Little Ruby is yet another Australian cafe, and this new Santa Monica spot serves mostly stuff you’d expect: avocado and vegemite toasts, healthy sounding bowls, and of course, excellent coffee. There’s not a whole lot that differentiates Little Ruby from the rest of the Aussie cafes in LA, except for being open at night, when they serve burgers and pastas. It’s a good option for breakfast in Santa Monica, but if you’re specifically looking for an Australian cafe, there are better options around.
