You are here b/c you like breakfast. Even on a Saturday morning, it's not very crowded- unless there is some sort of event going on at the airport. I've had some of eggs benedict dishes, but they will vary and serve them scrambled (like I get them). Prices are not cheap, nor are they exorbitant; but the eats are good.... More

We had lunch sat out on the patio. The food was good and the service very attentive. Really good value. My husband reckoned that the only way that they could improve it was to put it on the other side of the road so that he could watch all of the planes coming and going from the airport!

Almost as many staff as customers Hate... More

Went for dinner. Polite staff. Not really listening to you. Fancied a root beer - only draft on offer - - till you ask if they have any bottled.........(yes we do.....) food was heavy. Good portions. Should have ordered the salad. Near the airport if that is the location you need. It's dark and a bit shabby on first appearance.... More

Had lunch here with my wife and daughter. I had the steak salad and my wife had the ahi tuna salad. My salad was very good. Fresh and steak done perfectly. My wife, on the other hand, had a salad with raw tuna. She ordered it medium and it came out not even eatable. She sent it back to have... More

We left a busy day at Venice Beach to grab a bite with friends. This was a fabulous choice! We sat outside, which is across the street from a soccer field (fun vibe).The menu has something for everyone. My kids ages 10 and 11 loved the Mac and cheese. Happy hour had some nice drink and food specials. Thanks for... More

We have been to Spitfire many times over the years as it is not too far from our house in Mar Vista, The place is well known to locals and pilots as it is across from the SM Airport. Breakfasts are excellent and very good value but always slow to show up and eggs usually not so warm when they... More

We were sat within 10 miles minutes which was the best part of the experience. Then took 10 minutes & give an order. Wait some more. Friend is diabetic so we finally had to get up to get him a coke. No apologies. Food eventually came after 30 minutes (we're talking burgers). Then had to go inside to get iced... More

Started off the dinner ( which is hoped would be relaxing) with a dirty coffee cup. Waiter (nice) replaced right away but things went downhill from there. Caesar okay, burger brought out without toppings I ordered then when they took it back to the kitchen I got the same burger back (now cold) with lukewarm grilled mushrooms and onions on... More
