    Jinky's is good. You don't say what you want, though. I like to go to Norm's on Lincoln, for a real LA coffee shop treat.

    I had a strange lunch at the Crepe place. My friend's baguette sandwich had moldy cheese on it. She sent it back. The manager was horrified, and said we wouldn't have to pay, but then we were presented with a check. Looking at the check, we saw 2 charges for coffee drinks that we didn't even have - obviously we were given someone else's check. When we called it to their attention, they were prefectly nice and comped our meal, but the whole experience was a little weird.

      Not necessarily formal, but I like the bran muffins at Il Fornaio with a cup of tea.

      Due to my British upbringing, I'm also partial to the Tudor House.

          I like Jack n' Jill's on Santa Monica Blvd around 4th. I also like the crepe place at the end of the promenade near the mall.

            Broadway is decent enough, but the service can be very very slow. Good french toast at Broadway.

              Jinky's on Second Street, just north of Broadway. Best breakfasts in Santa Monica IMHO.

              Broadway Deli, on the Promenade at Broadway, isn't bad either.

                I like Le Pain Quotidien for breakfast, or if I'm homesick/hungover a full English breakfast at the King's Head.
