This a recommendation ft someone who used to study in Santa Monica, so we were confident that it would be great. We were not disappointed. The milkshakes were scrumptious. I had the chocolate/coffee combo and it was divine, as were the vanilla and strawberry versions I sampled. The food was plentiful and well cooked. The onion rings were crispy and... More

Had a couple of good breakfasts here while vacationing. The food and service were both good. The prices were strong for a diner, but then again, it is Santa Monica. I'd go back again and recommend it to others.

Breakfast edged out dinner here - in fact some of us opted for breakfast for our dinner visit. Part of this is the early morning rise and shine aspect of the place, with hip service and great food. Avocado toast was nice - more spread than chunks, with a side of bacon. Dinner was fine - this IS a diner... More

They have a great variety of menu items including gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and American fare. Service was good and server was very attentive. Our group had vegan tacos, gf pancakes, their home made quinoa veggie burger, and tuna sandwich. Everyone was pleased with their meals. We definitely will be eating there again.

The menu is the greatest mix of decadent comfort food and ultra healthy delicious offerings. So, angel/devil - they both can eat. The servers are ultra hip but so friendly and efficient. And the prices are friendly.

A very good breakfast , reasonably priced, and served by a friendly staff can be found at a Swingers. The menu is varied and the coffee is exceptionally good.

We ate there before 11am, and on of the items you can order early bird special. This consists of bacon or sausage, two eggs and pancakes or French toast. All for 6.25. Which is a good price in the heart of Santa Monica. The atmosphere is fun. Th e service is quick. They kept refilling my Diet Coke without asking,... More

We always come here for breakfast every time we are in Santa Monica and we are never disappointed. They always consistently have good food and excellent fast, friendly service.

I would not have picked this diner by its looks from the outside, very plain. Inside was a bit different, sort of a late 50's or 60's sort of look. The menu was a typical diner menu but the food preparation was more modern. I had "huevos rancheros" which were excellent.

I would have rated this higher if it hadn't taken so long for our food to come after we ordered. It wasn't that busy at 8pm on a Sunday but we waited around 1/2 hour for our food to arrive. Apart from that, it was great. Friendly service, drinks refilled quickly, fresh ingredients. I had the ahi tuna sandwich, loved... More

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.
