Amelia’s smokes their own porchetta! The sandwich was incredible. The service, staff and family know how to run an exceptional cafe. We loved talking to the staff and enjoyed their appreciation for the art of conversation :)

After an early flight from the east coast, we walked to this great little place for breakfast/lunch based on our time difference. Undecided and starving, I followed the recommendation for the avocado toast. It was amazing! I was a little weary as I have had...More

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
