Celine was such a wonderful hostess, she went out of her way to make us feel welcome and to do what she could to make our experience at the cafe a positive one. We are here 3 times in 2 days and will probably go...More

This is an average cafe on Venice. Had an omelette and pancakes and it was ok. Nothing special but nothing wrong either. The cappucino onthe other hand was bad.

Beware - they add the tip to your bill. Don't tip on top of it!! We were rushed through dinner which was ok. It was pretty busy and it seemed the server couldn't cope. Immediately after eating our mains, the bill arrived so we left....More

I went with 3 friends for lunch, the reception we received was far from friendly. The table was sticky and there is bird dropping all over the pull out roof which we didn't see until our food came out but I have to say was...More

Food was average. The Tostada Salad bowl was halfway filled and was missing the guacamole. Service was better than the food quality. I liked the atmosphere outside. Nothing about this place that would call me back again.

Stopped by here late Saturday evening for a bite to eat whilst we stopped in Venice. The staff are nothing sort then helpful and friendly....and the buzz from Venice Boardwalk helps to make the place. Try the chicken pasta: yummy :)

The staff who served us were really friendly, the choices of drinks were really good too, and being on the boardwalk looking over the beach is always a winner. Sat outside so can't speak to much for the inside of this place, but if the...More

I must give this cafe an award - the worst latte I have ever had in my life. If they served this in Australia they would be out of business in a week. Also ordered eggs benedict which was also very average. Would not recommend...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
