Cora's Coffee Shoppe
Cora's Coffee Shoppe, a short walk from Santa Monica beach, is part coffee house and part cafe. The interior of this smooth-stucco building has lots of wood accents and a black and white tiled floor. Seating consists of a few small tables and a bar area with stools. Outdoors, there is a patio covered by an arched bougainvillea-filled arbor and several dining tables. Breakfast specialties include orange pancakes with fresh berries; short-rib tacos and chicken salad are lunch options. At dinner, beef, turkey, and eggplant burgers, as well as rigatoni, are added to the menu.
