Long Beach breakfast joints, there seem to a plethora of joints in just very few blocks...

What's the best of this grip?

And let me know in case I'm missing any:

Tony's Breakfast Place on 4th.
Coffe cup Cafe on 4th.
Egg Heaven on 4th.

Sterling diner, on 3rd.

The Potboilder (sp?) on Broadway,

chuck's home of the weasel.

Maybe there are other too.

Which ones are your favorites? It seems like they might have more breakfast joints per acreage than neighorbhoods in LA/.

    1. I've always enjoyed my breakfasts at the Coffee Cup

      1. Of the group you mention, my pick would be Coffee Cup Café. Chuck's is a beach joint and fine for what it is, but CCC is better.

        Friends love the Potholder (that's the one on Broadway). I haven't been yet. Since I've moved a bit north to the Plaza, I don't get to Belmont Heights except on special occasions.

        Jongewaard's Bake & Broil is very good-- but it's not in the Belmont Heights/Belmont Shore/Gay Ghetto area you're discussing.

        1. I know it's not on your list, but I would have to say Schooner or Later in the Marina.
