What You'll Get

Before they were used as a human fashion accessory, fig leaves were used to hide a tree's shame. For $20, today's Groupon gets you $40 worth of upscale southern-Californian fare from Figtree's Café & Grill on the Venice Beach Boardwalk. The café is open every day at 8 a.m. and closes based on the weather, usually around 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. This deal cannot be combined with the 8 a.m.–9 a.m. half-price breakfast special.

While you relax on the oceanfront patio and await lunch—starting with appetizers such as skewered rosemary ahi tuna with olive tapenade ($11.95) or Navajo corncakes with black-bean chili, feta, avocado, and sour cream ($10.95)—you can marvel at the human zoo rushing by. Play "guess that person's age and social-security number," or belt out a friendly hello to a Matthew McConaughey lookalike as he jogs by unsurprisingly shirtless. Before long, the amiable, chilled-out staff will come bearing a heavy turkey bacon burger with arugula, red onion, and tomato ($13.55); or the veggie dagwood pile precariously high with zucchini, eggplant, roasted peppers, portobello mushrooms, mozzarella, and pesto on focaccia ($11.75).

Figtree's also serves up big pre-surf and post-party breakfasts, such as puffed pancakes stuffed with seasonal fruit and topped with a flurry of powdered sugar ($11.95); and the Olympian omelette with spinach, feta, tomatoes, and Greek olives ($11.95). The café also hoards a reserve of assorted organic and luxury teas (yerba mate, $3.50) and fruit smoothies ($4.75 each) such as the cheap thrill with strawberries, bananas, orange juice, and raspberry swirl.


The Los Angeles Times mentions Figtree's Café, and Time Out Los Angeles recommends it after a stroll along the beach. Citysearchers give Figtree's Café a perfect five stars. TripAdvisors give the café four owl eyes, more than 120 Yelpers give it 3.5 stars, and 82% of Urbanspooners like it:

  • This is the best brunch I've found along the beach front and I heartily recommend it to you and yours. – Stacey E., Yelp
  • We sat outside on the patio and it's a great place to eat while people watching and seeing the beach and ocean. – JSNsquared, TripAdvisor
