Great bar in downtown Santa Monica, funky decor, high ceilings, dim lighting and great atmosphere. You can sit at the bar and get a good burger and a beer. They forgot our fries which came late. Complimentary Cookies covered in salt were an interesting touch...More

We enjoyed sitting outside and enjoying the sunny fall day. We shared the kale and couscous salad which was fantastic and I had the salmon over a yummy arugula salad. It was a nice light lunch that stuck with me for a day exploring Santa...More

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

Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
