Took trip advisors advice and am glad I did. The service was perfect. The food (chicken pita for me) was excellent. Healthy and tasty. The apple soda was amazing. Even the coffee was excellent. Highly recommend this place.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

revelers scream with delight riding the roller

I would call and ask them to be sure. They know how well they can segregate the kitchen and if you might be at risk for contamination.
