Ate there for years for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's gone downhill constantly and not worth another try.

A nice breakfast spot with good food, cheery atmosphere and friendly folks. We had a tasty BLT and fish taco. Portions are good without being huge, which is nice.

I stopped here several times for breakfast while on a business trip. Everything I had was quite good, but the smoked salmon benedict was absolutely amazing! The service was great and the ambience was enjoyable. Will definitely return next time I'm in the area.

We are here twice because we were staying in Santa Monica for the weekend. We had lunch the first day: pot pie, soup and salad, Cesar salad and gluten-free Mac and Cheese. It was all delicious! The next day, we returned for breakfast: ChileQuiles, gluten-free French toast and a scramble. That was also yummy! Service was fast on both days!... More

We visited this restaurant based on TripAdvisor feedback. The food was good - but a smile with the service would have made it better and doesn't cost much to give - I wouldn't go back.
