There’s something iconic about spending time on a California beach. If you’re looking for a real taste of that beach scene, then Perry’s Café and Beach Rentals should be on your radar.

Guests can dine at the cafe and also rent beach essentials from Perry’s Café locations, like bikes, umbrellas, surf equipment, and more. Some of the best Santa Monica bike rentals are found at Perry’s. Anyone looking to explore the California beach lifestyle can find what they need here.

History of Perry’s Cafe

Guests have been enjoying Perry’s Café and Rentals for decades. The first locations were founded in 1977, when Perry’s began as a pair of seasonal pizza stands that catered to beach-goers.

Over the past 43 years, Perry’s has expanded their menu and their brand. Whether visitors are looking for fresh, healthy options or true comfort food, Perry’s Café has sustainably sourced meals. They have been catering for parties, weddings, and other events since 1995.

Perry’s also branched out from food into fun. Not long after opening, Perry’s Café began renting out equipment like boogie boards, skates, surfboards, and bikes. A retail section soon followed, providing guests with much-needed access to extra beach essentials. Whether beach-goers needed sunscreen, surfboards, or sandwiches, Perry’s stepped up to provide.

That’s not the only expansion Perry’s Café has implemented. For people who want a little structure in their beach explorations, Perry’s offers guided tours. Partnering with Blazing Saddles Beach Rentals on the Santa Monica Pier in 2004, Perry’s provides guided bike tours for Santa Monica guests year-round. This tour explores Santa Monica and Venice Beach, providing visitors a fun and helpful overview.

Perry’s Cafe Today

Beyond the beach itself, Perry’s is actively involved in the community. They are currently actively investing in the local bike-share program to complement their bike rentals. From volleyball courts and competitions, to Beach Butler seaside delivery, Perry’s makes beach amenities accessible for everyone.

Perry’s Cafe also has a community outreach program. To give back, they support charity walks for Heal the Bay and the American Heart Association, among others. Their active participation in the Venice Beach and Santa Monica community has helped the area become one of the top beaches in California. The City of Santa Monica has even presented Perry’s with sustainability and business awards over the years.

Perry’s Café can help you rest and relax or launch your day of play. No matter what you want out of your day at the beach, Perry’s will help.
