Today at ATAK Interactive's weekly Lunch Club LA we visited a local Santa Monica favorite called Bergamot Café in Bergamot Station. This seemed to be a busy week for everyone in the group and we all commented on how good it felt to finally be done! Our good friend Brian from Hoopla Promo joined us this week, and we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him on a personal level.
Brian is the owner of Hoopla Promo which is a family owned company specializing in promotional products. His vision and skill is taking his family’s company to a whole new level and we’re excited to see how it grows. We knew Brian was a nice guy on a professional level, but as we were talking to him he also mentioned that he volunteered at a school for disabled children in Asia. What a great guy, right? Needless to say, we are proud to be associated with him and his company and we are thrilled he joined us for lunch today!
As for the food, we have nothing but compliments! Everyone got something different and had already started eating before I had time to grab my camera to take pictures. The sandwiches were made on thick fresh bread and the salads were full of flavor. They even had special drinks like Penny’s Fresh Mint Lemonade and Blackberry Jasmine Green Iced Tea. The seating outside was perfect for a larger group and we had no trouble finding a table to eat and have great conversation. Having a canopy over the seating area kept everyone cool and comfortable too.
If you have some time, make sure to walk around a little and check out the many art galleries in Bergamot Station after you've eaten. There are tons of interesting works to be seen. In addition, take a second to look at the buildings themselves, Bergamot Station used to be an old railroad station from 1875 through 1953.
We found Bergamont Cafe using a unique combination of online reviews, social media, local search, and keyword criteria. This led us to the website where we decided they would be a nice fit for the LA Lunchers this week…..
Catch you at the next lunch club!
