I NEED A BREAKFAST PLACE WITH AN OCEAN VIEW- preferably with the wind in my hair, but no sand on my plate?

    Go to Paradise Cove in Malibu. It's right on the beach and serves breakfast. A favorite for locals.

      Yes! Paradise Cove is the spot where I take out-of-town guests who are wanting that sand between the toes atmosphere. If you want your experience a bit less rustic, you can eat inside which is also quite pretty.

        BACK ON THE BEACH!! Literally toes in the sand, and wind in your hair. Inexpensive too!!

          The food is extremely mediocre, but it is a lovely setting.

            agree on both observations, but if you sit outside you'll likely have sand on your plate...and inside you won't have the wind in your hair!

        The Lobster in Santa Monica. Yum! (but depending on your budget might be pricey)

          I haven't been to The Figtree in Venice for a while, but it was always a very enjoyable breakfast spot right on the beach.

          Truth is, I'm not even sure it is still there ...

              I stopped going to Figtree only because I began to prefer the Brickhouse.

              The Brickhouse is not on the beach, though, it's a few blocks away.

            Wind in your hair, ocean view + harbor view, no sand: all this is available at Polly's on the Pier in Redondo Beach. You can sit outside over the water and enjoy good, regular breakfast food, which is very reasonably priced. There are often fish or seals in the water to entertain you if you have to wait for a table along with a cup of coffee. It’s not fancy but I enjoy it.

              Geoffrey's in Malibu had some pretty good crab cakes benedict (I think I went 2 years ago though...not sure if it's still the same menu). Nice outdoor seating area..ocean view. Saw dolphins...pretty cool.
