The food is delicious both for breakfast and lunch and the service is always warm and friendly. I am sorry they do not serve dinner anymore because that was great too. The soups are good and I love the Good Earth sandwich-only place I ever eat something vegetarian! You can't go wrong with breakfast Mornings are always busy.

The menu is creative and well-executed. The restaurant is spotless and the staff on-point. Every meal I've had had been correctly prepared, the right temperature and served with courtesy. It's a favorite of every generation in our family. On the week-ends, be prepared to wait in line, all the local know what a great spot this is!

Breakfast and lunches are excellent. Great menu to select from, good quality food and a beach-town feel. Conveniently located right on Pacific Coast Highway in Seal Beach, close to Main Street. I personally enjoy the eggs benedict for breakfast and the Cluben for lunch.

Blackboard Bistro is a favorite of our family. The Pancakes are the best. Light, flluffy, melt in your mouth good, whether plain or with blue berries. The omelets are to die for. If you are a "health nut" try the brown rice and eggs. So good. You know a place is good when the bicyclers eat there.

Best eggs Benedict I’ve ever had. Poached eggs were just as I ordered, and hollandaise sauce is spot on -smooth, rich and with proper lemon zing. They have four or so options with the great hollandaise sauce. Service is good - attentive not hovering. In most instances they can accommodate your whims. I’m usually in the area for breakfast or...

I heart Blackboard Bistro...it possesses a finesse. The Bistro is casual and the people who dine and serve you are kind and everyone is happy. Simply a relaxing place to enjoy a delicious meal. There is a certain euphoria in the air. An element of relaxation. It was my mom's birthday and my brother and sister-in-law were visiting from DC;... More

Family recommended this place for lunch. (They serve breakfast and dinner also) What a great spot. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed a typical blue sky California day. The Stuffed Popeye Burger I had was delicious and cooked perfectly. Service was attentive and pleasant. If you're in Seal Beach looking for a great lunch spot look no further,... More
