I'm going to be commuting west down Venice from Fairfax Blvd. to Centinela this spring, and was wondering if anyone could recommend good places for decent (i.e. non-gas-station) coffee or a quick, cheap lunch. I tried the Cemitas Poblanos taco truck today, which was awesome - got the milanesa cemita, stuffed w/ fresh avocado, onions, a smoky red chile...w/ a Cidral = $5.75.
There's a middle eastern/Greek place at Centinela (sorry, didn't get the name) that looked interesting, as well as Tom's #5, Smitty's Fried Fish, etc.
Thanks in advance
