First of all, let me say this place is extraordinarily busy. I live a couple of blocks from the same café in Beverly Hills. The one in Beverly Hills always has a small little line but you could get through it in about 10 minutes or so. I thought the same thing for the one in Santa Monica, right? Wrong!
Firstly, the food is exactly the same and the coffees and teas are organic and delicious. The lines, oh my goodness. They stretched out about a block long. We ordered takeout, sat down with someone else's number to get a seat and just picked up takeout, which was a short 10 minute line to bring to our table. They will not allow you to sit there unless you have ordered already.
It is a wonderful place to meet people as I had a Facebook reunion there and the food was just amazing as always. If you are looking for a short line and a quick meal, avoid this place. Otherwise, you know I'm talking about good food and beverages! And the desserts? I should write another review for them they are so good!
