Bread and Porridge (B&P) is a trendy neighborhood eatery. Has excellent breakfast food well prepared with only fresh "organic" ingredients. It is small in size. Most often very busy. Even when not busy service is strangely slow. Yes they get you seated as soon as possible. Yes they offer menu's and bring beverages as soon as possible. No they don't take your food order promptly. No they don't serve the food you ordered in what would be a reasonable time period. I would think twice about coming to B&P with children. A half hour wait for your food, no matter how good, is soured by the behavior of children unable to tolerate the long wait.

Bread and Porridge is the ultimate neighborhood brunch experience.
Friendly service, nice atmosphere and wonderful old fashioned omelette and healthy side orders. Salads and sandwiches are also very tasty.

I am a connoisseur of this traditional Mexican delicacy, seeking out the best when ever I am not in Mexico. And am happy to report that this version is as good as any I have had the pleasure to eat in Mexico. This street side cafe, boasts a lovely patio, with extremely friendly wait staff and a well thought out menu with the restaurants creed explained on the back cover. The portions here are large, not excessive. The roasted jalapeño garnish and fresh sliced avacado made the dishes presentation an instantaneous classic. Eggs were done to perfection and my side order of bacon was tremendous cooked till just crispy. I will come eat here every time I am in the Santa Monica region it is that good. Do your self a favour, and come have a leisurely breakfast on the patio in the sun, you will live longer!

We wanted to have a proper breakfast in a non chain diner that wasn't full of people 'wanting to be seen' and we were not disappointed. The quality of food was excellent, lovely fresh juices, attentive but unobtrusive service and very accommodating of our request for plentiful supplies of hot milk for our coffee! Couldn't recommend more highly.

The fice of us all had something different and enjoyed everything. My spinach cheese omelet was huge and made with 2 eggs. The potatoes were crisp and tasty. A friend ordered oatmeal. Thenportion was huge and came with fruit, brown sugar and milk. Too much to even finish. The couches are wasted space and packed so close together with the ottomans that you really can't sit on them. better to take them out and add more tables.
