My favorite restaurant on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. This is my favorite of the three locations. Eat here at least once a month. You feel like you are in Paris when inside and the best of Paris, but on the ocean when sitting outside. Healthy choices for food and just an overall nice atmosphere.

Food and coffee is great! It's worth sitting outside to take in the ocean views, but bring a windbreaker or hoodie, it's chilly in the morning. I don't believe they have heaters on the patio. Try the Spanish Latte, very yummy! Good if your having a plain croissant.. too much along side a full breakfast for most women. The inside... More

We ate lunch at the Yellow Vase today. Arrived a little after 1:00 on an overcast Saturday. It was very crowded. This is a cafe where you choose a place to sit and then place your order at the front desk. They then bring the food out to your table. The menu is focused on breakfast items (eggs & omelets),...

I stopped at the Yellow Vase Bakery & Flowers café in the Riviera section of Redondo Beach for a quick breakfast bite before heading home to the cold east coast. The café is warm & inviting and the outdoor patio perfect to catch those last rays of the Cali sun. Really nicely appointed with kind of a French feel. Coffee... More

no waitresses no communication equals chaos. You order from the counter and the overworked girls give you coffee to take to table hard to get a refill of coffee as not enough staff to take orders at counter, clean dirty tables, refill water condiment silverware station, and deliver food to tables. This place has potential nice views pretty good food... More

Nice local place for a quick easy meal. Popular with locals. Good location, good views. Near the Point Vicente light a nice place to walk before or after a meal. Lovely view of Palos Verdes coastline.

If you just want coffee and a beautiful view, this place is great. The food is average, especially the lunches....breakfasts are a little better. The view on a clear day is gorgeous and if you are there during grey whale migration (Dec-Mar) you may see some whale blows while having your coffee.

We specialize in cakes and flowers for weddings and other large upscale events. People such as Hilary Duff have been spotted eating here, and Beverly Hills 90210 films at our locations regularly.
