We are sitting in the patio area, munching on the complimentary brioche and olive tapinard. This is our second visit after a brunch visit last week. Lunch is amazing at 23 bucks for a wonderful 3 course meal. Being a Brit, the Turbodog brown ale washes down with the food fantastically. The missus is slurping the watermelon champagne spritzer.
This is a must munch for any visitors to the Venice Beach area. If you overeat on the great food, then a walk up Kinney past the clothes shops towards the canals is a great wander.
Anyway, 10/10 for the experience.

Ever since Joe's opened as part of a house and gradually expanded, I've had consistently great food here and very good service to match. I've enjoyed lunch, brunch and dinner here. Also, thankfully, this is NOT your Hollywood "bistro to the stars" where ordinary folks get shoved aside for Hollywood big shots as in other LA restaurants.

Brunch in Abbot Kinny and it's wonderful. All of the staff kept every sip and bite at the ready without interruption and the atmosphere was a nice balance of professional and relaxed. The staff have personalities that lend themselves to the service industry which made it fun. The french toast is by the pastry chef giving the fluff, bounce and texture minus the sugar to make it a step above.

We had brunch at Joes and the food was amazing, Angela was a great server! Sadly, even with a reservation we were sat at the hallway table. Which is less than ideal. I will make a point to request elsewhere in the future. The watermelon mimosas are wonderful.

We met family there for brunch . It was truly delicious I had the chicken ravioli and it was amazing. It is a nice intimate place to eat I would definitely go back if I went back to LA !
