We had several relaxing mornings here drinking lots of coffee and eating breakfast. The staff are so friendly and attentive! Omlettes were great! Just need a few more veggie options.

While it is natural to be dubious of restaurants in touristy and popular spots, Mercedes' right by Venice beach is actually a solid eatery serving up that Cuban flavor. The food is real tasty, and even if it doesn't get into my top 10 (I...More

I took my 4 coworkers to Mercedes’ Cuban Grill and it was a hit! We got a sample of everything and breakfast/ lunch was off the charts! Get the Cuban coffee and a Cuban sandwich.

Stopped by here for a quick bite and drink when first arriving to get our bearings of the area. Had pork sliders and they were tasty and hit the spot perfectly and enjoyed a few glasses of California Chardonnay. The staff were friendly and efficient.

Went for an early dinner. Ended up with two plates of some of the best chicken in a long time. If in the neighbourhood I would definitely go back.

Good food. Good service. Good bloodys and mimosas. The pork omelet was particularly good. Good eggs Benedict as well. Pricey, but on vacation so not as sensitive to cost. They did add 18% gratuity for the 5 of us. Glad I didn’t accidentally double tip....More

Mercedes proved to be a nice Cuban restaurant at the heart of Venice Beach. The heated patio worked well, and the tastes were delightful.

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
