Sit in back outside with your family under umbrellas, and enjoy their great food and coffee. Very relaxing, especially during July 70's weather. Went two days for lunch on a 4 day vacation, that's how good it is. Had a good salad, lemon chicken breast...More

We called in here for breakfast and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the food was superb. In fact items on the dinner menu caught our eye and we returned later for dinner. We weren't disappointed as our dinner meals were equally as enjoyable.

Our airbnb recommended this place for breakfast. The croissants were good and the fruit crumble touched the spot, but we were uninspired and wifi would have made a difference. Maybe 3 and a half stars. The coffee was fine.

I've been a fan of Thyme since they opened. It's local, it's reasonable, it's convenient. Staff is great. I admit that I have to resist getting those deserts which they do a great job of marketing as soon as you walk in, but that's on...More

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
