ISO Early Weekday Breakfast in Santa Monica?
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)
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.
how about next door at Bread and Porrage-maybe they open too late-
or Dolores old time coffeee shop or
Callahan's on snata monica..
