A beautiful setting looking west over the Pacific Ocean and towards Catalina Island. But I'm not sure how you can ruin a tuna fish salad sandwich. My wife enjoyed her omelette, so maybe the trick is to keep to breakfast fare. The cookies we had for desert were meh.

Great for a quick breakfast stop, fresh and tasty food accompanied by a coffee to wake up, after a early morning bike tour. The Yellow Vase has ocean views and is close to several resorts in the area.

If you're itching for an afternoon in Paris, save the $1,200 airfare and rush over to "Yellow Vase". While their service isn't always the warmest and fuzziest (which only enhances the feeling of being in Paris), the rest of the environment is far far away from the realities of home. The food is always yummy, the coffee drinks fantastic and... More

We dropped in for coffee and a blueberry muffin on our 5 mile hike along the Pacific Ocean. Nice fast order place, kind of like a Starbucks. Well worth dropping in.

My favorite restaurant on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. This is my favorite of the three locations. Eat here at least once a month. You feel like you are in Paris when inside and the best of Paris, but on the ocean when sitting outside. Healthy choices for food and just an overall nice atmosphere.

Food and coffee is great! It's worth sitting outside to take in the ocean views, but bring a windbreaker or hoodie, it's chilly in the morning. I don't believe they have heaters on the patio. Try the Spanish Latte, very yummy! Good if your having a plain croissant.. too much along side a full breakfast for most women. The inside... More

We ate lunch at the Yellow Vase today. Arrived a little after 1:00 on an overcast Saturday. It was very crowded. This is a cafe where you choose a place to sit and then place your order at the front desk. They then bring the food out to your table. The menu is focused on breakfast items (eggs & omelets),...

I stopped at the Yellow Vase Bakery & Flowers café in the Riviera section of Redondo Beach for a quick breakfast bite before heading home to the cold east coast. The café is warm & inviting and the outdoor patio perfect to catch those last rays of the Cali sun. Really nicely appointed with kind of a French feel. Coffee... More

no waitresses no communication equals chaos. You order from the counter and the overworked girls give you coffee to take to table hard to get a refill of coffee as not enough staff to take orders at counter, clean dirty tables, refill water condiment silverware station, and deliver food to tables.
