We stayed at the Lowes Hotel on vacation and had breakfast twice here. Service was friendly and prompt. Coffee was served quickly. The food was very good. Recommend the traditional eggs Benedict and for sure the home granola yogurt dish. Prices are reasonable.

Christmas day brunch for small family. Good selection but they have much more for their Easter offering. The usual omelette and carved meat stations with bakery & salad options. Beautiful view across the water.

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
