Reviewed January 31, 2014

Really charming little restaurant. Food was delicious and the staff were very friendly. I will return whenever I am in Santa Monica and will recommend it to all my friends.

“Bad service can ruin a restaurant!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

Went for breakfast and the food was great! Interesting choices and delicious, however we were made to feel like we didn't matter. Maybe the locals like the this treatment but we did not. No one noticed we were there and a cup of tea took about 20 minutes to arrive. It's a shame because the food was terrific!

Great local breakfast spot. Food was fresh and delicious. Line moved quickly and service was quick and friendly. Will definitely go back next time we are in Santa Monica.

“Great Food at a Local Restuarant”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

The food here is imaginative and great. Love the orange pancakes with blueberries. Many choices.smoothies, wonderfully fresh fruit, specialty omelettes, etc.
This is a small place. A few tables in the building The majority are under an arbor covered with plastic for the Winter. Outdoor heaters keep it comfortable.
We ate breakfast here twice while staying at Le Meridien Delfina. Just a short walk from the hotel.
Definitely a must for breakfast. We didn't have any other meals there.

“Great food for breakfast”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

One of the few restaurants not in a hotel we could find for breakfast that we could find near our hotel.
Quaint atmosphere and quick and great service.
Unique selections made this a place we ate several times.
Try the orange/blueberry pancakes. They are BIG.
