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.

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

This restaurant is a little gem and I LOVE it! While the menu is large and all of the food is delicious, I tend to order the Mediterranean dishes. The hummus, chicken pita sandwich, and coffee are wonderful! The pasta salad is one of my favorites. It is very light but flavorful; in fact, I have used their catering services... More

This is a great place to go to in the morning/afternoon time. I went twice for breakfast/brunch and thw food was good and the view was even better. This is a very tiny place and can be missed, but sooo worth looking for!
