Great Coffee and Smoothie hangout for the locals. Finding a place to sit is difficult so bring your friends so someone can pounce on a table. Smoothies and healthy options in abundance so if you're overwhelmed simply order coffee, you won't be disappointed. This is our regular coffee choice over the Starbucks down the street, and we go to Starbucks... More

Had breaky here while on holiday in Venice - the coffee was one of the best ones we had had on our four week trip. Breaky was fresh and tasty. Would definitely visit again.

The Cow’s End Cafe is a great little coffee shop right near the beach. Just be aware that it is often very crowd, but I am still a fan.

This coffee shop near Venice Pier is where the locals go. They have excellent coffee and also sandwiches and salads. I usually go to Starbucks but I must say that the Cow's End is better. They have a large selection of different coffees and teas.

But they have so much more; coffee, tea, smoothies and a sandwich area w/fresh sliced meat. I usually bring my ESL students here when we hang out at Venice Beach/Washington area.

During a visit to the area, I stopped in one morning for a bagel sandwich and coffee. Service was quick and efficient. Food was good, coffee was great. Took a walk on the nearby fishing pier and enjoyed the scenery and my breakfast. Tables outside the establishment are convenient and very popular with locals.

While staying in Marina del Rey for a conference, I was looking for a place that the locals enjoy at a good price. I came across Cow's End by accident but I was not disappointed. I wanted a light dinner so I chose the breakfast tacos, which had scrambled egg, chicken sausage, black beans, corn, and salsa. They were super... More
