    Cora’s Coffee Shoppe

    1802 Ocean Ave.

    Santa Monica

    Cuisine: Cafe / Coffee Shop / Tea Shop, Sandwich

    $$

    Don’t let the name of this easy-to-miss gem fool you: Cora’s is about as much like a bacon-and-eggs diner (think: Norm’s) as Katharine Hepburn is an actress like Heidi Montag. One bite of the burrata omelet or the filet mignon and horseradish sandwich will deliver that message loud and clear. This is an olde coffee shoppe for the 21st century. READ REVIEW

    $

    All hail the döner wrap, a fresh California take on European street food—it’s just the kind of thing that hits the spot at the end of a long day (or, honestly, anytime). READ REVIEW
