A delicious and healthy alternative to Uncle Bill's

Oceanview is right next door to uncle Bills and a few steps closer to the ocean. The surprising thing is that with only 8 tables, all outside, it is rarely full while Uncle Bill's is usually overflowing. There are lots of great choices here. I love their salads and their veggie omelette is to die... read more

Really good selection of omelettes. Great place to go if you want to avoid wait at Uncle Bill's next door.

This place can get packed, especially since its right next to Uncle Bill's (also VERY busy). But there is a reason......it serves GREAT food (especially the croissant breakfast sandwiches!) and has amazing views of Manhattan beach. It has a nice walkway in front for a leisurely walk afterwards beachside. Definitely coming back again, and again....

Two girlfriends and I were visiting Manhattan Beach on a Saturday. After walking around the beach and shopping areas, we looked for a place to eat. We passed many places with no ocean views, and many that were extremely noisy with the throngs of 20 and 30 somethings eating and visiting with friends. We found the Ocean View Café on... More

I've been enjoying this hidden gem for 20 years. It has become a bit more popular but is still under rated by the local straight jacket crowd. Enjoy this place! Ask for the baguette bread! Delicious hummus too!

I recently visited the LA area for a couple of days. While in Manhattan Beach I was strolling the streets and searching my smart phone for breakfast places. I liked the looks of the Oceanview so I went in and am I glad I did. I had an excellent late morning breakfast with a beautiful view and superb service on... More

Whenever I'm in the West LA beach area on Sunday mornings, I make it a point to reserve for brunch at Ocean view Café. It's a couple blocks up from the beach and pier and is one of the only places in the area that takes reservations. Meter parking is typically available but you may have to walk a few... More
