Looking in Long Beach

Housesitting in Long Beach this weekend and looking for some good eats. Nothing too fancy. Prefer a non- chain. We are near the intersection of PCH and Long Beach Blvd. but are willing to travel farther for something special. Thanks Hounds!

  1. For breakfast or lunch, try The Coffee Cup Cafe on 4th and Grand. Expect to wait. It won't take you long to get there. Not a chain, very casual.

    1. I like La Creperie in the Belmont Shore area. Yummy crepes and I love their cheese and pate appetizer plate!

      La Creperie Cafe
      4911 E 2nd St, Long Beach, CA 90803

      1. About 5 miles from where you are to Enrique's for some of the best and most innovative Mexican food in the greater LA area. Wonderful pork shank.

        6210 E Pacific Coast Hwy, Long Beach, CA 90803

        1. Open Sesame on 2nd in Belmont Shores (basically across the street from La Creperie) is great for tasty Lebanese food. I sometimes contemplate driving there from Burbank for their kafta or chicken tawook with garlic sauce. The fried cauliflower is great, too.

          1. Modica's on Ocean has a great Italian style sandwiches. We love the Smokin Joe
