Healthier or not! Everything from hearty oatmeal and fruit to bacon and corned beef hash! Several options have a Mexican flare to them. Food is fresh and service is very friendly. Nice alternative to hotel breakfast if your staying at any hotel in Santa Monica...More

Stopped in one morning for breakfast. The breakfast was excellent and filling. Staff was average, nothing jumped out for quality of service. We had the Omelette of the day and was quite tasty. Cost is above average but given the location I guess acceptable.

Loved the orange pancakes with blueberries. Not rushed. Frittata was ok, a little dry. Nice presentation with Arugula salad and homemade toast. Cafe Au Lait was delish. Overall so glad we went.

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
