Had a very good experience there. The atmosphere is nice and all the foods I had were delicious. Go for: edamami dumpling, kale gaucamole and wild mushroom pizza. In case you have someone to share, it is better to try dishes than to have only one for you.

As for the food, very fresh and organic choices. Enough selection for the entire family. I had the grass fed burger, which was very good. It's a... More

I ordered the red chili noodles for my dinner. I'm from China and like spicy food, so It fits my taste perfectly! However, we weren't really impressed by the service of our waitress because she didn't seem to be around much when we needed most basic water. Plus, my boyfriend ordered a burger but the buns were too dry, so... More

Stumbled across this place by accident with some friends, by fluke really as we parked in the multi story car park complex this place is based in. Upon checking the menu and having a quick Google, we noticed this place was rated very very highly and were excited in giving it a try. True to the rating, this place did... More

This was my first time visiting. I really enjoyed visiting. I had the Chicken teriyaki bowl without the mushroomsm. Id's a little pricey but given that everything is fresh it was with it. Good amount of vegetables in the dish. The staff was nice there's indoor and outdoor seating. They also have an on site garden. I really enjoyed this... More

Brunch is kind of my thing. I'll write a brief review here. If you want a full review with photos check out my blog bradybrunch.com or my Instagram @bradysbrunch. So as a health conscious foodie, I loved this place. As opposed to more carb heavy brunches, this place leaves you feeling energized instead of sluggish. Go early or late to... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
