  1. If you can go for Hawaiian food, head for the Loft.
    Jongewaard's in Bixby Hills is fairly close and is well regarded here. I find it hard not to stop there if I'm driving south on the I405.
    Hof's Hut is a local chain that has a very large breakfast selection; I've found them to be reliable for breakfast.
    Hopefully someone will suggest an Indian option in the area.

      That Hof's is under construction... will soon be Lucille's.

      1. re: Oh Robin

        My bad, should have checked their website to verify Google. Nearest locs would be Bixby Knolls or Los Alamitos.
        Another Polly's is near B&B.

        1. re: DiveFan

          I think the Polly's on Atlantic near B&B is kind of bad. I like the one near the Traffic Circle, on Los Coyotes, more.

          There's also a Hof's on PCH at Marina Pacifica.

    2. Bake & Broil is the best breakfast in the greater LB area. Hof's is good. I haven't been there for breakfast, but closer is Katella Deli, who has great pastries--could be very good at breakfast.

        In Cerritos, on Norwalk, Polly's Bakery Cafe aka Polly's Pies for Belgian waffles with fresh berry topping, french toast, cinnamon rolls, muffins. Breakfast meats are better than average. Egg combos come with a choice of cinnamon roll or muffin. The only thing I don't like is the coffee (too weak).

          South Street Deli in the mall used to be quite nice, similar to Katella Deli, another good quasi-NY style deli family restaurant place.

          1. re: MaryT

            I miss South Street Deli so much. It's even more of a shame since nothing has gone in that space since it closed. Loved the art deco style.

            1. re: MaryT

              They were actually the same company.

              1. re: justagthing

                Yeah, I even remember when Katella was where Polly's Pies is now, on Katella in Los Alamitos just east of the 605 and they had a PA for the crowd waiting in the parking lot. And there was at least 1 other, maybe even 2 other locales over in the south bay. Sorry to hear the SS Deli location in the mall closed, that is sad.

        2. If you are up for it...there are a few great places to get a Chinese style breakfast on the weekends:
          Caanan on South St.

          1. Cafe Latte 'da on Valley View north of Orangethorp has fresh food with a lot of variety. For greasy breakfast burritos with spicy salsa go to Boy's on Artesia and Marquardt. And there is a Japanese bakery (la baguette?) off Artesia (and Marquardt?-sorry it's somewhere over there ),awesome Japanese/French pastries. It seems they had some sort of quiche options as well, but I haven't tried them yet. These are all in Cerritos proper, but none are sit-down establishments - all order at the counter and wait for your name to be called. I wonder if Knott's has any good biscut and gravy options in Buena Park?

              Could it be a Paris Baguette? There is one listed at 17416 Carmenita Rd, Cerritos. I remember driving by one up there but forgot exactly where it was.
              (It's a Korean chain but close enough). Nice pastries.

            2. Original Pancake House in Anahiem. It's worth the drive.
