Ate here for brunch on 1/3/15 and our server was Nessa. We arrived about 10am and waited about 30 minutes for an outdoor table... the good news is they have an outdoor bar so you can get a drink while you're waiting to be seated (what a great idea). They also have indoor seating. It's a fabulous location on the... More

This is our local breakfast-lunch default hangout. Right next to the docks of the Alamitos Bay Marina. Seating outdoors (long wait on weekends), and counter seating and tables inside (my preference). This is a very popular place, one which I avoid on weekends due to the long wait. It's a local legendary cafe, one not to miss if you are... More

Been meaning to stop here for years. Finally had chance. Even with cloudy weather, we sat out on patio. Loved the view and vibe. Had light appetizer and a couple cocktails, Service was great. Can't wait to go back and eat.

Good food right next to water. A long Beach favorite. Very crowded at lunch. Recommend a weekday breakfast.

It was a beautiful day but a bit overcast when we were deciding on lunch. We thought we could sneak in and get a table at Schooner or Later because of the cloudiness. Not so lucky as even though we were early people were waiting to get in. They told us 30 minutes but we were seated within 15. This... More

Located on the corner of the Marina this restaurant has a great outdoor patio that over looks the boats. It has a diverse menu and only serves breakfast and lunch. Try to get there early or be prepared to wait up to an hour ( yes it is that popular ) fortunately they have a small bar near the waiting... More

This place has everything we want for. We had breakfast there with friends. It was just the right view and weather that Long Beach can offer. How cool is it sipping your coffee looking at the yatch?! Outdoor sitting is the perfect spot. I ordered ham & cheese omelette with fruits and I think that was a lot. I didn't... More

They have the best bloody mary's! The seating out on the patio over looking the marina is gorgeous. The service was terrific. The biscuits and gravy were so so. My work companion's belgium waffle was outstanding. The coffee was great. But the atmosphere was the best, they don't make you feel rushed. Very relaxing and beautiful!

Great food and atmosphere. Service was great. Went back for Sunday breakfast and so many people we were grateful to have enjoyed it earlier in the week. Pumpkin muffins were great and fresh.

I agree with the review below that the place is looking a bit worn down but the food is still delicious. If you're in the area head here for breakfast and get the breakfast burrito or omelette - both amazing! Great spot right on the water
