Skip the Starbucks a half-block away. This place is local and it's worth it. Good almond croissant, good coffee, good people.

A very diverse and comprehensive breakfast menu brought us back 2 days in a row. Stumbled on this place and it was a great find. Would go back and take more people. Overall, a perfect spot for a tasty bite right off the beach.

Great coffee. Especially if you are from NZ or Australia. Filled with locals which is always a good sign. Food wasnt good and none of our group finished it. Went back for coffee plenty of times but passed on the food.

We visited for a week and this was our local coffee stop. Coffee is good, great Venice vibe, great breakfast options. Highly recommend you check it out.

I came here after checking out some positive reviews for breakfast spots but I feel like the reviews didn't do it justice. Aside from being cash only, this place was perfect. The food was delicious, the service was very friendly and it is family owned....More

Stopped by here during a very jetlagged walk. Real friendly people, lots of regulars. Coffee was very nice and strong.

Uncomfortable but popular place...lines go out the door...flooring is uneven...people like to hang out here....Food and coffee are tolerable...Not for everyone...

There's a Starbucks a few doors down, but why not try a business with really good coffee that's a local hangout?

Us Aussies take our breakfast seriously, while this breakfast was fine but it was nothing to rave about. a couple of pieces of toast with avo. Good for a basic breaky....not quite what we were hoping for.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
