We are here twice because we were staying in Santa Monica for the weekend. We had lunch the first day: pot pie, soup and salad, Cesar salad and gluten-free Mac and Cheese. It was all delicious! The next day, we returned for breakfast: ChileQuiles, gluten-free French toast and a scramble. That was also yummy! Service was fast on both days!... More

Loved the ambiance! It was like walking in to Grandma's kitchen. Staff was wonderful, patient and always ready to top off your coffee. There were 4 of switch different dietary needs. I'm not a big carb fan but I couldn't resist the pineapple upside down pancake! It didn't disappoint! This isn't a place to eat if you're looking for fast... More

We visited this restaurant based on TripAdvisor feedback. The food was good - but a smile with the service would have made it better and doesn't cost much to give - I wouldn't go back.

Our family of four stopped here on our way up the PCH for breakfast, and are we glad we did! Food was great, the setting was charming, and the service was warm and friendly, just what you want in a breakfast joint. Easy to find with lots of parking, and just off the PCH in Malibu, it was a perfect... More
