Fixtures and fittings
The window is decorated with mannequin heads including TV chef Guy Fieri and a Marie Antoinette. Some of the light fixtures are floor lamps glued upside down to the ceiling. The restaurant occupies the site of a long-forgotten diner, hand-painted wall menus with prices last current in the late 1940s.
The Los Angeles Times guide refers to the restaurant as a "trendy new diner" that is "located on a historic stretch of Main Street between Fifth and Sixth streets." and claim that "Inside you're greeted with a picture-perfect model of a pre-WWII-era diner. High ceilings, vintage wallpaper, wooden tables, scuffed tile floors, cushy red leather booths and an old-school, lunch counter-style open kitchen make for a historically sentimental scene."  and also say that "The Nickel dishes up a big helping of downtown L.A."
