Traditionally, Happy Hour hasn’t been the best time for gastronomes to find appealing early evening snacks. But at Froma, a small gourmet wine and food shop on Melrose Avenue in the Fairfax district, the Happy Hour menu offers plenty of stellar options.

Tattooed waitresses serve eggs many ways, an assortment of breakfast sandwiches and comfort food for breakfast, lunch and dinner at this hip Los Feliz diner. Open 24 hours, Fred 62 serves beer and wine, along with non-diner fare, such as their “sin delicious” (soba noodles with chinese broccoli and mushrooms). There are cut-outs of old-fashioned milkshakes on the walls, and their version of mac and cheese on the menu, aptly named “Mac Daddy & Cheese Balls.”
