Awesome pastries and coffee

You see I'm not a coffee lover but my other half is and as this was next door to our hotel he went every morning and loved it. We have eaten here before and I remember the food was awesome and on a weekend it gets busy so go early.

while visiting Santa Monica the end of July, we had breakfast at Amelia's. The breakfast sandwich was good, and the pastry was delicious. The coffee was good but was never really hot. Good place to go....

This little cafe is at the front of the Sea Shore Motel where we stayed. The owners and staff are lovely and the breakfast was delicious. The highlight for me though was the coffee - perfectly made.

A gourmet breakfast and coffee that is wonderful. Would definitely recommend to others. Hours are good, too. They opened at 6am which provided us with early morning hours on the beach.

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 menu is super. The paninis are enough to share for... 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

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.
