Arrived for an nice mornign breakfast - sat outside. There were outdoor heaters, since mornings in February are chilly. The food was excellent, as was the service. Would go back again.

This is an average cafe on Venice. Had an omelette and pancakes and it was ok. Nothing special but nothing wrong either. The cappucino onthe other hand was bad.

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
