We stopped here late this morning because we'd left the LAX airport after flying in from Chicago and were 2 hours ahead of CA time and were hungry for lunch!! As reviewed it is a tiny hole in the wall but the people are wonderful and their "fixings" are terrific. We decided to sit outside at one of the few... More

This tiny independent Kafe has fresh, simple, healthy fare (with healthy, delicious, vegan soups made by the owner). Very few tables but a great place to get take-out order and walk about 1/4 mile west to eat on the beach. Love that they always serve a little cookie with my Latte (if I dine-in.... but not with the to-go orders).

This place is a sliver of a thing on Main Street in Santa Monica, open for breakfast and lunch. There are about a dozen seats inside and a dozen seats outside. The staff are pleasant people and the sandwiches are very good. I had a chicken panini, served with a salad and my wife had a roasted veggie sandwich on... More

I was so delighted with this little gem that I spent every breakfast during my stay in LA here. The food is fresh, healthy, affordable, and delicious, and the service is friendly and speedy. It has a lovely outdoor seating area with potted plants, and even a built in cell-phone charging station. I'll definitely be back on my next visit!

We had a delicious lunch at Kafe K - reasonably priced by California standards. Good healthy food with fresh ingredients. We had sandwiches, teas, and a smoothie. The woman at the counter (owner??) was really welcoming and helpful. She gave us great advice on visiting Venice Beach, where to park, etc.

I make it a habit to visit Kafe K a couple of times a week. Great food and coffee (one block from the beach to boot). The owners, a couple, are often there and create a warm and friendly environment. I highly recommend it!!

Had a family Sunday morning breakfast in this small but interesting cafe. Excellent coffee and juice with tasty and heathy breakfast options. I ate poached egg salad which was fresh and satisfying. My son had Nutella fruit toast which was yummy and my wife a good protein shake. Service was charming, young and beautiful. Set in the middle of several... More

I'll give 5 star for quality of coffee and attention to detail. Try making a difference between latte or cappuccino around LA coffee shops even most expensive ones and see what you get. At Kafe K , you will think you are in Italy. They serve all other types of coffee and they will make Greek Frape ( which is... More

Cafe mocha and chai latte were very good. Small coffee place but nice. Had interesting loose leaf teas as well as international coffee beans. Did not try the food but sounded good.

we came here for coffee and were most impressed. Fresh roasted coffee beans, expertly made cappuccinos and espressos. They also had delicious homemade pastries... we try the lunch items, but will on the next visit. Great staff and free wifi, a perfect spot to hang out!
