Bring a huge appetite!

The only thing disappointing about OPH is the fact that there is always a line. But it is definitly worth the wait. Restaurant can get a bit claustraphobic. Food is good. Basted Eggs are so good. Their Corned Beef hash is pretty tasty.

We've gone to this restaurant many times and it's always a very pleasant experience. The food is delicious the ingredients are truly fresh. The orange and grapefruit are truly fresh squeezed. The servings are generous i.e. the omelettes are huge and they serve at least 6-7 pancakes per plate. There are many choices that are sweet and savory. They are... More

I have been to a few OPH locations in my home state and ended up at the Redondo Beach location during a recent trip with family. The service was great, the facility was clean, and the food was delicious - just as I have come to expect from the locations back home. OPH has the best plain pancakes I've ever... More

This place was very busy lot of people. Their menu is quite basic and everything is at an extra. Our waiter did not get everything we ordered he missed some items, and took three other orders after ours. Everyone else got their items first we were the last ones.

This is the best Breakfast place in the beach area for anyone who loves Pancakes or Crepes ! They also do great Omelets; the rest is also good, not amazing though. You cannot excel is everything... Their Crepes are amazing - Strawberries are fresh - Blueberries are good too , yet not fresh. I like to mix Strawberry & Blueberry... More

The OPH is always there as it has been for the last few decades. Eggs like you like'em, pancakes that are cuttable with your fork, not a fork lift and bacon as you ordered. Your coffee cup is always full. What else can I say about a breakfast place.

I WISH they could go back to MAPLE BACON! The bacon is still good, especially if u get it wiggly...slightly chewy!... More

Servings are huge! Quality of the food is excellent. Omelets and pancakes are the best I've tasted. It wouldn't take much to rate this restaurant as excellent. Improving the coffee would help. Remodeling to create ambience and adding insulation would be the ultimate coup. Even without improvements, plan to arrive early or be prepared to wait in line. It is,... More

This unusual restaurant that is open for only breakfast and lunch does a great business. The selections, food and service are all very good.....as is the service. Almost always a wait outside before you can get seated and the noise level is way too high! I think this may be a sign of great success.
