Beach Cafes In/Near Los Angeles?

I am still on the hunt for the perfect cafe in or around Los Angeles (preferably with a view of the ocean) where my husband and I can go read our books while sipping coffee. Google shows me lots of expensive beachside restaurants, but that is not what I am after. Outside Los Angeles within a 1-2 hour drive is fine, too.

Two days In LA

will be in LA for a week in late July but only 2 days are mine. Alone, staying near the Getty. As I have not been in this city for more than a day in 40 years and aside from seeing the Getty, would love any recommendations of food, entertainment, neighborhoods to walk (if such a thing even exists here).

Laundry near Los Angeles Convention Center

According to my hotel (Westin Bonaventure), they don't provide laundry service - only drycleaning - and the nearest place to do it is "a 15-minute drive away." What's the best way to get this done?

Flying into LAX on Dec 25th, with kid, long layover: argh. Advice?

My family including young kids (aged five and up) is flying into LAX on Dec 25th, arriving at around 6:30 AM after a fifteen-hour flight from Australia. We have a seven hour layover. What should I expect from LA traffic on that day? What, if anything, will be open? How easy will it be to call cabs? Any recommendations for kid-friendly things to do, bearing in mind the time constraints, possibly-grumpy kids?

My girlfriend and I have lived, pool-less, in LA for about 3 years now. We decided that we'd take a little mini-vacation this weekend and check out some part of the city we'd never seen.
