After a couple of hours on the nearby beach, this was very convenient. It turned out to be a great meal too. My wife and I both ordered BLTs with turkey bacon (you can have regular bacon as well) on chiappetta bread. The sandwiches came with an abundance of crisp bacon. I also had a glass of freshly squeezed orange... More

Driving down Malibu it's hard to know what's good and what's not. We pulled into a small plaza like mall to grab lunch and stumbled upon "Coogies." It seemed busy and bustling with people. I'll take that as a good sign. Ample seating outside, but a lot of dog owners dining with their pets in tow, which I can do... More

But if it's packed, service slips. It's a great family breakfast/lunch spot and everything on the menus is great. I recommend outdoor seating if it's a beautiful day.

After a very tiring, but exciting surf session in Malibu (it was the biggest swell in years), we headed to Coogies for healthy salads. From the moment we arrived we were greeted warmly by the hostess and by our waitress, who then made our lunch experience a very pleasant one. The chicken and the albacore salads were delicious, freshly prepared... More

First, the burgers are either Niman Ranch beef or bison - yum! The patty melt with swiss & onions on rye bread was really good. The Coogie burger also good. Sweet potato fries so yummy! The white sangria was ok - got a pitcher, but value-wise, it might have been better to order by the glass (very small pitcher). Nice... More

Wilfredo meets you amicably at the door...After being seated in the surrounding ambiance you have to decide on what item to chose off of their delicious menu. Decisions decisions , but never fear it's all good looking fun. You absolutely cannot go wrong with the gluten-free chocolate cake with fruit and chocolate sauce. Even if you have no need to... More

We were driving up PCH after dropping someone off at LAX and were hungry for breakfast. At first we tried Duke's but they are not open for breakfast and then I remembered this place near Pepperdine and dropped in. It was a terrific breakfast. I had the the salmon and eggs along with the zucchini bread. Delicious! I'll definately be... More

Coogies Beach Cafe in Malibu is always fresh and exciting. The food is always fresh, reasonably priced California cuisine and the atmosphere is pure California beach. Service is always good and they have killer breakfasts, too!

I recently went for a dinner at this restaurant and was really impressed. It has a casual relaxed - yet refined ambiance. The staff are attentive and truly friendly (not a common thing for services in Malibu!). They were genuinely interesting to chat with. The menu has an excellent variety of very healthy offerings. This is a great little stop... More

We had a family breakfast here when passing through. Very nice food and good service. In lovely plaza for a walk around. No real views to speak off. Coffee was good.
