Located in the Malibu Country Mart about five minutes from Malibu Pier, we stopped here for breakfast. If you're contemplating the Pineapple pancakes with salted caramel butter – it is HUGE and best eaten with a friend! But absolutely delicious nonetheless. My other half went for a grilled chicken breast which came with gluten free pancakes, berries and can you... More

We was 5 people eating different dishes and we all enjoyed our food. My daughter says she had the best Meal of her life. She ordered a Pasta Pesto with Chicken.

Very good and varied menu. Salads, breakfast, sandwiches, soups, etc. Local cafe feel in a great walking/shopping place. I usually visit here for lunch/brunch when in Malibu. Full bar, coffee, tea. It's not fine dining but they have consistently good food and huge portions. Worth a visit

This is a go-to spot when we're in Malibu for breakfast, and they never disappoint. Breakfast is tasty, plentiful and service is always good. They also have a varied menu for lunch, which has also been consistently delicious.

Ate there for years for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It's gone downhill constantly and not worth another try.

A nice breakfast spot with good food, cheery atmosphere and friendly folks. We had a tasty BLT and fish taco. Portions are good without being huge, which is nice.

I stopped here several times for breakfast while on a business trip. Everything I had was quite good, but the smoked salmon benedict was absolutely amazing! The service was great and the ambience was enjoyable. Will definitely return next time I'm in the area.
