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

We stopped by for lunch while travelling through Seal Beach. We were attracted by the outdoor seating & umbrellas. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful with their numerous menu selections to make sure we got what we wanted. It was awesome - especially the blueberry pancakes. Worth a stop!!

What a treat to have lunch on the patio with the sun shining eating a good meal. My Philly sandwich was yummy and filling. Fries were hot and tasty. Even the pickle was good. Talked briefly with the family at the next table who were having breakfast for lunch as their food looked great, which they agreed. Portions are large... More

The restaurant has both an indoor and an outside patio. We elected to eat on the patio. Although it is located on Pacific Coast HIghway, we found it rather quiet and we had an enjoyable dining experience. I ordered a California Burger with fries. It comes with all the condiments so that you can prepare the burger exactly as you... More
