Great coffee (like real proper coffee) awesome breakfast burrito and bagels and easy going staff. A place that has history and style also. I’d eat here everyday if I lived in Santa Monica.

Visited Dogtown Coffee while in Santa Monica for a few days and it was fantastic. The breakfast burrito was one of the best I’ve ever had! Great little patio to sit and enjoy a coffee and breakfast.

Walked 20 minutes to get here for breakfast. Enjoyed the almond croissant. Loved the salted caramel cookie. Had a blast with the granola bowl. Disappointed by the coffee - in need of more espresso and less milk.

Ordered expresso and we were not disappointed . We are coffee snobs from Melbourne and this is by far the best coffee we have had since we arrived a month ago.

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
