Quaint little coffee shop that serves great breakfast. We stumbled across this little gem walking back to Venice Beach. Excellent service. We shared the Breakfast Burrito and Cora's Breakfast sandwich. Both delicious. Definitely worth a visit. Sitting is limited.

We love this place for breakfast, as the extensive menu is full of great choices. We eat there or if there is a line, we order our food to go! We eat here every time we are in Santa Monica.

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
