Natural healthy food, and to say that the employees are great is an understatement. They were fantastic, friendly, courteous, loved the whole experience. It was excellent! The apple cinnamon tea is delish, the food was so filling and tasty.

The restaurant has a good location right behind the shore hotel. It resides in a nice mall where a collection of boutiques and other restaurants are found. The food menu was diverse and the food tasted good, and fresh.

I have been to this restaurant many times.Always busy and always good food.At best the service is slow.Fairly often it is inept.Mistakes.Rude servers. Why dose go back? The food, atmosphere and locale. Get your service together TF and you get yer 5th star.

Took my daughter to lunch. Very good service and food. Don't expect traditional food or flavors. If you are vegetarian or vegan you will love. If you like chicken and hamburgers you will love. You need to be slightly adventurous, you will enjoy. Wonderful flavors.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller

I would call and ask them to be sure. They know how well they can segregate the kitchen and if you might be at risk for contamination.
