I stumbled upon Cole's after rejecting the Clifton Cafeteria and looking for the Nickle Diner. Was lucky enough to get a seat at the bar for happy hour on Friday evening. Nice collection of craft beer on tap and a nice happy hour bar menu. I had the tasty half pastrami french dip with spicy garlic tots (for only $5) along with a very nice Hef (for only $5). What a find in LA's world of $10 beers. The bartender was fast. The food came quickly and was hot. The bar patrons were congenial. There's no loud music playing. I felt so lucky!
