Coming to Long Beach....

tomorrow for a meeting at "The Grand". I will not partake in the company lunch so, where shall I go instead. The Grand is located on East Willow. I will have about 1 1/2 for lunch so, nothing too far away. Open to all types for lunch but, preferably not heavy meat things. He eats meat, I don't.

  1. No responses because the area is void of any decent dining from what I can tell.
    You might ask the concierge at the hotel.

      This is a conference center and it's right off the 405 at Lakewood Blvd. and E. Willow. Is there nothing in the area???

      1. re: Kitchen Queen

        Google the address "4101 E. Willow St., Long Beach, CA 90815" and "search nearby" for "restaurants" in the area and you'll see plenty of fast food places.

    2. Try the Coffee Cup Cafe on 4th and Grand. You'll find breakfast and lunch choices for meat and veggie eaters.

      1. You'll be about 5 miles from Open Sesame. Would that be too far?

          Thank you Susans and Servorg. I like the Open Sesame idea. How long will it take - Mapquest says 11 minutes. Really? No traffiic? In my research, I discovered the Lakewood Mall to be close. Saw "George's Greek Cafe". Do either of you know this place?

        2. Didn't know you were willing to drive. Maybe a little closer 4 miles.

          Jongewaard's Bake and Broil. Very popular with CH's, home style food and excellent cakes and pies made on the premises. The perfect lunch place.

              Fresh peach pie is in season.

              Street parking or free parking in the church parking lot across the street (everyday except Sunday).

                Thx Monku- Bake N' Broil did the trick. Took the counter 'cuz the wait was long(I had only 1 hr) He had a tukey sammy and LOVED that whole grain bread. I wasn' terribly impressed with anything but, for a lunch spot it was fine. We took away a slice of Red Velvet cake and chocolate cream pie - just ok but, I'd go again.
