I went to 26 Beach Cafe (Washington/Venice) today (Easter) with my mom. I hadn't been there in a couple of years, and was so happy with the meal, the service & the cute decor. The portions are just the right size. We both had outstanding scrambled eggs (SO tasty, & not too salty) over rice/buckwheat. We had that with beautiful rose-colored raspberry iced tea. Then, we almost died with the pecan/raisin rice pudding w/ a "coup" of rose champage to go with it.
It's great for the girls/ladies especially -- because on the patio, it's all shabby chic, lots of pink, so pretty. I'm taking my mom back for mother's day. Total ambiance! I could see it for a romantic dinner as well.
They just need to open one in the Valley, and then it would be perfect.
