Great brunch location

At weekends be prepared for a shirt cue, but there are few better locations that M Street for brunch. The food is lovely, but nothing special although there is a nice atmosphere and service was pretty attentive.

Whilst staying in Santa Monica, friends and I went for brunch. It gets quite busy at weekends so be prepared to wait. However we only had to wait 30 minutes. Once inside the service was good and the layout is attractive. We ate off the brunch menu. I think the overall consensus was the place was great but the food... More

Not long off the plane from Australia and we decided this would be our first taste of LA. Great location to get our bearings, lovely outdoor seating and great brunch options. The mimosa's are pretty good too.

Great gluten free options, and an amazing gf cookie for dessert. Very reasonable prices. Outdoor and indoor seating. Gluten free burgers and tacos come on lettuce. This is part of the Lettuce Entertain You group.

This cute little place is a must if you are around. They take Open table reservations which makes it easy to make sure you can grab a spot with your group. There is plentiful outdoor seating and their indoor seating has a nice "old industrial" vibe. It is a little loud so if you need to get your business chat... More

went for dinner around 6:30 and the place was crawling with infants, young families, and children running all over. The servers tried hard but it was tough. The food was totally underwhelming. I had the baby back ribs which were overlooked and tasteless. French fries were cold etc. Not a place for tourists or visitors.

M Street Kitchen is adjacent to the Stella Barra Pizzeria, where I had an excellent pizza and side order of brussel sprouts. A neighborhood place, both the M Street Kitchen and the Stella Barra Pizzeria are great meeting spots with good food. Clientele was mostly local and the staff were pleasant.

Casual but popular spot close to the beaches on Main Street. Great outdoor patio. We ate breakfast and can recommend the breakfast tacos especially. They also have a bakery for a quick snack.
