You cannot do much better than this in Manhattan Beach for breakfast. It's definitely a laid back, old school, casual atmosphere type place but the service and food are top notch. The omelette with chorizo is my go to and comes with a ton of food. I usually get banana nut muffins and hash browns with mine. Their bacon and... More

Very convenient to Manhattan Beach-goers. Opens at 6:30 am and the food (especially the home-made Jalapeno Hash) is really good and priced just right.

If you arrive mid morning on a weekend be prepared to wait for up to 30 minutes for a table/booth but the wait is worth it. The selections are extensive and the portions are large. Seating is available either at the counter or at a table/booth. Many of the servers have been there for many years. Although the ownership changed... More

Gotta love The Local Yolk Cafe! We're local and have been frequenting here for years. It's a classic beach cafe perfect for those pancake breakfasts on the weekends. The staff ... fantastic! Excellent customer service, friendly, prompt, and they take the initiative to get to know you. Perfect location near the beach, with the American Diner atmosphere. They have outdoor... More

We loved the All-American Coffee Shop decor and its classic 'eggs and... ' approach to breakfast. Pancakes, light and fluffy come with just about everything but go for an order of their cracking sourdough toast too! Great coffee and fast service with a smile, I was staying next door at The Sea View Inn and this spot is so close... More

If you just look in, you might continue walking. The place isn't fancy and the decor is a "well-loved, well-worn beach town" look, and the place almost always busy. Take a chance--it's worth it. Tables turn over quickly (but the staff isn't pushing you out), the service is quick, the staff is relaxed and friendly (even though very busy), and... More
