Manhattan Beach Cafe - Open Late

navystreet Mar 24, 2013 07:56 PM

I'm looking for a cafe or bakery in Manhattan Beach that is open until at least 10pm on weekdays and a good place to have a conversation with 4 people. More coffee and dessert than dinner food, but full menu is a plus. Something similar to Sweet Lady Jane or MILK on Beverly would be perfect. Is Neighborhood Grinds a good place for a conversation? Could also be Redondo Beach or Torrance if it's by the 405. Thanks!

    Creme de la Crepe is next door to the Kettle and much better for dessert. They are open until 10 PM.

      Have you tried The Kettle? Open 24/7/365 and they are a very good place for conversation. They have some nice desserts, but they are more of an "upscale" coffee shop in the traditional sense of the word (and not the Peet's/Starbucks sense). http://www.thekettle.net/

        neighborhood grinds is a small place and can, indeed, be a good place for conversation.

        their pastry, however, is usually sold out by evening.
