The Kettle has been a Manhattan Beach fixture for a very long time. I especially like their honey-bean muffins.

The Kettle was a great surprise. Although it had good reviews, I find that I am not always impressed with places that others rate high. But, on my second visit to Manhattan Beach I decided to give it a try. The decor is attractive with...More
