Can't beat having breakfast watch the pier in Manhattan Beach. Service was great. Enjoyed the apple chicken omelette with potatoes and sour dough cooked to perfection. The Saturday Brunch menu had a bit of everything, including pizza and lobster rolls. Definitely go back again.

No, it doesn't. At night, it's not too difficult to find a spot if you are willing to all a little. Or go with the Ocean Express from LAX area or Uber.

Down at the beach, overlooking the Pacific Ocean,The Strand House rises elegantly and iconically above the breakers. Like in an oceanfront home, friends become family and strangers become friends.
