Smooth process and clean establishment midway between Venice and SM. Nitro coffee was great! Not bad for a visit

This is a well run branch of the Coffee Bean chain, set on Main Street, that offers all the usual products. However, a major plus is the setting and outdoor seating giving ample chance to meet and chat to the other customers, whilst enjoying the friendly passing foot traffic of dog walkers and strollers on a warm, sunny day

We came here to grab a coffee, tea, and lunch. The place is where people play chess outside on the garden tables, and they take it seriously! The place is quick at service, and it's a great corner plot to people watch and watch life go by on Main Street.

It's a good stop on Main Street. A bit small but great to grab a coffee/tea on the go. Great staff. It's a regular go-to-place.

There are other Coffee Bean stores around L.A, but this one is special. I went there at least 1 time at a day for 1 month, because it was right next to my english school. The staff is very nice to you, they give you some tips and you dont even have to ask for it! They warn you about... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
