Cute little brunch place near the beach and 3rd street promenade. Came here on a Monday with a group of 6. There was no wait, and we were seated promptly. The food was very good, but -1 star for the price, it was a little overpriced for what they serve. But what can you expect for a place close to the beach and shopping?
I got the 2+2+2, with the flaky French toast. The French toast was amazing. That was worth the extra $1. I just wish that you didn't have to pay an extra $1 for real maple syrup. Ordered the bacon extra crispy, but came out a little too burnt. My husband got the Santa Fe omelette, and it was huge. It came with 2 corn tortillas, pea guacamole, and sour cream. I tried the pea guacamole and it was so interesting! It tasted slightly different from regular guacamole and had a little kick to it. My dad got the all American sandwich, and again the serving was huge.
Overall my family enjoyed our breakfast. The service was very good. The waitress came to check on us frequently and made sure our coffee pot was always full. Looking forward to coming here again next time we visit Santa Monica.

Went there today for lunch (first time)
Service was great. We got seated fast and the server kept coming to us to make sure everything was okay.
Food was okay. I got breakfast. They serve breakfast all day.

Come here for the staff and for the PEOPLE. Always an interesting bunch with chill waiters & waitresses down for a chat, and amiable patrons, usually in the industry.
The food is pretty good. THEY PRIDE THEMSELVES ON THEIR CHILI, which they rank from 1 to 10 in spiciness. The DEVILO 10+ is indeed VERY SPICY (I could go spicier) but there are no complexities in the spices and flavors, just salty, hot beef. Me. The Himalayan chili is a little better on flavor, but I'm still not thrilled.
Definitely worth checking out at least once. Kind of expensive, so make it a nice meetup occasion.

I love this place and I love that I live so close to it!
I tend to have a hard time finding places where I can order something healthy and still think it is worth not just staying home and making myself. The menu has a lot of healthy options which is nice. I have had the quinoa burger, quinoa salad and my fav.-the bombay scramble. The bombay scramble is basically scrambled egg whites with some veggies rolled into two small tortillas and comes with a side of fruit which I usually substitute sweet potato fries instead. The menu has a lot of variety so it is great for groups.
There is a nice outside patio which is where I usually prefer to be seated. Inside is a bit more like a diner but not bad.
The staff is always nice although I do think they can sometimes be a bit disorganized. Almost every time I go here I have three different waiters asking if they can get me started with a drink order, even though I have already put my order in. They seem to have a lack of communication between the staff-which can cause some delay in service. Other than that...I have no complaints. I am a pretty picky eater and they always get my order right!
Definitely worth a try!

Cute cozy place to grab breakfast on the weekends. The Red Velvet pancakes are amazing! Service was pretty quick and friendly.
Parking is easy, they have a small lot, we sat right next to the window...got to people watch on a Saturday morning. Pretty chill little place to grab breakfast.
