We went there as it looked half decent, and that's all it was. We overheard that it is closing down because the lease has run out, and that seems to have infected the staff with a who cares attitude. Shame because I'm sure it would have been much better in its prime.

Quaint little restaurant with beautiful wooden setting! Stunning pictures dating back to 1925! Food portions to die for! Delightfully prepared and Delicious! Marcel had the sexy omelette.... Not good for my heart when I am dieting. Exquisite in every sense!!!!

I expect more from a restaurant that rates in the top ten percent in Santa Monica, California. I went here very early on a beautiful fall morning after a walk on the beach. There was nothing special, other than the large size, about the omelette, or the tomatoes, ham or cheese I had in it. The orange juice didn’t have... More

We stayed four days in Santa Monica and we had four excellent breakfasts here! Lovely place, very nice, clean and the outdoor patio was very beautiful! The stuff is very friendly.

I didn't realize there are 2 doors so I went thru the one with the bar and sat at a table at the end of the bar not realizing there was a whole other dining area to choose from. Apparently the end of the bar is also where all the employees eat too as there were 3 there when I... More

We stayed in Venice and drove a couple of minutes and happened upon the Omelet Parlor. So glad we stopped in. The place is decorated so beautifully! The food was absolutely fantastic! Everything was delicious. The plates are gigantic. My parents could have shared their food. (But my husband finished off everyone's food.) :) The staff was very friendly. And... More

Until recently, I had been a regular patron of this place for some 25 years, visiting once or twice a month, always bringing friends, and at least once a year a large party when friends or family visited from out of town. The food is fair to middling: They serve fresh orange juice, apple butter for the muffins, pretty good... More

Tried this for breakfast while staying over in Santa Monica. Wonderful pre-WW II decor, attentive staff and great omelets.

I had a great breakfast with a group of friends, portions were maybe a little large for my appetite but the guys in the party loved it. The omelettes are fabulous, creative and cooked well, a great place for kids with a lively and buzzing atmosphere, small patio area and good service. The only negative is a possible long wait...
