About the 101 Coffee Shop
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.
