    Little bit of a wait but well worth it. Service was very attentive and the food was phenomenal. Definitely somewhere I will bookmark for a future trip to Santa Monica!

    Mad busy on weekends but what do you expect from the best breakfast in LA. Even with it being as busy as it is the service is great and food comes out looking like your the only one there. Awesome!!

    Dwight's Special. Don't front like you won't spend $5-6 on the vanilla latte, homemade strawberry lemonade or fresh squeezed orange juice. Because it's brunch and you're worth it

    Banana pecan indulgence is a MUST for anyone with a sweet tooth. Have your date order the chicken n waffles to balance it out. Best brekkie in SaMo! PS- Outdoor seating excellent for dog owners!

    The coconut water in the baby coconut is a cure for any thirsty mouth. Also it's delicious with the dark meat chicken and waffles

    Get that goat cheese and honey chicken n waffle and ask for extra crispy waffle, so good. Didn't love the chicken cut into pieces/strips. Chicken could've been crispier.

    Everything! The breakfast quesadilla is fantastic as is the eggs Benedict on waffles. Their waffle mix is top notch and their yogurt with fruit is super refreshing.

    I love the Eggs Benedict with crispy chicken and the mini waffle underneath is everything! Ask for the Hollandaise on the side just in case!

    Service absolutely blows. They aren't well educated on how to streamline efficiency during peak hours. The food is great, though. Worth the lackluster service, to be fair.

    Haters can go somewhere else to eat, spend at least $5 more for the meal, and drink Yukky coffee. Just sayin. If you dont want to wait- call for a reservation. The eggs Benedict is very good.

    Popeyes is good but eggs are bland. Its a waffle joint. Must order the chicken on fire. A bit spicy, but it waffle is fluffy, chicken is crispy it is perfect.

    One of the best casual brunch spots in Santa Monica, with a broad, eclectic menu. But expect a long wait on weekends.
