We went here for breakfast and it was great. Down to earth decent food at good prices. Good sizes and excellent service. Fast without being in your fast but slow enough not to feel rushed. I'd highly recommend the granola with fruit. Fantastic thank you

Really enjoyed this little gem for breakfast. Had vegan scramble and my boys had omlettes....excellent balance of spices, veggies and potatoes for me and omlettes were filling for the guys. Shared a stack of pumpkin pancakes that were especially good. Definitely recommend...

This place was really busy on a Sunday morning, lots of local people which is always a good sign. There was a big range to choose from and the service was very quick. A huge breakfast sandwich on sourdough bread certainly kept us going well...More

After seeing the reviews we ate here, however we thought there were better places in Santa Monica. Nothing major wrong - just a little out-dated for us.
