Excellent food and fast service. Limited parking - go early. Breakfasts are the best and the owners are on site to make sure service is good.

We had a number of really great meals here during our stay. Try the breakfast pie on Saturday mornings. Friendly service and great coffee. We are from South Africa and the owners remembered us from previous visits. We look forward to our next visit!

roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
