Creative joy and not to be missed

This is a great place for unusual and fabulous food. Their breakfast selection covers savory to sweet. The burgers are the most creative around and the salads are not to be missed. A real crowd pleaser - I have been here several times and it never disappoints,

Went there with a large party and we were given a private room with a large rectangular table. Lots of lots to choose from the menu! I had a stuffed French toast. There were various types of waffles with fruit on top, etc. beautiful presentation and tasted delicious. A lot of the dishes come with rice and beans so it... More

The dining area was a bit dim and so hard to read the menu. The walls were covered with love themes - think there was a story but couldn't read the menu. The drinks, especially bloody mary's were good. Watch out for the Diablo appetizer - incredibly spicy hot. The steak and duck were excellent. The lab chops were somewhat... More

I ordered the strip steak with chimichurri sauce. The sauce was very nice. The steak was of very inferior quality; tough and impossible to eat.

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... 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 were a group of 10, Manager was not helpful with splitting the bill or taking multiple credit cards, according to her all rules were set in stone and could not be changed, food was not great either, lots of it but nothing really good, our waiter was very sweet. We meet once a week as a group for lunch... 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.
