We were here for breakfast. The facilities are pretty simple but location is good, close to the beach. Excellent breakfast and very good service. Will try their burgers for dinner next time.

Small coffee shop good for breakfast and lunch on Ocean Ave. Reasonably priced and interesting menu. Good smoothies. Right opposite the Viceroy Hotel. Can get very busy so put your name down in advance.

came here for breakfast just down the block from the hotel. Had blueberry pancakes made with orange juice instead of milk and was absolutely delicious. Menu is pricey, $50 for two people is on the low side

This was the nearest breakfast place to our hotel, but there was a long line outside on the first day (a good sign) but we managed to get in without a wait on our second day. We really enjoyed the pancakes, freshly made and quickly...More

Santa Monica
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
