“Great Breakfast”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

This chain never disappoints. I usually have my breakfasts there. I like the waffles with agave to pour over instead of maple syrup. The OJ is fresh and the coffee tasty. All in all a good choice for breakfast

“Excellent quality chain of cafe-style restaurants”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Our local SoCal friends recommended this place on a day out in Santa Monica on a trip from UK. Great food and drinks, just missed breakfast (shame) but the lunch offering were of very good quality - fresh ingredients, nicely presented and served by friendly staff. Realised after a bit that we had visited the one in Greenwich Village a couple of years previously and this was just as good, Excellent, rustic decor too

“Best breakfast”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

It's cozy, it's organic, it's fresh, it's affordable - what else you need....? This particular one in Santa Monica is also offering the typical menu of the Le Pain chain and the quality / quantity / value does not disappoint. If you want to have a healthy breakfast in a Povence-like place, this is your best choice.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Had a late lunch here. Came back the next day for breakfast. Everything was very fresh and healthy. We loved the warm goat cheese salad and the curried chicken salad. For breakfast, the organic bread basket with their spreads and a pot of tea was really delicious. I ended up buying their cookbook because the recipes seem easy, healthy and tasty. Can't wait to try them at home.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Excellent eggs, scones, jams, and a great atmosphere. Coffee was strong and you can ask for espressos. Really enjoyed it.
