Cafeteria style- order and find a seat, but great food and great change from run of the mill dining. Everything was so healthy and fresh. Wish they had a location on the east coast!

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

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
