Summer House Santa Monica
When you want to eat at an actual table and not at an airport gate next to a screaming toddler, Summer House Santa Monica is a decent option. Like its Lincoln Park location, string lights and hanging plants decorate the space. Though handhelds like chicken sandwiches, burgers, and grilled fish tacos aren't mindblowing, they’re all more reliable than your flight that's been delayed twice. They also have some starters like pita and hummus or chips and salsa if you want to bring some plane snacks.
Located in Terminal 2, Main Hall
