Dropped by for a late brunch, not the most stylish of Cafes but the good service and pleasant attitude of all the staff really made a difference and they do serve a pretty good brunch at reasonable prices, hard to fault!

We first pulled the name up and read "burger spot" so WOW were we amazed when we arrived to find a master mixologist, a menu that boasted 3 full pages each of burgers, salads, and more individual french toast recipes than I ever thought I could drool over! This spot absolutely blew me away! The cheerful decor was enough to... More

I had the Peach Melba French Toast. 2 "croissant" French toasts, caramelized peaches, vanilla ice cream drizzled with melba sauce. It was excellent. The coffee was also very good.

We normally go to 26 Beach for their fabulous brunch when we are in LA. There is usually a very long line to get in. Tonight, we went for birthday dinner with a large party. This wasn't our first choice since we don't normally think of this place for dinner, but the restaurant my son chose for dinner was closed.... More

OMG - the most insanely deliciously decadent brunch menu. Not for the faint of heart! Prepare for total carb and sugar overload, so worth it! And the coffee was good and robust and the service was great.

Looking for a new take on a traditional burger? Try 26 Beach! Bombay, Thai, Classic Blue, PB&J, etc. Over 20 different choices on the classic burger theme. Innovative, culinary delight. Simply an amazing casual, cozy spot with great wine and beer selection. Definitely worth a try for the burger connoisseur.

There's a great variety to the menu and if you like French toast, they have amazing creations. It's pricey though, and they are very clear they don't allow amendments to ANY order. They also won't split a check so those are little things to be mindful of!

If you have a choice between going here for lunch or dinner, make it lunch. It is just that kind of place. I was there for dinner. Sigh. Menu looks good, but the food does not live up to it. I had the salmon burger for $18 with fries and a side salad. The fries were basically tasteless, and the... More

At $18.50, the Kobe burger ain't cheap, but it's very good. My son-in-law and I each had one (with salads instead of fries) along with a frosty beer. My daughter and niece each had humongous salads which were fresh and beautiful, and the two toddlers had quesadillas. We also shared a nice ceviche. Pretty ho-hum digs.

We visited for lunch and were completely spoilt for choice with all of the options! Typically I avoid restaurants with such a large menu as they tend to lack quality but the reviews seemed good and I'm glad we went. The decor was very kitsch, and we sat in the indoor terrace area which was nice and cool. Our order... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
