Novel Cafe question ...

PaulF | Jun 14, 2007 09:05 AM

I like to eat in the Novel Cafe in Westwood Village -- ate their yesterday in fact.

There is also a Novel Cafe in Santa Monica, but I don't think the two are related. The one in Westwood is sort of a semi-upscale cafe with sandwiches and pasta and burgers and breakfast. The one in Santa Monica is more like a used book store with a coffee shop inside.

But I haven't been to the one in SaMo for a long time, it might have changed.

My questions are:

Does anyone know if the Santa Monica and Westwood Novel Cafes are related?

And ...

There is a new Novel Cafe opening up on Ocean Park (also in Santa Monica) in the same mall as The Counter and Starbucks in what used to be a crappy video store. Is this new Novel Cafe related to the one in Westwood, the other Santa Monica Novel Cafe or is it a third entity called Novel Cafe?
