Stopped here our first morning in Manhattan Beach. We had a nice table outside, ordered inside then get a number and relax. The coffee was really great and the green chili...oh boy..yum. I had what looked like scrambled eggs with cheesy nachos on top, my husband had an egg sandwich with sausage. We really enjoyed our meal here and would... More

Great great attitude that is, every breakfast dish is a California treat. Avocado with everything... Not really but their breakfast potatoes are sautéed with cilantro and green onions to start. Really good coffee in an enormous cup. Alex at the register guides his kitchen crew with a skilled hand and he'll readily tell of of their favorite breakfast platters. Open... More

Wonderful breakfasts with large portions and great coffee. Lunches are amazing also. Friendly staff, fast service and great food make this a must visit when enjoying the north end of Manhattan Beach. Parking could be a problem, but there is a metered lot at Highland Ave. and Rosecrans Blvd.

Especially loved the juevos divorsados. Potatoes were crispy and cooked to perfection. Had to eat here more than once during our vacation since it was so good - which we rarely do.

Pricier than the diner local yolk across the street which we live and have been coming to for 15 years..but north end has great flavors, delicious coffee and a young vibe About it.. It's a quicker, more self serve type breakfast.. Or take to go.. Space is small so it is easier if there are only a few in your... More
