This is a confusing little place that can't seem to decide if it wants to be a deli or a coffee shop. On this day I wanted a sandwich. When you walk in, there is a large sandwich counter with a large menu sign above...More

The Cows End in Venice Beach is a great place to stop and load up on breakfast treats. Super shatteringly good croissants and giantest bagels as well as other yummy pastries. Cant get enough.

Don't let the line deter you, it moves quickly and the counter staff was very helpful. We were able to snatch a table outside and enjoyed some great coffee and smoothie. Good place to people watch.

Delicious coffee and 🥐 crossaints. Great people watching... some outdoor seating. A few doors from the beach and pier.

I just went for a smoothie, but the food looked great too! The smoothie was very fresh and tropical tasting! Cash only place, but they have an ATM inside. I sat at the bar, they had free wifi available. Cute little place!

Skip the Starbucks a half-block away. This place is local and it's worth it. Good almond croissant, good coffee, good people.

A very diverse and comprehensive breakfast menu brought us back 2 days in a row. Stumbled on this place and it was a great find. Would go back and take more people. Overall, a perfect spot for a tasty bite right off the beach.

Great coffee. Especially if you are from NZ or Australia. Filled with locals which is always a good sign. Food wasnt good and none of our group finished it. Went back for coffee plenty of times but passed on the food.

We visited for a week and this was our local coffee stop. Coffee is good, great Venice vibe, great breakfast options. Highly recommend you check it out.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
