It's on 2nd and Santa Monica Blvd across from Equinox where there is parking, there is also city parking on 2nd St and more expensive parking at the mall. There are inside/outside tables, free WiFi and a larger table for groups. Writers often hang out there as well as tourists. Food, coffee, and tea are available here.

I snagged a blueberry muffin and a blood orange sweet tea for breakfast. The muffin was delicious and tasted real - not a packaged, processed item but freshly baked. I don't normally drink teas so I was surprised I loved the sweet tea as much as I did. Great blood orange flavor and not too sweet!

When I faced these 3 ladies so incredibly rude not answering to any civilized greeting or smile, I watch around looking for the candide cameras I was sure were hidden somewhere... When they called me screaming "Hey You!!!" I started laughing as I found it absolutely incredible that any company entrusted these three ladies to manage the customer experience(or should... More

They serve everything you would expect, but there is nowhere particularly to queue...it's your average Coffee bean I guess...

I love the iced blended mocha and I get it no sugar added and without whipping cream so it is not a calorie-breaker; it is delicious, refreshing and filling.

It's down the street from The Promenade and a good alternative than waiting in line at Starbucks. It's on the south corner of Santa Monica & 2nd Street. There's not a lot of seating but good place to grab a latte.

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
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 coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
