You should't judge a book by its cover, so the adage goes. The same is true of this fine all-day breakfast spot hidden behind an unremarkable facade next to the Chevron gas station on PCH and Entrada. The name was doubly misleading. The word 'roadhouse' brings a somewhat disreputable establishments to mind, 'dive' type places where fights seem likely to... More

What a fun place to stop by and grab a bite to eat. I was out on business and wanted to find a place that was on Diners, Drive-in and Dives. I walked from the pier to the restaurant. This was a long walk if not up for walking try a bike or ride. The place didn't disappoint. I was... More

At first glance this seems like it would be a great stop on Pacific Coast Highway: funky/silly decor, beach-appropriate attitude, expansive California-style menu. I stopped in at 10:50 for breakfast at a moderately busy time. I was welcomed by a brand-new employee learning the ropes and the manager (owner?), both of whom were quite nice. But then things went downhill:... More

Fun decor and friendly service. Burger was good - would not recommend the chicken sandwich. Greasy shoestring fries if you like them that way. $40 for lunch for two without drinks.

Stopped in for breakfast at this cute little hideaway in Santa Monica. Food was great, service was fabulous, portions were HUGE!!! Sat in a booth facing the ocean with a beautiful view. The only bad part was parking, its scarce. All in all I love this place and would go back in heartbeat !!

Well if a large group of local police officers are breakfasting there, you know it must be good - and it is! Whenever I'm in Santa Monica I like to have (at least) one breakfast here. I had the bacon and eggs with sourdough toast and it was so tasty. I substituted the breakfast potatoes for the hot hash, you... More

Two for breakfast on recent mid-week mid-morning. The special oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar plus extra fresh fruit tasted good despite no milk included. I used creamer from the coffee which worked fine. What was unique was that two types of coffee were offered: a stronger organic version and a regular less strong variety; we very much enjoyed the...

A simple eatery but the decor is brilliant ... you just have to see it ... quirky, eccentric, old school, irish weirdness. Staff are warm and welcoming and extremely helpful. Breakfast burrito's are a must with quality organic coffee, (we went and bought some from the local supplier its that good). We stayed in one of the apartments above, (avail... More

Once again a place I'd visited on my first trip to the USA 33 years ago, so we drove straight from LAX after an early morning arrival from Australia! An institution with old memorabilia from movie stars and US history. A funky little shack with some outdoor tables and free self-parking. Great for breakfast, a snack or cocktails. Efficient service.... More
