Excellent food in a buzzy, fun space. But loud?

Us oldies enjoyed a wonderful brunch period meal there recently. Particularly enjoyed the fried chicken (enough for two!) and the killer pastries and bread. But please; got mid-afternoon when it's hopefully quiet enough to talk to each other.

Went for a 6 mile hike and came here for a post hike meal since we were starving. Our salad trio that we got for the table to share - kale, carrots, and beet salad- was delicious!! Then, I got the breakfast burrito with sausage, and it was the best breakfast burrito I've ever had. The flavors, the mashed avocado... More

Everything here was excellent. Without going into too much detail, this was one of the best cafes I've eaten in in the LA area. They even have free parking behind the restaurant. It was so good that we went back for a second meal.

Went here for a great brunch probably around 11 during the week. It was very busy with all the tables full. You order at the counter so I was pretty sure we were going to be waiting a long time for a table but they have someone who asked us after we ordered if we were going to eat there... More

If you are visiting Santa Monica, you should try this buzzy restaurant: always fresh and buzzy (great atmosphere). Many locals go there as well, so you get to emerge yourself in the Southern California lifestyle. Space is tight and you must order food first before getting a table which was fine to my family (with a little one). Food was... More

My wife, son and I recently had lunch at this Santa Monica restaurant. The place was packed and it took us a while to make our way through the line to place our order. We were not disappointed, however. My wife and son split a tuna sandwich and 3 salads and I got the brisket sandwich. All the dishes were... More

Huckleberry has the most delicious breakfasts and lunches around. It is often quite full and somewhat noisy, but the truly delicious food and courteous, efficient servers make that a minor criticism--especially since we're talkin' breakfast here!

I saw this restaurant featured on "I'll Have What Phil's Having" and it looked good. We were in Santa Monica for an event so it wasn't hard to add it to our travel plans. We arrived at 9:50 and there wasn't a line. The well trained staff greeted us and helped us figure out where to order. The menu has... More

If possible do take out or eat outside. This place gets very crowded and noisy but the food is excellent.

This was recommended by a great friend. Early Saturday hustle and bustle was just wonderful to experience. Had the best huevos rancheros I have ever had!! Simply amazing flavor and quality. An added bonus, homemade fresh and delectable desserts and treats to indulge in.

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.
