    So it's not a business as they lose money everyday and don't try to make a profit.this reminds me of the dude in the Simpsons and this girl/guy from Seattle in real life both had a free store were everything is free.

      Don't let the name fool you. It's actually a bit expensive for what it is. The name comes from the nearest cross street, 5th St. Back in the day, the nickname for the street was "the nickel". There are better diners that charge less, but this place is convenient if you work nearby.

    I drive past it every day and there’s nothing but a thousand homeless people out front, no parking, and a road-diet that bottlenecked the street. I got to admit it is an enticing business that I might try but not with the current disgusting conditions in DT Los Angeles.

    Imagine if the government helped with housing and getting jobs all they would have to do is be drug tested to be helped.... oh wait they do, but this addicts are choosing to be homeless. Don’t feel bad for them or give them money.

    Stop making homelessness easy. That’s what’s wrong with cities like LA. You guys are committing suicide. Your generosity created even more homeless. Why do you want them to continue to live like that? Get a heart.

    We should be funding businesses like this , at least they care about helping people. Homeless are not a different species they are human beings and deserve decency , some of them like living on the streets panhandling and you can’t help them all.

    During the Obama years when I was a heroin addict on skid row I’d go on to Main St and get the homemade pop tarts from the nickel diner. Guess I could’ve gotten them for free but I always appreciated supporting business. Now I’m 6+ off the needle and voting Trump! 🇺🇸🦅 sorry Biden we like to work hard and get nice things then keep it!

    It’s only going to get worse. Plan on homeless people in other states getting shipped to California. This is what you get for supporting Democrats.

      It's already happened. Most of the homeless are not L.A. natives. Some homeless were reportedly told to get out of their hometowns and given bus tickets to L.A. In addition, a lot of them are drawn to the good weather, Hollywood, beaches, and free services that are offered.

      @John Collins Many states who have cold winters give the homeless one way bus tickets to warmer climates in winter...that's how they solve their homeless problem at least temporarily. So it does happen...

      Errrrrr.......no.....the homeless ain't getting " shipped" anywhere. Wherever the homeless are they will reside or travel as they will. I know you dont like that because it will have a negative impact on everyone who exists but that is just too bad. Where did you hear that the homeless will be " shipped" to California? * cue the crickets*
