Getting free parking in the Marina is a real treat so Killer Cafe starts out ahead. the place is big and the service is friendly and fast. They have a huge menu and whatever you want they will have. This is an American restaurant, serving...everything from breakfast to steak. It is all good. We love their salads and their pancakes are the best in the morning. I also enjoy their burgers. They really have something for everyone, a vegan can find a good meal here. The place sits right next to the Marina and it is always cool inside and the place is pretty. Have a great time.More

Killer Cafe is a great place to have breakfast or lunch in a picturesque setting. Located in the Marina Del Rey harbor, the patio provides a great setting for a casual breakfast or lunch. The menu is extensive, and the food excellent. I wish we...had discovered this place earlier. We can't wait to go back.More

Good & ample food at reasonable prices for LA. Good service. Lots of natives so must be good. Would return.

Great spot right on the Marina. Solid brunch menu and service was attentive. Free parking is a rarity in the area so nice spot to stop.

If you like your eggs runny when you order them well done. Or if you like cold poached eggs and no coffee refills then this is the place to go.

We were staying in the Jamaica Bay Inn which is very close by and were looking for somewhere to meet up with an old friend on the last morning of our short stay in LA. We had eaten at Killer Shrimp the previous night so...decided to try the cafe in the morning. The food was great - my friend enjoyed corned beef hash with fried egg and hash browns and the husband had a large breakfast with pancakes. Just a muffin for me but it was a good one and the coffee was good, strong and kept on coming. Efficient but not particularly friendly service. Very reasonable cost.More

Visited this place with a friend as we were looking for a place open late to just grab drinks and chat about some things where it wasnt too noisy or crazy. This place was perfect for that. Open all night and with free parking this...is now my favourite diner in Marina Del Rey. The service was great, the serving staff were warm and welcoming and it was very chilled out. The music was also decent. Its located right next to the water side which is also nice. I was mostly drinking hot drinks here and I did try the biscuits with country gravy which was pretty good. My friend tried a breakfast and really enjoyed it. I will definitely be back here. Recommend.More

The specialty is killer shrimp which really is very good. Bread for dipping into the killer sauce. The terrace is casual, big, and fun. Great location.

Had breakfast which was perfect. A bit on the expensive side but if your are sitting outside you will have a nice view over the harbour.

There was a group of four of us that went for brunch. We sat outside and had beautiful views! Their “killer margarita” is apply named. I was eating light and had the fresh fruit bowl. While it was delicious, think twice about how badly you...want fruit because it was $9...I also had a side of hash browns. While they were some of the best hash browns ive ever had, they were loaded with sodium. Never have I been more bloated in my life. All around to was a great lunch! My friends had the “killer shrimp” and they said it was fantastic!More
