The Spitfire has been around since 1954 (it was previously known as Lindaire Coffee Shop). After 1991 it was named renamed Spitfire in homage of Santa Monica’s aviation history. In 1995, the dining area expanded and a bistro feel emerged. Now the restaurant is filled with WWII military and Douglas Aircraft memorabilia and a very family friendly feel. People travel to eat here all the time due to the nearby airport and soccer fields.
