We stopped in for breakfast before going to the Santa Monica pier. It was a very cool place decorated with superhero memorabilia on one side and the opposite side had purple cows. Was very much a typical diner with diner food. The service was great...More

Casual neighborhood spot with good menu. Many vegan/vegetarian choices plainly marked on the menu. Fairly priced. Street parking. Definitely would return.

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a

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
