This is an average cafe on Venice. Had an omelette and pancakes and it was ok. Nothing special but nothing wrong either. The cappucino onthe other hand was bad.

Food was average. The Tostada Salad bowl was halfway filled and was missing the guacamole. Service was better than the food quality. I liked the atmosphere outside. Nothing about this place that would call me back again.

Stopped by here late Saturday evening for a bite to eat whilst we stopped in Venice. The staff are nothing sort then helpful and friendly....and the buzz from Venice Boardwalk helps to make the place. Try the chicken pasta: yummy :)

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
