Angeleno whose passion for restaurants extends beyond cuisine into architectural restoration. He was a big fan of Armet & Davis, the architectural firm that designed not only Ship‘s, but also Norms and Tiny Naylor’s. Ebbink and Boudet opened Hollywood’s 101 Coffee Shop in 2001.   After opening the Coffee Shop in 2001 Ebbink & Boudet went on to purchase the historical Rat-Pack hang out Dominick's in West Hollywood in 2004 and later opened Little Dom's in Los Feliz in 2008. 

CHEF BRANDON BOUDET started his culinary career in New Orleans, Louisiana. His Southern influence and Italian heritage create a unique twist on classic comfort food dishes. Boudet moved to Los Angeles and signed on at the Sunset Strip’s Bar Marmont, followed by consulting jobs for Sean McPherson’s other hip venues, including Swingers, El Carmen and Jones where he first met Ebbink. In 1997, Boudet was named Executive Chef at the historic Argyle Hotel. Boudet shops at local Farmers Markets for his ingredients giving everything he makes an authentic freshness. Boudet has been nationally recognized by Bon Appetit Magazine, the Best Thing I Ever Ate on the Food Network & was the winner of both Knife Fight and Chopped in 2013.
