Nice lunch

The weather was warm enough that we could eat outside. A little off the beaten path so very pleasant. We shared a endive/Asian pear salad and a grilled chicken sandwich. Both were very good. Prompt service.

On 2 trips to Santa Monica we have used this a s abase for breakfast. You can sit in or out depending on the weather, taking in the sites and sounds of the area and have great food in a laid back environment, ideal for vacations.

I had heard that this place was famous for Huevos Rancheros so I gave it a try. This is a cafe / bar decorated in a modern style and was quite a large place with outdoor eating available as well. I had never had Huevos Rancheros before and thoroughly enjoyed. Cafe au Lait was good and all in all a... More

From arriving to departing staff we're very accommodating, professional and personable. We pick up on these behaviors from colleagues and clients so we had actually commented to each other during dinner how impressed we were with the staff serving us. Nice way to feel the business appreciates you as a customer. Food was above average but nothing popped off as... More

I had dinner here with friends on a recent visit to Santa Monica. There were tons of options on the menu, although a few of the dishes we ordered turned out to be a bit different than expected. For example, the fish tacos ended up being sort of a make your own taco option -somewhat unexpected. The burgers were quite... More

This place is amazing. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, delicious food. Came for breakfast on a Saturday morning while in town on vacation. Was staying at the Loews and it was an easy walk to this restaurant. Would have sat on the patio but a septic truck was servicing the tank right outside and it was unpleasant to say the least....

We wandered into this restaurant for breakfast. We had a great outdoors table, excellent wait staff, and fabulous food. It was very busy and we understand why.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
