ISO Early Weekday Breakfast in Santa Monica?

aching Apr 18, 2007 12:08 PM

I periodically meet a friend for early breakfast in Santa Monica. We typically go to Snug Harbor, which we love, but I'm wondering if there are other options that I'm not aware of? Here's what we need:

- open by 6:30 AM
- in Santa Monica (preferably east)
- good food (preferably great food)

Any recommendations?

      It may sound heretical, but: Norm's, at Lincoln and Colorado. It's open 24 hours a day, and has good (though not great) food. For breakfast I suggest the "Four Deuces," which in its pristine form consists of 2 eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, 2 link sausages, and 2 pancakes -- and by the way, Norm's pancakes are quite good. You can also customize your order; I like 2 eggs over easy with 4 sausages and a biscuit and gravy. Plus you can sit and schmooze at Norm's as long as you like, and they keep bringing coffee even if you don't ask for it.

        Pepy's Galley at Grandview and Venice Blvd. in the Mar Vista bowling alley.

          What do you love at Snug Harbor? We tried it recently and were *really* disappointed, but maybe we just ordered incorrectly or were there on a bad day. I would love to hear recs from someone who frequents the spot since it's so close and the patio is so cute.

            I should have been more specific - we love the atmosphere at Snug Harbor! The food is not stand-out, although I've always found it to be perfectly edible. I typically get the Denver omlette, I believe. And the milkshakes are fantastic - although not for breakfast, of course.
