I was with two others for a business breakfast and we all enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is well-designed with amazing views. The breakfast was delicious and the service was excellent. I highly recommend the Penthouse!

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
