Fresh tasty nutritionally balanced food. Consistently well-prepared meals you can count on to be delicious and satisfying. I return here year after year for their "Real Meal" of brown rice, legume, pickled, fresh steamed, sea vegetables with choice of dressing.

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
