We went there on a recommendation from a local. A very friendly spot with lots of families having breakfast. Food was good, but not particularly better than the average breakfast joint.

We came here early in the morning to fuel up for a flight across the Pacific out of LAX - and we're glad we did. That Diners, Drive-ins & Dives fellow should come here. Great service, decent coffee, and the food was fantastic. They serve large portions. The jalapeno hash was heavenly. Highly recommended. If we fly out of LAX... More

Great local place, filled with families and kids on the weekends. Nice place to go for breakfast followed by a walk on the Strand. Really close to the beach. Nice people -- many long-time employees. The food is pretty standard breakfast fare, but the Local Yolk Omelette, with guacamole, is terrific. Good pancakes, too.

We stayed in Manhattan Beach, California in July and our hotel was right across the street from the Local Yolk Restaurant. There are quite a few restaurants within walking distance to the hotel so we only ate at the Local Yolk once. The restaurant has a wonderful local, comfortable vibe. There are a few tables outside that have a great... More

Stopped in for breakfast while staying in Manhattan Beach. I was not disappointed! The Manhattan Beach omelet was wonderful! Green chilis, mushrooms, bacon and jack cheese. Yummy!!!

Go early, because this place gets super busy. Our family went in for breakfast during a weekend trip and everyone was pleased. Super fast and super delicious.

We ate breakfast here while vacationing in Manhattan Beach. I got an egg white omelet and although I asked for it dry, it was a little greasy. My family got other breakfast food and they were all very happy. Coffee is very good. So is the service. Food came quick.
