Late Night Eats in South Bay?

Hi all,

I have a high-school friend from SF - whom I haven't seen for 10 years - who's flying down to Long Beach next Thursday nightand wants to meet up for food after she lands. Problem is, her flight touches down at 8PM and she still needs to pick up luggage, rent a car, blahblahblah...,so I doubt that she'll be available until after 9:30PM. She said that she's willing to drive anywhere from Long Beach to Torrance/Gardena (where I work), so that's nice of her.

Does anybody have any suggestions of relaxed places to go to and catch a bite to eat late at night? Ideally, somewhere chill and not to expensive; a place to have fun eating and chatting and catching up. Stuff like that. :) Thanks, all!

  1. If you want a place where you can actually hear each other, maybe the Hof's Hut in Bixby Knolls? I think they stay open pretty late even during the week. Probably a good idea to give them a call. Couple of things in their favor are comfortable seating, easy parking, and if I remember correctly, a full bar. Also excellent fresh peach pies (and pies in general).

    1. Shore House Cafe on 2nd St., but I prefer the one in Seal Beach on Main and PCH. In Cerritos, you can try Four Seasons Cafe off South St.
