Excellent breakfast, views of the beach.....relaxing

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... read more

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

Oceanview cafe is wonderfully situated to offer a view of the ocean but a little hidden behind the very popular and equally excellent Uncle Bill's Pancake House. Oceanview may be smaller and unprepossing but the budget breakfast is excellent fare; scrambled eggs and hash browns proudly served by the owner with his very own home made salsa. Every effort was...

Oceanview Cafe in Manhattan Beach, CA is a great place to go for fresh food, good service, and a view of the Pacific Ocean that is only a few black up from the beach. While the restaurant is dwarfed by a pancake house, the good news is that Oceanview is closer to the beach and has a wonderful view. All... More

The Oceanview Cafe is a great little breakfast place with a view of the Pacific Ocean. It adds a little Mediterranean flair to the typical breakfast flair. It is not a very big place so get there early on a weekend or expect a wait.

My daughter and I stumbled upon this great cafe and so glad we did. We had the most delicious panini and each ordered our own salad...all for under $20. We were there about 4 and were the last ones served for the day so must be open for breakfast and lunch. I would definitely go back and try them for... More
