If you're staying in Hermosa beach (or anywhere close by) drop in here for a smoothie. I had the Berry Powerful and drank it within 5 minutes. Very delicious and healthy. Staff was nice and parking was easy (it was also 7:30 in the morning).

The Source Cafe has a wonderful and well rounded menu. Truly something for everyone. I live in the area and appreciate their unique style. I try something new each time I visit. Always delicious. A lovely, unhurried atmosphere.

I only ever order a coffee and fresh muffin. So fresh and the ambiance is wonderful to sit out front and enjoy the fresh air. A must visit.

$9.50 for a yogurt parfait? I don't care if it is made from vegan, artisinal fairy wings, that's absurd. It's a very small space, so it's also crowded and loud. Get it to go or prepare to wait.

Fresh made food, juice and GREAT coffee; very friendly staff; local joint; sometimes a long wait. I love the white anchovy flatbread and the whitefish salad sandwich. I'd stay away from the gluten free pastries unless you really are vegan and want to be reminded...More

A group of 3 of us had lunch here on Fri 4/14. I got the tuna, garbanzo, and pesto bowl and it was really delicious. I will definitely try to recreate it at home! My brother got a Panini that he adored, and his girlfriend...More
