This is my goto place in Santa Monica. Been here hundreds of times. Excellent, healthy food. So much goodness it's hard to say any one thing is the best. The Quesadillas are amazingly good. All of them. Great breakfast potatoes too. Organic and I believe fair-traded coffee. Basically, I don't think you could go wrong, Friendly and helpful staff too.

Arrived close to lunch time but we were able to order a delicious breakfast. So many healthy options for breakfast and lunch. Coffee is good, too. Friendly, quick service. So many dishes to choose from; nice to start the day with this culinary top pick. Will definitely return.

Beautifully cooked food with lots of options. Quality ingredients and quick service. I had the vegan quesadilla and the hubby had a organic egg sandwich. The vegan thai tomato/pumpkin soup was amazing. So happy tp have discovered this tiny local favorite

Great place, where everything on the menu is top quality. Excellent service too. My kids wanted more toast (home made) and jam (ditto) and got it - free of charge. We're going back!

I really like this place because of the wide variety of dishes, the excellent quality of the food and, how good and healthy the food tastes. I have been there several times and have been consistently impressed. It's just really good food.

We found it really hard to find gluten free options for breakfast in Santa Monica, but the Interim Cafe really delivered. The gluten free french toast was delicious as were the eggs. The owner is really friendly and it is clear there is a real local following.

I had to laugh because as I read the only other review posted here, I wondered if I had already wrote this up because we too ate there for breakfast and returned the same day for lunch! You're not going to find anything processed here. It's right on the corner of 6th Street and Wilshire. If you blink you'll miss... More

This is a hard place to find as there is only a small piece of paper on the outside indicating the name of the cafe. Once we found the place for our Sunday breakfast, we were so pleased with the food that we came back 4 hours later for lunch. Most of the food on the menu is organic..big plus.... 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.
