Philippe’s Etiquette

There is a unique style of service at Philippe’s, that dates back to its opening, in which, lines form in front of the long deli-display counter at each of the “Carvers”.  Each Carver has everything needed to prepare your meal; sandwiches, salads, soups, chili, sides, dessert, beer, wine or coffee. 

 Philippe’s is cash only, which helps keep the lines moving.  If you have a very large order, consider calling ahead.  The plates are paper and the service is fast.  If you should forget that crisp dill pickle or later decide you want a slice of pie and a cup of coffee, don’t worry, there is a line at the right of the counter for all “non-sandwich” items.

 After you have your tray, you can find a spot to sit, either at a community table, a booth, or in one of our upstairs dining rooms for something a little quieter.  The mustard on the tables is “HOT” but it is a perfect compliment to our sandwich.  When you are done with your meal, just leave everything on the table and a busser will be by shortly. 

 Don’t forget, our parking is free while you are dining, not while you visit the Downtown area.  Although the LA area is rapidly and constantly changing, many things at Philippe remain the same.  This does not mean that we are not open for suggestions.  Should you wish to share something with us, please ask for a manager at the candy counter or write in at customerservice@philippes.com.
