A great local spot on Montana, accommodating menu whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. One vegan dining with us was so pleased with her choices. Staff is always friendly and helpful. Fresh products, and always great specials.

The food was really good, I will go back for sure. The service was great. It's a cute casual environment. Tables are close together so it's not a good place for breaking up with your girlfriend. The portions were good both had generous amounts of chicken and avocado. I think you will be very satisfied with your dining experience here.... More

You can choose from either the breakfast of main menus, which can make deciding a little difficult; Avo Toast or Lox Toast...? Healthy selection of sides available. Service was a little off when we dined but the food was good.

While visiting some local shops we spotted this retro/modern diner. We wandered in, and we were glad we did. There was something for everyone on the menu, from breakfast options to sandwiches and sides. The staff was helpful, the service was quick, and overall, we were charmed. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed. I had the tuna, mom enjoyed an... More

Substitutions are no problem and many sides and add-ons. The overall atmosphere is as a friendly neighborhood busy place. You can... More

I solo'd here for breakfast last weekend. Ordered bacon and eggs over medium toast and o j. Thirty minutes later I was served. The food was tasty and fresh but a half hour to cook bacon and eggs is not worth waiting for. I'll stick to dining at your sister oyster bar.

Thank aresverde

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
