Biking from Santa Monica to Manhattan Beach along the bike path. Any good pancakes and omelettes near the Pier? Hopefully patio seating? Thanks.

    Uncle Bill's Pancake House is pretty close to the pier, I believe. I didn't find their pancakes all that tasty when I went but it is nevertheless very popular. I think I saw outdoor seating too.

        Martha's on 22nd Street in Hermosa is always popular and right off the Strand.

          I really like the Kettle, the banana pancakes are tasty. It's just a couple of blocks up from the pier.

            The Kettle has solid breakfasts. I haven't been impressed with Uncle Bill's. The lines are huge on weekends and I didn't think that the food was worth it.

            You can also try the Local Yolk in the north end of MB.

              Ocean Diner in Hermosa. Not far, but uphill all the way from the beach; the way back is all down!
              How is the 'new' Joes in Hermosa for pancakes?

              Link to downtown MB business association. Maybe some other possibilities.

                My favorite breakfast/lunch place in the area is Martha's 22nd Street Grill in Hermosa Beach. Yes, they have a patio. As does Uncle Bill's Pancake House in Manhattan Beach, although the food isn't as good (but still good enough). Unless you get there early, expect an exceptionally long wait at either place.

                  When I ride Marina del Rey to Redondo and back, I stop at either Cheesecake Factory down there (I know) or Ruby's Diner b/c they're easy and have good bike lock-ups.

                        sorry emme, thought that they were looking for a break at their half way point before the return the way I had read the post. Anyway Jeryy said thanks so he got what he came here for. Sorry for the confusion!

                          no prob.. i ride along there as well, and sometimes i stop at different places, aside from just the turnaround depending upon what i feel like eating, when i'm hungry, the vibe, how busy the places are, etc... cheers and happy eating!

                    Try the Coffe Cart on Highland one half block south of Manhattan Beach Blvd on the East side of the street.. Just up the hill from the Pier a Total Locals Place..

                        Local Yolk is excellent. It's at the north end of Manhattan Beach though. Great pancakes, better in general than other places I've eaten in MB.
