Basix Cafe, located at 8333 Santa Monica Boulevard, on the corner of North Flores Street and Santa Monica Boulevard, is now open for limited hours and a very limited menu. “Re-Opening…” reads a post on their website. “Limited hours of operation; limited menu subject to change due to COVID-19 regulations & current conditions.”
A cook tells WEHO TIMES Basix Cafe opened this past Saturday, August 28, 2021. They closed on Sunday and plan to be open for the rest of the week from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The menu is limited to the coffee portion of the restaurant. They are serving coffee, muffins and other other baked goods. They are not serving food from the kitchen at this moment. As of this week the actual restaurant is closed as the cooks and staff get their bearing on getting back to being fully open.
When pressed on whether they were fully staffed or currently hiring, the cook, who chose to remain anonymous, said he believes they are fully staffed, but does not know for sure.
According to our source, Marix Tex Mex located next door at 1108 North Flores Street, is also on its way to a soft opening. It too was supposed to open this week, however, they are experiencing some delays. We are told the popular Mexican restaurant will open very soon.
When fully operational Basix Cafe is a neighborhood café serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Basix Cafe serves a menu of wood grilled pizza seasonal salads, house-made breads and pastries and “comfort food” at a reasonable price.
Over half of BASIX seating is at a large outdoor patio, great for people-watching and it is dog friendly outdoors.
Indoor dinning offers tables or seating at the bar where customers can enjoy a meal with a craft cocktail or a glass of wine. Their favorite wines are at a discounted price at “1/2 price bottle night” every Sunday and Wednesday when wines are available for ½ price by the bottle.
Basix also offers full catering services and an entire menu will be available for delivery to your home. Special requests are always welcome and they do their best to accommodate guests with allergies, special dietary needs, vegans and vegetarians.
