We each ordered a shake. Although our shakes were different we loaded them up with extras. Two shakes cost more than $40. I visit here whenever I'm in Santa Monica. Just be prepared to pay. If you want a good shake without paying as much, go to the Santa Monica Whole Foods.

They are now more into Juice Stores and have expanded very strategically & measured. Their flagship store on Montana Ave in Santa Monica still puts delivers outstanding organic food at reasonable prices,considering the quality involved. Brunch or Lunch you won't be disappointed.Start off your meal with the perfect aperitif....a turmeric shot in a shot glass..

The service was nothing out of the ordinary, meaning it was not good or bad. The items sold here are very pricey! I have tried about 5 juices and I would say they are effective. Recommend: destress and green 4 Avoid: 50 shades of green

I really like Kreation Kafè, especially the Venice location (on Abbot Kinney), but I went to the Santa Monica one because it was the only one serving pancakes. I wanted to try their pancakes and I was very satisfied. Moreover, they have plenty of good natural juices! I also like the fact that their menu is on a tablet.

Had the Huevos Cancun, Brain juice, and Skin juice. Eggs were pretty tasty, but honestly could have used a little more flavor. Juices were nice and refreshing. They offer a gluten free baguette as an option, but it had dairy in it so I couldn't try it. Love that they put chlorophyll in the water! The iPad menus were pretty... More

The atmosphere is chill and the service is quick. Great promotion to return glass bottle for one dollar credit towards your next juice.

I had an appointment nearby and asked receptions where is good spot for salad lunch and she recommended Kreation. It was just a few blocks down on Montana. I was by myself, but the beautiful hostess made me feel very welcomed and seated me at prime table on the front sidewalk terrace - perfect place for people watching. The menu... More

I visited Kreation for the second time in less than a month, seeing that I live in Vancouver hence cannot frequent this place as often as i would like. And i can 100% state that Kreation make THE best ace bowls; value, ingredients, portion size, creativity with their menu/bowls...all stand apart when i compare to Sunlife (Malibu) and NekterJuice in...

I've been going to kreation since they've opened in santa monica and their quality has continued to go downhill. They've downsized the amount of ingredients they serve on a plate to portions enough to make a small human hungry after their meal. And they somehow managed to make carrot sticks and celery inedible since they prep them days in advance... More

We were at kreation for brunch. Coffee selections are fantastic! Our breakfast was very oily. Ambience is nothing "a whole in a wall" indeed.

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.
