Happy choice

Went to the 26 as it had a good review and it was just round the corner from where we were staying, and having just flown into LA from the UK, didn't feel like going far. We're seated quickly in a 4 seat as it was nicer than the available 2, and they took our order quickly. The burgers were... read more

The menu is huge and each item is more enticing than another. The food is outstanding and the service is terrific. Great place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Great for kids as well.

I loved the service, the food, the decor... Everything! We were 9 people on a Sunday morning without reservation and we only had to wait 15 minutes until they accommodate us without problem. Service was quick and easy and the food ESPECTACULAR! Highly recommended!

What a neat place to get introduced to SoCal! Big group of 9 was a little tight, but their burgers were worth the wait after a 4.5 hour flight from ATL!

Our friends who live in LA made the reservation based on the recommendation of several people. They gave us the private room In the back (good thing since there were younger children with us) which was very nice. The burgers were unique and delicious. I'm usually not one for burgers but they are known for them and rightfully so. We... More

We meet once a week as a group for lunch... More

What a cute spot! The menu is so overwhelming, Pages and pages of choices. Some odd dishes, Chicken wings and Eggs?? We shared the French Toast with Lemon Ricotta and the Baja Benedict. Both were delicious, and great value. Our server was so friendly and attentive. Long lines outside, not sure why as they take reservations.

Went for brunch with my husband and 2 kudos ages 10 and 14. I ordered the Crab Royal, it eggs scrambled with bacon, cheese and real crab topped with melted cheese over brown rice. Sounds weird but it's sooooo good! Hubby got the 4-A which is scramble but with 3 or 4 different types of sausage, super good. My son... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
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.
