Martha's 22nd Street Grill, Hermosa Beach








Located so near the beach, there's sand on their sidewalk, Martha's is certainly a classier place than many on the beach.
The wait times on weekends (especially in summer) can be long, and sometimes the servers aren't as quick as I'd like - but
Martha's has always left me satisfied and glad I waited. It's also a great place to strike up a conversation, since the area
gets so many tourists. Their open air patio stirs up a great appetite with the sea breezes comin' in. Dress code: BEACH!
O
On a recent visit, I had their banana, walnut & cream cheese stuffed French toast.... Yum! Three pieces of French baguette
done to perfection. Unlike so many, Martha's shows off some style by putting together some original and unusual menu items.
The "Thai Scramble" is very different and has hummus in it (which really is not Thai, but: Who cares?) besides a mixture
of veggies, served on a bed of long grain rice. The "Smoked Salmon Omelet" has many times been my favorite
(yes, fish for breakfast!). Smoked salmon with cream cheese and scallions - it's very rich. Lunch offer many possibilities
like "Euro Garden Salad" filled with romaine, veggies, and a very unique dressing: cilantro Parmesan vinaigrette -
outa dis world! Great sandwiches too! You'll find the same distinctive flair (showin' off?) On all their menu items.

Go on - get some sand between your toes - and some exceptional good eats at Martha's 22nd Street Grill -
#25 22nd St. Hermosa Beach (310) 376-7786 Open daily 7AM to 3PM - street parking only. All credit cards accepted.

If anyplace in Manhattan Beach gets the rights to being called a landmark, this place is it! Started in April 1984, this place
has been a locals hangout for years. But if you go..... It's cool  - just relax and blend in. Soon, you be coming here like
the locals do. Top-notch service along with very personable and friendly people is what makes the Local Yolk one of my
favorites! (Oh... Yeah, the foods great too!)
O
Omelets like "Arnold's Favorite", "LA 'The Place'", "Al's El Porto", and "Raider's Revenge" (my favorite) are some of the
unique creations I feel sets a place like the Local Yolk apart from the usual, boring breakfast places. Raider's Revenge
comes with ham, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, onions, American cheese (make mine cheddar!), guacamole, sour cream
and "anything else we could think of." They have eggcellent benedicts! But try the Crab & Avocado benny for a real treat.
The Fabulous French Toast gets me drooling. If you're REALLY hungry, try the Gordita Burrito, but be warned - it's huge!
O
Besides being a superb place for breakfast, the Local Yolk also serves up some great lunch-time treats. Salads, Burgers,
sandwiches, as well as some very good Mexican food. Their "Manhattan Melts" sandwiches along with a bowl of soup
or chili is a good way to warm up if in winter time. For the groms and gremmies, (boy & girl surfers) check out the Little
Surfers menu. If you go just for a coffee, you gotta try one of their muffins too!
O
Go on - feel like a beach local (especially if you're not), put on some shorts and flip-flops and come try the Local Yolk.
Street parking only - feed the meter. 3414 Highland Avenue. (310) 546-4407 Oh, yeah... they deliver too

Located right next to the beach, with a great (dog-friendly too!) patio with a view, it's easy to see why Uncle Bill's pancake
house really packs 'em in. On weekends, I'd estimate the crowd outside waiting exceeds 30 people! Located at 1305
Highland Avenue. Open for breakfast & lunch, Uncle Bill's is a locals hangout, and also a tourist destination for many
years. Phone: (310) 545-5177 We have had a other people here wait on us, but Maria has always gone the extra mile
to make sure we had a good dining experience.
O
I've eaten at Uncle Bill's quite a few times - some good, some not so good. But, before I get sour on Uncle Bill's, I'll tell you
what I like. The Expo '73 omelet is tremendous! Packed with ham, bacon, sausage, onions, mushrooms, and topped with
meat sauce, sour cream & American cheese (yuk! Make mine cheddar), this omelet is big enough for two. Mitch's scramble
is another egg dish sure to please. Eggs, mild green Chiles & cream cheese. Yum! The thick sliced cinnamon raisin French
toast is another favorite, while "J.D's" French toast with strawberries & bananas is tops! To be honest - the pancakes are just
OK, but not anything out of the ordinary. Uncle Bill's has many pancake varieties, but frankly, I cannot recommend them.
Lunch offerings are splendid! From Sourdough #1 to #7 - you can't go wrong! Cool, crisp (and big!) salads, hot soup,
decent chili (why do they have to put American cheese on everything?!), and great hamburgers. Uncle Bill's is the
quintessential beach hangout after hitting the waves.

Four Daughters Kitchen, Manhattan Beach











Great food, good (not great) service, great location = A great choice for either breakfast, lunch or dinner. Its tough in Manhattan
Beach, lots of good places to eat. Anyway, I've had this on-again off-again relationship with this restaurant. I've mostly come

here for breakfast, but I've had a few lunches and dinners too. I think its time for another visit.

What I like best is the creativity in the menu. Items such as the El Porto scramble. Made with three eggs, sun-dried tomatoes, green
onions, asparagus artichokes hearts, Gruyère cheese, and chipotle sauce. Really good and unusual. The Spice It Up scramble is
also a favorite of mine. They make this great chorizo blend and scramble it into 3 eggs, and top it with tomatillo salsa. Yum! For
lunch, I've had the salmon salad, as well as the Caprese. Both great! The Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna for dinner is well executed.

Street parking, or there is a parking structure about 2 blocks north. Be prepared to wait on weekends.
