Good Food To Go

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... read more

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.

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!
