Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We have visited Hermosa Beach twice now and Mickey's was our go to place for convenience items and great food. We were lucky enough to stay within blocks of Mickey's on both visits. The first thing we did last week after dropping off our luggage at our condo at the end of a long trip is walk down to Mickey's to get something to eat. It had been two years since we had been there and we were pleased that the place had not changed at all.

Unlike the restaurants at pier plaza that charge $9 for a hamburger and $3 for a coke, Mickey's serves great homemade items as well as pizzas, very large sub sandwiches, and salads all for a reasonable price. We had their pizza, sub sandwiches, lasagne, and meatball calzone. They were all delicious and freshly made and very large portions. Most things we ordered we were able to make 2-3 meals out of - the portions are that large!

All of the staff are very friendly and even remembered my name after one time of ordering. Micheal come over and sat down with us while we were waiting on our order and talked with us about our visit and told us some things about the area. He also stopped and talked with us outside of the store when we saw him out and about in the area.

Located away from the pier end of Hermosa Beach at 1st and Hermosa Ave. many may miss this little gem or dismiss it as just a small little deli/convenience store. Nothing could be farther from the truth. They do have a few outdoor tables and one large table indoors if you wish to eat there. Or you can call ahead or walk in with your order and they'll have it ready for you in about 20 minutes to take with you. They also have a good selection of drinks including wine and beer as well as small assortment of other convenience items.

If you are anywhere in the area you have to give this place a try. It is not a fancy overpriced sit down restaurant - if you want that go down to the pier. But if you are looking for a reasonably priced, homemade, take out meal, Mickey's is the place to go.

The subs at Mickeys are hard to beat. If you're visiting from out of town and want the real deal -not a tourist rip off- try Mickey's. authentic South Bay!

This is a great little store and italian takeout joint just steps from the beach in Hermose Beach. It's been there for decades, and is definitely a locals hangout. Need beer and snacks? They have it. Need a calzone to make your mouth water? Give them 20 minutes and it's yours. A must do stop for a day at the Beach in Hermosa. Or on a boat in King Harbor. Or...

My wife and four boys had another outstanding lunch from Mickey's. We visit Mickey's each time we come to Hermosa Beach on vacation and we've always had great food. The sandwiches are fresh and delicious. We usally get a few sandwiches and then head to beach for lunch in the sun. Highly recommended!

We went here twice on our stay and both times the food was amazing. The large sandwiches can easily be shared as they load em up and the pizza was fantastic as well. Great great value.
