Best breakfast ever. Very Berry and the Peach Melba were a hit. Project a happy thought when considering where your next breakfast will be. You will not be disappointed.

We ordered takeout from here one night and it was delicious. I got a gluten free steak, with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach. I highly recommend this place. Fast delivery, delicious food and accommodates dietary restrictions well.

Several members of our Running Group chose this restaurant to celebrate the Birthdays of two of our members at a Sunday Brunch. This restaurant is located near Marina Del Rey and, I understand, was the former location of The Black Whale restaurant on Washington Blvd. I was pleasantly surprised at the reasonable prices of the restaurant for a Sunday Brunch....

The outside to this area was deceiving - it looked like a normal 'bar/restaurant' on a main street but once inside it told a different story. The restaurant had a lovely private dining room, which then led into the 'indoor' element of banquettes and lots of people enjoying lunch. We then, afer being welcomed by the very friendly staff, went... More

I've lived in Santa Monica/Venice most of my life, and have traveled much of the world... And every time I get off of the plane this place is on the top of my list. If you want great food with a local experience - this is the place!

Really hip sort of place, great service, fantastic menu, fair prices. I love interesting salads - and they do this so well here! 26 Beach Cafe - I... More

A friend of mine took me to this restaurant which is half indoors and half outdoors under a cover which is really cool and I just loved the salad variety. I told my husband about it and he was VERY skeptical, but after going there once, now everytime we are in the Marina Del Rey area, he is the one... More

Nice find. Great atmosphere. Food very good. I don't live in the area, and a friend recommended it. I had a crab/shrimp salad. Excellent. If I come back to the area, would eat there again.

Girls morning with friends for Birthday Brunch. I had heard very positive reviews so we ordered three items to share so we could get a little taste of each of their specialties. The Curry-Eggs-Brown Rice seemed like a strange choice, but was crazy good. We also shared a sweet Ricotta Lemon French Toast that was light and wonderful with the... More
