You absolutely can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Not a soup person? That's because you haven't had Amelia's soup and bread. Not so much into breakfast? Have some cheesy toast...go ahead and act like you need to share it. It won't take Gino long to whip up a second order when you realize your error.
Fresh, simple food with delicious drinks and a ban on laptops so you can say 'hi' to the locals. And if you're a tourist and you see a famous person or two, act chill and just smile and nod. Remember, it's their quiet coffee time, too!

The staff is so friendly and made us feel welcomed every morning. The coffee is to die for. Excellent place.

We've been visiting Amelia's for years and when we're back in Santa Monica, it's always the first place we visit for coffee and breakfast when we return home to Santa Monica. The menu is not massive, but it is wonderful. Try the soup! Whatever it is, you will love it, seriously get the soup. Anyway, my family LOVES this place and we all adore the owners. Our love for Amelia's has only grown through the years and many visits!

Family owned is always a plus and their dishes are authentic and fresh. Enjoyed the avocado toast with watercress, italian sausage plate, smoothest coffee ever!!
Desserts were fresh and did not disappoint.

I always have breakfast at Amelia's when I stay at the Sea Shore Motel.
The husband/wife team is super friendly and the food is very good.
