This place looks a lot better than it is. At least from the outside. We decided to eat here by default. We were staying at the Cadillac Hotel which is right next door. It was getting late and we were tired of walking up and...More

Food was perfect, so was the coffee. It can feel a little chilly at night - so they turn on tall candle like burners to keep you cosy.- and they provide free blankets if you still feel cold. Creates a lovely atmosphere. The prices are...More

The restaurant's food is average. The food they brought was cold and the beer was warm. So that was not a good combination. The only good thing was the heaters in the outdoor area.

We came across this while walking along the beach (as most people I guess). Overall ok, it's basic dining, but a decent menu. Large portions and a nice selection of beers, Friendly staff and of course a nice view

My family and I chose this cafe at Venice Beach because it is located right next to the Ocean Front Walkway, allowing us to observe passersby and listen to the street music. Not only was the location excellent, the food was superb. It was rapidly...More

Chanced upon the Candle Cafe after a long drive to the beach. It looked busy so we took this as a good sign. Service was really good and the food was better. Highly recommend both the Philly Cheese sandwiches and most particularly the fish and...More

We had a Quick lunch and a fee beers. I had the pulles pork sandwich. It was really tasteful. Overall it was bit prizy compared to Quality and experience.

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
