Been here only once for brunch with friends, but it left an impression and now im leaving my positive comments here. Flake serves good food, healthy options, at a price that is fair for the LA area for sure. I recommend it.

We loved this rather alternative little eatery. Excellent breakfasts and just as good for morning coffee. Great place to sit in the sun and enjoy the real California vibe. Brilliant.

Whoa be us, 2 bike boys who frequent FLAKE every Wednesday morning as part of 20-mile bike ride along beach bike path and then the familiar detour down Rose Avenue, past Rose Cafe/Firehouse/etc to order the best breakfast food in LA beach area for sure...

Fun, cool vibe at this Venice breakfast place...outdoor seating, great menu and cool people hanging out! A little off the beaten path and just off the beach, but worth finding it because everything is delicious!

Great funky breakfast with reasonable prices. Even with an Uber there and back, we saved over $40 in breakfast from eating in Santa Monica. Limited seating, order at the counter, and they bring you your items when complete. The açaí bowls, bagel and croissant sammies...More

This place is a really nice stop for breakfast! I had a cappuccino and breakfast burrito with egg, bacon, avocado, and salsa verde to the side which was lush! This place wasn’t cheap but I’d still recommend a stop!

Loved this little breakfast spot! I can't even remember what I got but I do recall sharing 4 menu items and loving them all! Great for a quick bite but there's also seating so you can linger longer if preferred.

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
