Soups Like Your Italian Nana Made

Amelia's daily homemade soups almost always sell out because she makes them with the best ingredients from her Italian family recipes and with love. My favorite is the artichoke soup. It has the most delicious flavor and is puréed with small bites of the tasty artichokes. Dreamy! Everything on the... read more

We did not realize how amazing the food was here until we were leaving town. Stopped in for the breakfast sandwiches. Absolutely amazing flavor and size. The bread alone was so good we saved some of that for later. A worthwhile stop with extremely friendly service.

Breakfast at Amelia's is always a good start. Sometimes i just get the grilled toast to pile on the jams. The heart Breakfast sandwich is delish and filling. Great coffees to sit inside or out. Ceiling to floor windows bring in lots of light, and make a great spot for people watching. Always a spot I look forward to when... More

My family and I were staying at the motel right behind Amelia's for the week. We ate there 4 times before we left. The food is fresh and delicious! Go on Saturday and try Amelia's frittata! And grab some muffins to go. The family that owns it and works there are simply lovely. They know everyone, and it feels like... More

Good and nutricious breakfast, and excellent coffea. Amelias is situated near the Santa Monica Beach, and is an attractive place to have your breakfast, before going to the beach.

Amelia's breakfast sandwich is a must! Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Fresh quality food and huge portions. Perfect for me and my friend, as we were planning to be out all day exploring. Amelia's definitely a good start to the day. Excellent coffee and orange juice. Recommended!

At Santa Monica for a short stay prior to some business in LA, looking for a place for breakfast, Amelia’s popped up on the Tripadvisor radar as being the 3rd highest rated restaurant in Santa Monica of 567, high praise indeed, with Amelia’s close by it was a good sign. I arrived mid-morning looking forward to being treated to some... More

This little restaurant was located right next to our motel in Santa Monica, so it was easy for us to have breakfast here a couple mornings. I had a vanilla latte every time and it was the best I have ever had! Very smooth and flavorful and I've not had another coffee that matches it. The breakfast is also good,... More

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.
