Even though the food is simply decent and a bit overpriced given the quality, the dessert is delicious! We got the hot fudge ice cream and it is both delicious and huge. One of the best desserts i've had in a while.

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
