The Rose Cafe is a place that I tend to go a few times a month. The California cuisine is always great, the staff is always polite and both patios and the deli counter sitting area are always good for some people watching. The Rose Cafe may have the most attentitive staff in all of Venice if you dine outside on the patio. They do not skip a beat, and you are never left waving for a waiter of busperson to help you with something. The prices are reasonable, and they always have parking, which is validated.
