There are eight Perry’s Café and Rentals sprinkled across Santa Monica and Venice. What began as a single hot dog stand has grown into a business providing bike and roller blade rentals, beach butler service, and café cooking that goes beyond the limits of the hot dog. You can also snag a boxed lunch for the beach. But go for the bikes, not the food.
You can also book a spot on the “Legends Beach Bike Tour’ which is a guided cycling tour through Santa Monica and Venice Beach, on a classic Schwinn cruiser. There’s parking in a private lot at the 1200 Palisades Beach location.
