This is a great lunch spot if you have time. The menu is healthy and fun. Nice smoothies, but the staff has two speeds. Slow and I don't give a crap. I personally walk by about 4 times per week and would eat there everytime. But once or twice a month is all I can stand because of the wait... More

Just a few feet away from the Venice Beach pier. Delicious and fresh sandwiches, any way you like them. Very healthy, too.

We were quite hungry but not fancying coffees, so, we had the specials of the day; soup and bread, plus and sandwich, soup, and salad combo. Both were reasonably priced and made with care, and were tasty. There were not many seats inside so we sat at a table outside; it would have been perfect but there were quite a... More

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.

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
