With life whizzing by in the city of angels, take a little time to relish in some of your childhood favorites. We set out to create a list of restaurants and dishes that are sure to take you back to a simpler time, with the help of L.A. Weekly’s list of the 10 Best Comfort Food Dishes in L.A. Grab your fork, pour your favorite drink and dig in!

Connie and Ted’s

8171 Santa Monica Blvd.
For a thick bowl of hot chowder, try Jo’s Wicked Good Chowda’ from Connie and Ted’s. They serve New England, Manhattan, and Rhode Island for the full trifecta. Get a cup, a bowl, or go for a sampling of all three. Their fried clam bellies are also not to be missed out on!

Greenblatt’s Deli

8017 Sunset Blvd.
If you’re sick and seeking comfort, Greenblatt’s will fix you up with one of their legendary homemade soups. Classic chicken noodle soup is always a favorite, but their chicken matzo ball soup is a close rival.

Pizzeria Mozza

641 North Highland Ave.
Nothing says comfort food quite like pizza. Pizzeria Mozza gets the job done and more offering everything from classic Margherita to more eclectic pie. Use their online Mozza 2 Go ordering whenever your cravings strike.

Philippe The Original

1001 N. Alameda St.
From October until May, you can experience baked apple perfection at Phillippe’s or order their apple pie for anytime comfort. But before dessert, you have to trip their French Dipped sandwich, with the meat of your choice dipped right into their authentic “jus”.

Bay Cities Italian Deli & Bakery

1717 Lincoln Blvd.
For freshly made Italian food and groceries, Bay Cities is definitely the spot. But it’s also the spot for a killer beef meatloaf sandwich. Note that they are closed Mondays but you can order through Uber Eats or online.


1014 Wilshire Blvd.
Go back to your childhood with a $5.50 grilled cheese on country bread at Huckleberry. Or get the “adult-friendly” version that features bechamel, pepperoncini, egg and lemony arugula. Either way, your belly will thank you.

Little Dom’s

2128 Hillhurst Ave.
For a solid bowl of spaghetti and meatballs and friendly service, visit Little Dom’s in Los Feliz. Ingredients are always fresh, there’s never a lack of smiles, and their bar selection is definitely comforting.

Joan’s on Third

8350 West Third St. | 12059 Ventura Pl.
Part marketplace, part cafe, and part catering company, you’ll find everything from PB&J to tuna salad to grilled cheese with bacon to fried chicken at Joan’s. L.A. Weekly describes it as “your grandmother’s greatest hits.” (AKA ultimate comfort food)

Can’t get enough of your favorite comfort food? Los Angeles has some of the best ice cream shops —time for dessert!
