Santa Monica Breakfast?


Down from Vancouver and need a good breakfast. I saw the LA Breakfast thread, but most of the posts didn't call out Santa Monica.

I saw a reference to Blue Plate. Any other suggestions?

      second Jinky's, Shutters (sit outside on the patio for an ocean view & breeze), and if you want to be directly on the sand, Back on the Beach.

      never been to Patrick's Roadhouse, but i've wanted to go ever since it was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

        I go to Bread & Porridge about once a month, and haven't had a bad meal there. The pecan and banana pancakes are good, as is the oatmeal. My buddy gets the spinach omelette every time, so that must be good, too.

        Jinky's is another standby. I like the huevos rancheros, which are inauthentic but quite tasty.

      2. This is one place on my list that I have been meaning to go to. Looks delicious. Not quite Santa Monica, but close enough I think.

          never been to 26 Beach for breakfast, but their salads are great.

        2. the best breakfast in Santa Monica is at either Cora's or Huckleberry.

            Skip Huckeberry - it's a zoo.

              its crowded because its good.

                No, it's crowded because it's hip. The food is nothing to write home about. The only high note is the maple bacon scone.

          2. Blue plate= no good.

            The only place I like for breakfast (including those mentioned above) is in the Huntley.

            1. Cynthia's on the Corner on Montana Ave
              Anisette (Wed, Sat, Sun only)

              These are the best breakfast spots, period.
