With its green ivy-covered patio, Cora’s feels like a little secret garden, but that’s also because it’s kind of a secret in general. Tourists somehow haven’t gotten to this cafe on Ocean in Santa Monica yet, so there’s never a wait to get inside. The food is what you’d expect from a fancy boutique hotel on a beach - they serve bruschetta poached eggs, Turkish style breakfasts, and bagels that come with burrata instead of cream cheese. But you’re here for the best huevos rancheros on the Westside. The eggs come in a perfect puddle of beans and ranchera salsa, and you won’t need a nap somehow aren’t gloppy at all.
