Excellent breakfast

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

To my mind it was the best breakfast I have tried in California. I could not say it was a gourmet. But it was a delicious food especially in combination with a family atmosphere just like in the home kitchen.

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.
