Great Location; Standard Kid FareFlag review
Back on the Beach restaurant offers standard kid fare -- burgers, fries, chicken fingers. But that's not why you are there. Located right on the sand in the heart of the Santa Monica State Beach, the cafe is a chill spot for families, including its own little playground to hit while you wait for them to call your name -- 30 mins to one hour on the weekends. It also shares a parking lot with the Annenberg Community Beach House, with its free public pool. If you can't afford the Jonathan Club, this is the spot for you.
Tips for Families
Get there by 11:30am on weekends, put your name on the list and hit the playground while you wait.
