3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

After all the reviews, I was a bit underwhelmed. The food was good, but the veggies were not as fresh as I had expected. Most of the breakfast dishes are huge and can be split between two people.

This was my second time here. First was for brunch around 11am and this time for breakfast at 9am. They have 2 sides to restaurant (a typical restaurant side and a cute open side with colorful umbrellas). First time was on the open side which I like better, this time on other side. There is an extensive and unique menu.... More

Just had brunch at 26 Beach Cafe and I was extremely pleased. We had five at our table, and everyone loved their choices. I got the Chilaquiles, and they were spicy, with crispy tortilla chips, perfectly scrambled eggs and chiles. One daughter got the banana French toast, which was not too sweet, with thick soft bread, bananas, and a lovely... More

My friend wanted something sweet and opted for the Nutella Smores French Toast and I wanted something Savoury so I got the pulled chicken sandwich. The portions... More

Very good food both our dishes were delicious. First thing though make a reservation they take them online or you can call otherwise you will wait a bit as it was very busy when we went it was a Sunday. I had the spicy tuna burger and it tasted hits like the sushi wow my taste buds were blown away.... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
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.
