Picnic Lunches in Manhattan Beach area

Hey all!

I'm new to Chowhound and hope someone can help me out with this. My girlfriend has work tomorrow and I'd love to surprise her with a picnic lunch. Is there a restaurant in the South Bay that sells a great picnic lunch? Or would I be better off going to Boccatos and building my own?

      Some great sandwiches & salads can be had to go at Manhattan Beach's North End Cafe.
      also Lemonade is a great recommendation or Le Pain Quotidien.

        I don't know about ready-made picnic meals, but I'd think Lemonade or Mickey's Italian Deli would be great to pick up some items for picnicking.
