Nice and very popular diner. They have good vegetarian options that are tasty and fairly priced. You should arrive early because it gets busy for brunch. A good choice if you are around.

Hip throwback coffee shop/diner. Food is great at a fair price. Highly recommend the early bird special (served to 11AM) with 2 eggs, choice of french toast or pancakes and choice of breakfast meat for 7.25. Seen from knocked up was filmed here.

Had a couple of good breakfasts here while vacationing. The food and service were both good. The prices were strong for a diner, but then again, it is Santa Monica. I'd go back again and recommend it to others.

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
