What a refreshing alternative to Starbucks and other chain coffee houses! Eclectic, low-key, and charming, staffed and patronized by real locals, 18th Street Coffee House is a great place to work, relax, meet a friend, or have a meeting.

18th Street is a relaxing place to get away and get work done that doesn't require wifi. I generally enjoy going here to read, study and have a quiet environment to meet with people. It is very moderately priced and they also have food options.

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

revelers scream with delight riding the roller
