I had an excellent pita with schnitzel and hummus and tahini and fries (fries in the sandwich.). It was delicious with a good price. I think I might give a five if I eat here again, falafel looked good on another patron’s plate.

We grabbed a quick lunch here while we were doing some shopping on Third Street Promenade, and all four us really enjoyed our meals! The hummus was delicious, and so were the chicken sandwiches! Everything was really fresh, and we got our food really quickly....More

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
