We had brunch here on our one day stop over in LA. We were all happy with the food, cooked from scratch, very fresh salad accompanied one of the meals (not the limp offering usually experienced) My chicken hash with poached eggs (pictured) was perfect. Fresh herbs! The coffee is also excellent, if you're a visiting Aussie this will be... More

We went here on a rainy day so inside seating was tight but we got a table. The service was very efficient and friendly. The food was very good. We had the chicken hash, Austin omelet and a scone. It was plenty of food and very delicious. The homemade apple puree served with the toast and scone was delicious. There... More

We had breakfast here and it was tasty. Unique fare on boardwalk because of chicken / apple sausages. Excellent scones - melt in mouth buttery.

I had an omelet, huge portions, around $12. Nice view if you sit outside and watch passerby's... Near Venice Suites.

Make a morning of it -- good food, people watching, walking on the boardwalk in Venice. On my 4-5 annual trips to LA I ALWAYS go to Figtrees for breakfast/brunch with friends - the food is delicious, scones a special treat and excellent coffee. We watch interesting folks walk or roller blade by and enjoy the ocean air and view... More

Great place on Venice Boardwalk to seat and have a bite or drink and watch the entertaining pedestrian traffic pass by. The food is ok and the service is passable. The hostess sitting on her stool at the front had her head buried in her cell phone oblivious to the patrons waiting to be seated on may occasions. The man... More

Good food, creative combinations. Price is okay, service a bit slow, but hey, it's the beach, comes with the vibe

We had a tasty lunch here but found it expensive for what we had and debated the quality of some of it. The walk to and from the restrooms highlights the dire need for refurbishment though.

Staying in Venice

Neighbourhood Profile
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
