Unbelievable service! Family run restaurant with the most delicious Italian sandwiches I’ve had outside of Italy! Amelia is an amazing woman as is her husband and son. They treat each customer as part of their family. True gem in Santa Monica and a must go!...More

Only had coffee and cake here but the food looked excellent. What makes this place stand out is the service, the guy in the counter (didn’t get his name, sorry). He clearly enjoys his job and his customer service is outstanding. It’s a shame we...More

You absolutely can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Not a soup person? That's because you haven't had Amelia's soup and bread. Not so much into breakfast? Have some cheesy toast...go ahead and act like you need to share it. It won't take Gino...More

We've been visiting Amelia's for years and when we're back in Santa Monica, it's always the first place we visit for coffee and breakfast when we return home to Santa Monica. The menu is not massive, but it is wonderful. Try the soup! Whatever it...More

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
