While passing through Malibu and needing a place to stop. I happened upon this cafe. From the parking lot you would think that it would be a small and quaint cafe. I was surprised that could seat 110 patrons easily. There is a full bar...More

So friendly and wonderful service; timely and attentive. Mixed reviews on the food. The biscuits and gravy Benedict was a little bland, as was the sauce on the eggs Benedict. The fruit was great. It didn’t have a lot of honeydew and such like most...More

Friendly and happy. I’ve always had great service. On a recent visit I had the best Eggplant Parmagiana that I have ever had, even in the most authentic Italian restaurants. I was unable to click on the ratings for service, food and value. Something is...More

Went for breakfast-food was tasty, good coffee and the cafe was attractively decorated. Our waitress was excellent-really jolly and friendly . Very expensive compared to our usual breakfasts down the coast in Westwood but I guess these are Malibu prices.

Still in sticker shock over our $60 breakfast with tip for two people. Had the choc/nut pancakes. Good, but too rich for me. Daughter had a Bloody Mary. Said it was ok.

Our dinner was tasty enough--not the best we've ever had, but ok. The waiter wasn't friendly and didn't come by often. The waiter really tainted our experience. We won't be going back. There are too many other places to eat in Malibu.

Yes, as far as I can recall you can modify a few dishes. When I got a burger I asked it plain; cheese and beef only and they were ok with it ;) I'm not aware of any gluten free menus tho.
