1447 2nd St, Santa Monica, CA 90401
Went here for breakfast on a Sunday. I had walked by this place several times and never noticed it until my friend took me here. We only had to wait about 15 mins. The place looks like it greats crowded, so I'd expect to wait. They have a big menu. The lunch items looked great too, but I ordered an omlette and loved it. The portions were huge. I will definately go back.
Spectrum Athletic Clubs
2425 Olympic Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90404
Was a member for over a year. Moved, so I went to cancel my membership only to find that they had changed the cancellation policy. It required you give 2 months notification of when you wanted to cancel ... this was different than what it said in my original contract. I told them I moved and was no longer able to go to the gym, but they didn't budge and continued to charge my credit card they had on file. I'm still disputing this case. The facilty is also very small and has been under construction. When the construction was finally done, it wasn't any better, but yet they still raised gym fees. This gym is WAY overpriced for what you get. Look elsewhere b/c if you try to cancel early, they'll still charge you for 2 months!
Hotel Casa Del Mar
1910 Ocean Way, Santa Monica, CA 90405
The hotel lobby and bar area is very big and beautiful. Grab a seat by the windows, order a drink and watch the sunset. Love coming here on first dates. Nice environment to talk and get to know someone knew. You can sit by the fireplace, the bar, by the TVs, or on the cozy couches.
