    parking can be difficult and there is usually a line, but the food and ambiance in the back is really nice.

    Despite the upscaled prices, there’s still something homey and downright satisfying about Bruce Marder’s own Cora’s Coffee Shoppe on Ocean Avenue. Don’t skip on the pancakes. Read more

    The lovely wrap-around patio suits the plates coming out of the kitchen, like a Wagyu steak and eggs plate, artichoke tarragon omelette, vegetable frittata, and blueberry buckwheat pancakes. Read more

    Much more pleasant to sit outside. Wait for a table. Food is good but on the expensive side for breakfast. Tourist prices.

    Slow, sullen service w/an attitude. Egg white frittata good but expensive. My server did not mention specials. When I told him that I had spilled s.th he said he would clean up but didn't . Ehh!

    Go early and don't bring a large group and perhaps your wait won't be too long. But it's worth it. I've had the orange pancakes (more cakey than flapjacky) and the lamb ragu. Great place!

    Great food. Just sometimes the waiters are smarmy. And God forbid don't stray even a few feet from the waiting list. They anemically call names, they hardly try. & then cross the name off. They won't

    Some of the best brunches I've ever had have been at this charming yet unassuming location. Delicious orange pancakes, cappuccinos, omelettes, polenta & italian sausage... I'm salivating already.

    Huevos rancheros and excellent espresso drinks make Cora's my favorite post-surfing breakfast joint...but you don't have to freeze in the polluted waters of our bay to groove on this A+ breakfast.

    Одно из лучших мест для завтраков в Санта Монике. Лучше приходить пораньше, шансов сесть после 8.30 почти нет
