Imagine Christmas, Thanksgiving and the 4th of July all rolled up into one holiday. India’s days-long Diwali, the Festival of Lights is that kind of spectacular celebration. Goodness presides over Indian neighborhoods. At least for the month of November.

Thanks to Café 212 Pier owner, Roopinder Bhullar, Diwali is celebrated year-round in Santa Monica. Sublime snips of cardamom and cashew appear in heavenly Indian cookies. Vegan versions of American classics such as chocolate whoopie pies, oatmeal cookies and tofu blueberry muffins are also served.  Organic coffee and Indian chai brews while writers pour their souls onto computer screens. Earnest conversations also flow between bites of superfood chocolate truffles.

 Cardamom and cashew cookies
compliment smooth and spicy chai.

Golden Globe nominated The Shipping News was written at Café 212 Pier. (The film starred Kevin Spacey, Julianne Moore, Cate Blanchett and Dame Judi Dench.) The iconic TV show, Seinfeld filmed here. Is it the food, the architecture or the ambience that lures TV and film industry types to Café 212 Pier?  Find out for yourself on your next trip to the beach. Love to read your comments and  your take on Café 212 Pier.
