I had breakfast at a cute little latino inspired, contemporary corner cafe on Ocean Park Blvd. in Santa Monica. Yesterday, my sister was in a rush to get to work so we grabbed sandwiches. I had a chicken pesto with avo, and my sister grabbed a vegetarian sandwich, the Vegan Torta, which had a black bean spread. They have fresh fruit smoothies, so Kai had the Papaya, Mango, Strawberry. I had a ginger, mango, yoghurt drink, called Lassi’s. They were different, but I love the flavor of ginger even if the strands would get stuck in my teeth sometimes. Way to start the day with a healthy breakfast! The side salad was a simple spring mix with a light vinegarette, walnuts, and bleu cheese crumbles.
Today is Saturday so we had more time to wait 25 minutes for $3 arepas, Venezuelan inspired mini sandwiches, made with fresh baked arepa bread. Don’t have big eyes. One is tiny, but can prove to be quite filling. I tried the chicken and a vegetarian one that had avo, mango, cheese, and rosemary. It came with a pesto-ish sauce on the side. It was my 5 minutes of Heaven today. And they have tables set up front so you can bring your dog. We brought the cute Bonjook. ;D

Oh yeah, don’t forget the tea and coffees. They looked good. I don’t drink tea or coffee often though.
