We had breakfast here today and we both enjoyed it. The food was good and the service was spot on. I had the buttermilk pancakes and bacon. She had a plain bagel. We both had coffee to drink. 😀

Very conveniently located by the Santa Monica Pier. Great food. My daughter had the savory crepes and I had the chilaquiles. Very spicy and filling for me. Also, the smoothies were very good. Highly recommend for breakfast.

Our family has a pleasant breakfast before going to Palisades Park and the Santa Monica Pier. Good service, pleasant surroundings, and many good menu choices. Will visit again.

Popular spot so you may have to wait for a table as place was full. Absolutely massive menu with dozens of things to choose from. Good and friendly service
