This place isn't very big, but the sandwiches we had were excellent (egg salad, and A+), and we enjoyed the feel of the place.

This is a very casual restaurant that offers nice gluten free options, which is huge for those with Celiacs Disease. The sandwiches were great and prepared safely and quickly. Highly recommend!

This is a very informal place. You place your order at the counter inside and your food is brought to you. Most seating is outside, which is pleasant. The salads that we had were excellent.

Waited 15 minutes for a $12 egg salad sandwich. After 20 minutes of waiting, asked for a refund. Over priced and over hyped.

Organic Fresh and Healthy Food take out available! Loved Catalina Avocado Toast and Tuna Salad easy to find next door to Vons. Plenty of seating

Picked up sandwiches to go, which were extremely good. Had a tuna salad sandwich, a veggie stack sandwich, and a turkey sandwich. No one was disappointed.

This place is a good lunch spot - haven't had dinner there, but that's mostly because we have a few favorites for dinner. The menu has good variety of generally American food, good selection of fish in keeping with the location. Pleasant atmosphere, fair prices,...More

We all had a lovely lunch at Cafe Metropole several times while in Avalon. They have a nice selection as well as good drinks! Definitely a family favorite!

Always a fantastic meal. Juices are top notch, service is amazing, and its a family vibe with good quality meals. Perfect in so many ways.
