What's your favorite breakfast place on the west side?

I'm looking to try a new breakfast restaurant. i usually go to the beach on the weekend and end up eating at the same breakfast restaurant. any suggestions? preferably by the beach area? santa monica, venice, manhattan, marina del ray?

  1. Have you tried Joe's Diner in Redondo Beach?

    1. jinky's in santa monica. go early or be prepared for a long wait.
      1447 2nd Street
      Santa Monica, CA 90401
      (310) 917-3311

      1. In Manhattan Beach, Uncle Bill's Pancake House has good buckwheat pancakes.

        In Venice, I like 3 Square Bakery and Cafe, especially for the bacon cheese twist.

        A bit furhter from the beach but still on the westside, I like the breakfast at Monte Alban (Oaxacan), Clementine (American comfort food), and BreadBar.

            I have to say, I like the food at Cora's, but I don't like Cora's.

            I find the chairs and tables and really the whole space sort of uncomfortable.

            Even though I enjoy my meals, I always talk myself out of going there due to the atmosphere ... though I can't put my finger on what it is, other than the place is small and the tables are small and the place seems small to me.

            JMO ... YMMV

              That how I feel about the booths at the Omlete Parlor on Main Street in Santa Monica - terrible wooden seats that have lips that curl up under the backs of your legs.

                I think the O parlor is uncomfortable and overrated.
