you'll wait (it's sort of a thing we do), but warning for anyone coming in from outside of CA! Want the 2x2x2 with a little extra? Get the All Star! Eggs sunny side up, bacon, sausage, with pancakes and a biscuit. The bacon was definitely pork belly quality; thick, chewy, and salty. The sausage patties were really good, and the jam that came with the biscuit was lovely. The oatmeal griddle pancakes - which the brunch lists you should get - are spot on. Served with a maple cinnamon butter, they're SO tasty, and small enough you don't feel like a giant ball of flour is sitting in your stomach afterward. I got the pork hash special - ask to make sure all the whites are cooked, but otherwise, it was delicious! They fresh squeeze all their fruit, so get a mimosa!!

If you are looking for a casual place for great meat dished this is the place to go. It's pork chop was just rated one of the best dishes of 2016.

Get the 2x2x2! Delicious and fresh foods straight from local California farms. Their daily specials are great. I got the salmon plate. The ingredients were so fresh you can taste it in every bite! One of my favorite brunch spots in LA! The chicken liver, pretzel bread and 2x2x2 are incredible!

My overall impressions of this place is it's a bit pricier than I'd usually want to spend, but you still gotta try it for the open kitchen and bacon bacon bacon. Really looks like most people pop in here during lunch according to reviews, but I went all full monty and did the dinner one Sunday late afternoon. There were probably 3 other groups here, but with the limited seating, that's almost about 50% capacity. Luckily the bar was completely clear and I found my accoustically sound spot right in front of the stoves. The set up here is tiny and intimate with the open kitchen largely exposed to the bar. All my oo's and ah's would be right in front of the people who cooked it for me. Menu was high up above on a lit up chalkboard with about 10 things written on there.

-=-Duck Oatmeal Grittle-=- This is a sweet and savory mix. Those oatmeal grittle cakes were pretty heavenly with the sweetness already absorbed into it. The grittle cakes looked tiny and unassuming, but each bite was pretty addictive. Mixing in the meat into a bite was odd at first, but you learn to appreciate it if only for the subtle hints of butter.

-=-Burger-=- I am convinced that bacon is the best thing they do here. It's crispy (but not too crispy) and not overly salty either. A single thick piece lay on top of that open faced burger and even with everything assembled on top, I tasted that bacon the most. Patty was moist and the brioche bun was a definite winner. The burger itself was not written on the menu above, but turns out that it's always implied and carried on stock.

This is LA calling, they want a cure for their hangover...the solution, none other then the "Cult" worthy crowd that gathers every weekend around 10:50am to get there foot in the door, as doors open @ 11. First come first served, so come First.
Food is hangover cure worthy, and worth it; so savory and yummy. I am even thinking about it now, which makes me think... I wanna go now! The menu is changing every week or so, but sausage is yum... and oatmeal pancakes is always a staple. As is this restaurant run by two brothers that are curing every now and then...)

A cool little restaurant-- 2 young chefs devoted to charcuterie, locally sourced products and putting out tremendous food with integrity. They do a great tongue Rueban; everything is wrapped around charcuterei. It’s small place with good food with tasty salads, cured meats with bagel chips. It definitely speaks to what I prefer to eat if I don’t want to eat fish. Salts cure is a refined version of Katz's deli and Canters.

#BeStuffed

Salt’s Cure is one of those restaurants that make you feel like you’re not in LA. Perhaps Brooklyn or Portland, but certainly not LA. No, they will not rush you – feel free to linger over your cinnamon-butter-drenched oatmeal griddlecakes – and no, you cannot have egg whites instead of regular eggs, or a salad instead of the sausage. If you’re on a diet, don’t bother showing up unless you’ll be satisfied with a cup of coffee. (Though to be fair, at least the coffee is amazing – it’s French-pressed, and you actually see them ground the bean in front of you). The decadent, freshly-baked cinnamon roll and the crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth biscuits are just like your mom used to make them, assuming your mom was a supremely talented chef. The 2 x 2 x 2, a plate which combines two eggs with two sausages and two slices of bacon, is also well worth the hearty dose of fat. But while the food is heavy, it feels clean and fresh. The chef-owners are purists committed to local farmers, natural ingredients, and simple presentation. If something can be made in-house, they’re making it — bread, crackers, pickles, smoked fish, sausage, bacon, etc. We can only imagine the time and effort that goes into all of this (we get impatient with the microwave), but it certainly pays off.

The one LA-esque flaw that Salt’s Cure possesses is a line. We showed up ten minutes before they open at 11am, which was perfect – there was a crowd waiting outside, but there was (just barely) room for everyone to sit. By 11:20 there was already a wait for tables. A wonderful thing about the service is how laid-back and unhurried they are, but when you’re struggling not to pass out from hunger while waiting for a table, you kind of wish they would stop being so nice.

Parking: You can park in the little lot in front of the nail salon across the street – the spots aren’t reserved for the salon, so go to town. Otherwise, park on the street.
