“Best breakfast in Venice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

We ate every breakfast at Venice Beach's beachfront, making it in before 10 a.m., and getting the half price deal! Wonderful omelets! Great turkey bacon! Fresh juices! Great coffee! What else do you need? It's always fun people watching as well, with street musicians, dogs, and the many colorful folk of Venice walking by.

Right on the Boardwalk. Patio protected from panhandlers and wind. Very good food with many vegan and vegetarian options. Breakfast is half price between 9 and 10 a.m.

“Typical Beachy Food ... for tourists only”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

I recently went for a happy hour after a long walk along the beach. They advertised 1/2 price beer, but after sitting down, there were only some esoteric brands and nothing exciting. The service was good but the food was basically awful. I had a big objection in that there were standing walls so your view of the beach was obstructed. The whole point, for us, was to sit in a cafe and have a snack and look at the beach.

We had nachos to start. Microwaved chips, beans and perhaps 1-2 slices of jalapeños. The tuna sandwich we were going to split was raw even though we ordered it cooked and was inedible. No side, no tartar sauce, just fish and bun. IMO you can skip this place. Much nicer places along the beach that are clean with a great view and much better looking food.

“Best breakfast option in Venice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2013

Been eating out there every time I visit LA and Venice and loved them for their great choice of supertasty eggs, pancakes, omlettes, and frutis. And the guys working there really seem to care about what they are doing too. I have been going there since 5 years at least and I see the same faces waiting, which tells me they are in it for a long run. If you happen to be in Venice and are looking for a good meal to start your day, Figtree is your place.

“The best of the Boardwalk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2013

Of all of the places on the Venice boardwalk this is the one you want to eat at.

The food is good, place is clean , prices are reasonable portions are acceptable. The locals love it here as do the tourists.

It's about the food here, not the Venice tourist population.
