Great food, amazing & thoughtful service. My eggs on my benny were a little underdone. But they cant all be perfect! Overall 4 stars.

This is good spot just steps away from the Viceory, the Loew's and the JW for a casual breakfast or lunch. I had the orange/blueberry pancakes with bacon and they were very good.

We were in Santa Monica for 5 days and this was our favorite place for breakfast. We had pancakes & an omelette with fresh fruit. Atmosphere outside was nice. It's a small location so there may be a wait. Overall we enjoyed.

Had a great brunch here. The service is friendly and food arrived quickly. Despite being next to a main road it still manages to be quaint.

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
