Probably the best coffee we had in the US 😍 And the food was amazing. The family service is friendly and we felt they really cared about us 🌹 If you are in the Santa Monica or Venice Beach area, do go there 👍🏻

We came too late, so they were about to close but the gave our kids muffins for free, so the mood stays up till we find another place. Everybody sitting there recommended the place - we will come back!

Initial thoughts was expensive due to the prices, however for the quality of food and portion size, absolute winner. The coffee is apparently awesome and much better than the American brand that many love. Absolutely worth popping if you hungry and want good quality ingredients. Oh the owner (I assume) is super friendly and funny. Great spot

Ate a late breakfast here on a Wednesday morning. Enormous and absolutely tasty breakfast sandwich comes with a pile of fresh fruit and delicious toast. Organic jams and fresh coffee completed this amazing meal. A tad pricey, but TOTALLY worth it!

It's a little pricey but when the meal came I saw why. Well worth the money. Every thing was so fresh, hand made. Family owned & operated with excellent service. Very popular with the locals, they seem to know everyone that walked in. I talked with Amelia for sometime, very friendly woman.

We came here twice. Great coffee and breakfast sandwiches, not cheap but good quality food. Very friendly staff, the old guy can't do enough for you, try it.

Excellent food and fast service. Limited parking - go early. Breakfasts are the best and the owners are on site to make sure service is good.

We had a number of really great meals here during our stay. Try the breakfast pie on Saturday mornings. Friendly service and great coffee. We are from South Africa and the owners remembered us from previous visits. We look forward to our next visit!

Thank Yvette B

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.
