Manhattan Beach brunch?

We have some relatives staying in Manhattan Beach on a Sat/ Sun stopover en route back to Australia, and would like to take them for brunch on the Sunday morning. . We live on tbe east side of town and are not familiar with the beach communities.Where is a good place for brunch - preferably a place that takes reservations? They are on Highland Ave near the beach - are there any good places within walking distance? We are happy to drive anywhere as long as there is parking nearby! Thanks for your recommendations.

  1. Highland Avenue is a long street - do you know where they are staying? If they're downtown it must be Shade Hotel, which has good breakfast and lunch items and is peaceful in the morning (unlike at dinner). It's not a bad choice. If they want something else, they're only two blocks from La Creperie on Highland, which is stylish and serves good crepes and omelettes. Nothing much special comes to mind for a Sunday brunch within walking distance...
