I visited here a few times during my stay in LA, and have to admit that I'd go back in a heartbeat. A real neighbourhood place, it has a friendly atmosphere. The service is great, with the staff always ready with a smile, the coffee always fresh, and I fell in love with the avocado Club sandwich on sourdough! A... More

Nondescript selection of sandwiches, wraps and salads. We had a wrap and pancakes, which were both completely fine, especially if you are on the run.

This is seriously the perfect place to grab a yummy breakfast or brunch before hitting the beach. I personally love the California omelet. There's a coffee place (Tanner's) right across the street, but I think the coffee at Milan is a lot better.

A great place for Breakfast, Brunch, and Lunch. The best coffee in Playa del Rey! Friendly staff, cute little eatery with indoor and outdoor tables.

Breakfast burrito is the best around. this is a very casual place where you walk up to the counter to order. Service is quick, but its always full of locals on the weekend.

Not a big fan of the coffee they served but the staff is friendly and it is clearly a place where the locals hang out and have breakfast and coffee. Funky little coffee shop.

Looks pretty typical - a few inside tables and more on the outside parking lot - not an especially great view, but you will feel like a local eating here. The place is usually filled with regulars. Food is good! I have to have their chef salad every time I am in LA.

A good place to gather with a nice menu and fair prices for close to the beach. Outdoor seating is funny as spaced on the sidewalk.

Cafe Milan is a good place to go for morning coffee or breakfast and, if you need exercise, for a walk on the beach afterwards. Anyone who is anyone in Playa del Rey goes to this cafe in the morning....it's also got a few notables who show up every now and then. The food is good and the cafe has... More

Don't get me wrong -- the food here is good. The thing is, I was slightly underwhelmed with the prospect of paying NINE DOLLARS for a bagel with cream cheese and lox on it. As a New Yorker, that's anathema. Furthermore, no one should be forced to watch a certain highly politicized cable "news network" while they're in town. For... More
