Always good place for breakfast and Brunch. Prepare to wait for a table as it’s always busy especially on weekends . Enjoy a table outdoors with an ocean view.,

The food was good but it’s definitely not worth the wait!! Go somewhere else without a line and you can get food of the same quality or better.

Usually a line for tables at this classic Manhattan Beach breakfast-lunch eatery. Don't let the name fool you, pancakes are only one of dozens of choices. View the Pacific Ocean from outdoor tables. Reasonably priced and very good food.

This place was awesome. Fantastic service; fantastic location; fantastic food; reasonable price for what you get. I never would've dreamed I'd have to go to a tony LA beach community to find the best pan-fried cornbeef hash I've ever eaten. Amazing. The buttermilk pancakes are...More
