... Any suggestions?

  1. Bake 'N Broil in Long Beach, many threads already on this subj. in Long Beach and about this place. Also, if you want something different there are places for Chinese Breakfast in Cerritos and today I am trying a Cambodian breakfast place on Cherry in Long Beach.

    1. The Gaffey St Diner in San Pedro also has fans.

      1. This has been posted many times but Old Town on Main Street in Seal Beach is open only for breakfast and lunch.

          Only for breakfast and lunch? We go there (Main Street in Seal Beach) all the time for breakfast or dinner. Walt's Warf is open for lunch and dinner. The bbq place is open for dinner, and I'm sure there are others. Seafood Grotto has moved to Lampson Ave. in Seal Beach about one block west of Garden Grove city line.
          For a real "Homey" breakfast place on Main Street try the little place (I think it's called the Main Street Cafe - the one with a Dutch door) toward the middle of the north side of the street. A lot of the locals eat there. Also, both the Irish pub/cafes have pretty good breakfasts. Kinda Lahaine (did I spell it right?) is now open again at the corner near the pier. Breakfast is pretty good there if you don't mind the squeeze seating around the perimeter.

            That reminds me. Nick's on Main St. in Seal Beach is great for breakfast burritos.

        2. Schooner or Later, on Alamitos Bay in Long Beach.
          As the OP said, Old Town, or any of the other little cafes on Main Street in Old Town Seal Beach. I particularly like Cafe Lafayette.

          1. In the Belmont Heights area of Long Beach, are a few good ones: The Coffee Cup at 4th and Grand, the Potholder at Newport and Broadway, the Starling Diner on 3rd and Termino, and closer to Downtown is the Park Pantry at Broadway and Junipero.

            And Bake n Broil.
