Uplifters Kitchen on Ocean Park Blvd. in Santa Monica is the kind of anonymous-looking place you could drive past a hundred times and never give a second thought. Which would be the wrong thing to do. The coffee is great, and the menu of pastries, salads, and sandwiches is simple and delicious. You’ll be finding excuses to get here on the regular just to eat the biscuit breakfast sandwich.
