Fun place, good food and drinks

I would hit this up for Happy Hour or Meet a group for dinner. It's an energetic atmosphere. Can get crowded. Eating vegetarian here is nothing special, though the tostada is huge and they are accommodating.

Bottomless Mimosas

There are two things to really like about World Cafe: sitting on the charming and serene patio, and drinking their bottomless champagne at brunch, and with the beach just a block away, the patio serves for a great day or night of fresh air and interesting people watching.

Terrible Service

The food was fine, certainly there are more interesting menus elsewhere, but fine none the less. Unfortunately, the night was ruined when the waiter became enamored with my date. A little inappropriate for him to run his hand across her exposed back while he is pouring. He directed every interaction to her without ever looking my way. My date became uptight, hoping she was not being perceived as flirting with him. The waiter further copped an attitude with me as if I was a problem for bringing this beautiful woman to his station when he was working. We cut dinner short, leaving abruptly. My date apologized all the way home. The only reason I didn't say something to the manager was that I would have exploded. Truly unprofessional and made for an uncomfortable evening.

Great food and service

I took my friend here last week and we both loved it. Our waiter was very attentive and patient with us considering it took us so long to order. Once our food came we couldn't have been happier.
We both ordered fish dishes which came out perfectly seasoned with brussel sprout leaves on the side.
All I can say is YUM.

Great mix of restaurant/bar

When I took my first moved to LA and took a trip down Main Street, I was immediately drawn to World Cafe because of its impressive bar with such great ambiance/decor- mood lighting that wasn't too dark, interesting ottomans to sit on, etc. It was a pleasant suprise that the food here is just as good. I had the goat cheese and arugula salad which was divine (well dressed, warm goat cheese, perfectly portioned), and next time I return I plan to try some of their heavier dishes. Most importantly, even though it can get busy I've never found it overwhelming. Plus it's close to the beach.

Amazing mojitos!

Since I came here late on a Saturday night, I can only really speak to this place as a bar, and as a bar, I actually really enjoyed it. They had a delicious mojito bar, and I liked being able to drink at the tables outside under the lights strewn across the patio. It was kinda hard to navigate through the bar since it was so crowded, but that can happen with a lot of places on a Saturday night. Bottom line ? I would definitely come back here again.

Nice outdoor eating.

Went there on Wednesday night and had a 9pm reservation. However, when we got there we still had to wait 25 minutes despite there being empty tables outside. They appeared to be very short staffed and the servers were rushing around. Once we finally got seated our waiter was nice, but we had to ask to have some bread. It has a great outdoor dining patio and the food was okay. It just wasn't worth wait. I got the seared ahi tuna, which was over cooked and my boyfriend got a bbq chicken pizza which was good. The best part of the meal was their bread. It was a delicious honey wheat bread served warm. I'd go back just to have a drink in the bar with some friends.

I honestly don't understand where one review calls the servers ""animals."" My personal experiences here have been opposite, its great service that keeps me coming back! Not to mention the romantic atmosphere. The outside patio is glimmering, you could fall in love out there. The main dining room has a funny sort of nautical theme, which can throw you off but it grows on you. Now to the food...I have ordered the scallops a few times, served with a corn succotash and buerre blanc, also garnished with homemade potato chips! Very odd, yet they go great with the dish! Also a pretty good wine selection, the David Bruce pinot noir never fails. I had some munchies in the lounge while waiting for a table, pancetta wrapped tiger shrimp with citrus soy sauce. Suddenly I'm hungry...I will be back!

great atmosphere

Went to check out World Cafe last Friday with a friend after passing it many-a-times and never having the chance to drop in. We were seated promptly at the patio on a very chilly night but with the heat lamps blaring, we were warm all night. Our waiter was very friendly, albeit felt he checked on us one too many times that night. However, I'd rather that than slow/lack of service! Food was great - had the sea bass while friend dined on the linguini pasta. Very affordable pricing. Menu limited though. Overall, found the experience definitely worth repeating.
