Not being able to check into our hotel super early we took a walk along Santa Monica Boulevard and found this Cafe for lunch. Delicious quiche, and they do almond milk coffees if you struggle to find those. Although the coffee was like lava, it was tasty.

that cake from the picture is my favorite! I made frequent stops at this coffee when I was working on the area. Patty the manager is very friendly and make all feel like at home. I love the European décor and service. I love the quiche variety and the pastries.

This is a popular place and it is easy to see why once you bite into one of their pastries. I had a lemon meringue tart. If I weren't afraid of embarrassing myself, I would have eaten a second one immediately. My husband had an eclair and liked it, (he has only eaten five in his life), but he gave... More

Lucky find as we were driving down Santa Monica Bl. This is one of the best pastry shops I have ever been in. The espresso was exceptional along with a raspberry tort. Also had hot chocolate with ganache, killer. Apple strudel was outstanding and the blueberry scone was the best I have ever tasted. It was moist not like most... More

I have been going here for more than 20 years. I live 20+ miles away and will go out of my way to drop by. I bought my Wedding Rehearsal Cake from here and any time I want to impress- Emil's is my go to place.

A lovely little spot with good sandwiches and outstanding pastries. Also, nice service. They have several tables for inside eating. Also, outside seating if it is not too hot. Note, they are closed on Monday. Reasonable prices.

All their cakes, cookies, and other pastries are tasty but the fruit tarts are the real star of the bunch. They have the best fruit tarts in all of LA.

Miss Europe? Want a decent coffe and pastry? How about a decent sandwich that is not covered in mustard to hide the mediocre quality of the ingredients? This is the place to be. Small selection of European grocery items (coffee and preserved veggies) but delicious nonetheless!
