This rating is to warn others about the food. Eggs were microwaved and the overall food experience was sub par. The coffee I got was delicious but would not recommend the breakfast at all

I probably shouldn't tell you that there is an upstairs that is usually empty and a great place to study/get work done. But now that you know it is a great place to get a bite to eat and send a few emails before taking...More

The place filled up quickly with many regulars. Good variety of coffee available and the bagel was very filling. Do note that it is cash only.

Kids loved the theme and the decor. Husband and I loved the coffee. What a selection of coffee, shakes and smoothies. There is something for everyone here. And then pair it with a breakfast or lunch sandwich and it tastes so good!! Great location too!

Great cafe! Good food and service. Huge variety of meals. Recommend the açai bowl and breakfast tacos! The only minor negative is that you have to listen out for you name to collect your own order and our orders came about 10min apart. Apart from...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
