I prefer this location to the other 2. Parking is easy since it's located in the Brentwood Country Mart & they have a lot of outdoor seating unlike the other 2 locations that just have a bench outside. Also the people that work at this location are a lot nicer & less pretentious than the other locations Caffe Luxxe serves smooth espresso with no bitter afterfinish. They have a great selection, one of my favorites being a Gibraltar which probably is best described as somewhere between a cappuccino and a macchiato. The Shakerato is also a great iced drink for the summer. I love how it's a touch of mocha flavor which doesn't make it overwhelming sweet & it's shaken, so no leftover icecubes to water down your drink. The pastry selection is ok. Their croissants are not worth those extra pounds. Also no wi-fi here which some people may find annoying but you can definitely appreciate. Luxxe is a place to come have a great espresso drink/coffee and catch up with a friend and people watch.

Known for their baked goods, specially roasted coffee and comfy atmosphere Jack N Jills also has one of the best lunch menus in Santa Monica. Delicious soups are made daily and can be served with one of their many delicious homemade breads or a sandwich on said bread. I love their salads. They are huge and overflowing with different combinations of flavors. A favorite of mine is heaped with raisins, cranberries, apple slices, mandarin orange slices and chunks of blue cheese and chicken. A tangy, tart, sweet dressing livens it all up and gives it some unity. Be sure to try any of their baked goods as a desert, you'll end up asking for a dozen to go!
I love the salad specials they have here - the grilled chicken and grilled steak are both yummy, make you feel healthy without being deprived. They use some sort of special sauce which gives it an asian-mediterranean flavor and is still really juicy. Plus lots of good quality feta - yum! People here are very nice too and it's a nice and quiet spot.
