If you ever find yourself driving past santa monica on the 1, and you happen to be hungry, then you MUST stop & try Malibu Farms. It is such a magical little spot to eat at (fresh & organic, local). We ate there, our 2nd time this last weekend and it was just as good as the first time we did! It sits on this olllllld pier, over looking Surfrider surf spot. Behind me in this photo is the cafe at Malibu Farms. They serve delicious breakfast & lunch! Once I got the fried egg/arugula/smoked salmon combo and then this time, I got the Surfers Rancheros, and it was nothing short of delightful! I’ve seen the swedish mini pancakes, and those look killer too. They even have crunchy ice for your water.
Tip: You can get free parking if you park on PCH but it’s a bit of a walk. You can park to the right (above those rocks) for $5 every half hour/$15 max. There is a restaurant that serves dinner, at the entry of the pier (2nd pic) that I am sure is just as delicious! But definitely try the end of the pier one first! Great staff, great food & great ambiance.
Tip: Bring extra money to shop directly across the way!
