Enormous dinner portions, wide range of choices

Fun restaurant on the outskirts of Venice with an enormous range of burger choices for all palates. Salads were also enormous: We all brought them home and enjoyed them for another meal.

After finding street parking we entered the colorful, eclectic realm of 26 Beach. The location is actually in Venice, so it needed to be eclectic! The menu had about twenty varieties of French toast. There were also cereals, pancakes and breakfast sandwiches. The distinction here was there is no regular toast. The eggs were either over pasta or brown rice,... More

If you're visiting the west LA / marina / venice / culver city / santa monica areas, come to 26 Beach for a fantastically delicious brunch experience. The feature here is their French Toast! So if you love french toast, you're in for a treat. They have a huge selection of french toast options, from savory to sweet, with ice... More

I've been there for dinner. I've found there fast service, good food, nice staff. I've tasted a burger with french fries.

Huge menu to choose from, but no child options. We worked with the server to come up with noodles and meatballs for my daughter. We both had burgers, one veggie and one salmon burger. Amazingly delicious! Big portions, so come hungry! Breakfast looked amazing too!

We didn't eat at 26 Beach, instead having dinner delivered by LABites. Can't comment on the service, atmosphere, etc. but the food was pretty good. They have one of those menus where it's hard to decided (a good thing but frustrating seeing all those entries you can't get). I got their equivalent of a western bacon cheeseburger with a salad....

Was there for a business lunch. My associate wanted somewhere convenient to the freeway but with beach ambiance. The pink umbrellas always seemed intriguing. Sat outside. So did the flies. Tons of them. Swatting them off the food like it was Bombay India. The waiter staff was the B team. Stretched on serving and slow to wait. I ordered a... More

Okay, this was an amazing find! You can't miss it! Pink grass type umbrellas out front....with a line of people waiting to dine! I had this amazing french toast (more like dessert for breakfast)....challah cinammon swirl bread, topped with drizzled choclate and grand marnier marscapone cheese....to die for!!! And a beer mimosa! I'm always up for trying something new, and... More

Never dissapointed by the food quality and taste. Chilaquiles are very good and, if you like chorizo, the Baja Benedict is outstanding. Service is good but....very long outside wait, crowded and uncomfortable sitting.

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.

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.
