When lovesfood11 asked Chowhound for breakfast suggestions in Santa Monica, lots of hands went up for Cora’s Coffee Shoppe. Fans say Cora’s bougianvillea-covered patio is charming, but the real charm is the “well executed and creative comfort food.”
Much of the produce is from the nearby Santa Monica Farmers Market, and the menu’s range—from incredible huevos rancheros to equally incredible orange pancakes (pictured), topped with blueberries in season—is pretty impressive.
