not giving 1 star because I shop here often and the cafe food is good, but the service is terrible; last time I went they lost my ticket...and none of what was ordered was served to us.

This is part of a restaurant supply and fine food store. But they have a delightful cafe which serves all sorts of foods. Home made breads that taste like Paris ones, gorgeous and unusual cheeses and meats. They do a wine and cheese and meat tasting and you can sit a the bar area or outside on patio. The deli... More

We went to Surfa's for some kitchen supplies and found much more - a charming cafe, deli & well stocked commercial & home kitchen store, all in one. Enjoyed panini & pastries, then roamed the store finding the kitchen supplies that we needed. In a strange location south of the I-405 in Culver City - but they've been here since... More

This is not the fancy place you come and eat with your friends; it's the adjoined bistro next to culinary heaven: where mostly professionals in this industry stop to shop... All their food items are served mostly to a very picky crowd, prepared by some culinary students and the whole bistro prevails a mini-atmosphere of a culinary school outlet. The... More

I like to stop here when finishing a bike ride. The good thing is the food and coffee are very good. And more important I have no way to take anything home on the bike. So I will not buy more kitchen stuff next door at the store.

We arrived at Surfas to do some shopping and decided we'd better have something to eat before we go in. Otherwise, we would end up buying so much more than we came for. The café serves up some delicious salads, sandwiches and desserts. We shared some salads and a sandwich and had cold drinks on their patio. This is a... More

This cafe is always on my hit list when I'm in the area. The scratch pastries are awesome. The adjacent store is a foodie wonderland. Where else can you rub shoulders and steal advice from up-and-coming Chef's? Items are pricy, but you won't be driving all over the city for hard to find ingredients and tools. I like to grab...

With the amazing quality of the items for sale in the retail store, the cafe didn't match-up, was very expensive and a bit disappointing.

Good coffee, fresh squeeze blood orange juice, and deli sandwiches at this cafe next to the restaurant supply shop and gourmet food store. The store is pretty amazing, with cooking demonstrations and an excellent cheese shop. The deli and bakery is pretty great too. Nice outdoor seating on the patio. I could spend the day here easily. They have free... More
