A close friend suggested I stop in for lunch. I' ll have to thank him as the menu offering was impressive and the selected couscous was of the highest quality. And what they charge is quite reasonable. I'll come back with pleasure.

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

I don’t know if Le Petite Cafe offers gift certificates. A quick phone call to the cafe would answer your question.
