We choose here because one of the staff came out and told us this was the best place for breakfast! We took him for his word and had an amazing breakfast. Green eggs scramble and the Manhattan Beach breakfast sandwich!

North End is our favorite breakfast place in MB. It's always crowded and for good reason: amazing variety, tons of healthy options and great coffee too!

Whenever we visit Manhattan Beach we stop here. The food is always delicious and fresh. The menu has a wide variety of items to choose from plus they also serve beer and wine. You can sit inside or outside and enjoy the view. Weekends are typically busy, so plan on a bit of a wait. Parking in the area is... More

Had the Rosie breakfast sandwich and an iced coffee with almond milk. Had the breakfast sandwich on an everything bagel. Exceptional balance of flavors - sausage, hard fried egg, mild green chiles, pepper jack cheese, red onion. Quick service - great flavors.

I drink decaf coffee and the coffee was always hot and fresh! After the first purchase of bagels the staff remembered how my grandson liked his prepared - now that is service!

Decent food with outdoor seating. I arrived early as they opened and got one of the few outdoor tables with view of the ocean. Food is good, but a bit pricey. I got what was basically an eggs ranchero with a a flavorful green sauce on one side and an equally savory red sauce on the other. The breakfast potatoes... More

On our search for California piers I decided to look to see if there were any nearby places that had been featured on "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" and one was close by. We found a seat right away in the casual cafe. I had a tasty bowl of tomato basil soup served with a delicious piece of crusty caprese. My... More

A great local spot that was featured on Dine-ins, Drive-ins and Dives. They serve breakfast and lunch now. (both excellent) They have a diverse menu, with lots of items. The "local" way to order, is pick from their whiteboard of specials. There are tables inside and outside, but you are not able to drink at the outside tables.
