The Corner Store









Whether you’re looking for that morning jump-start of caffeine before you head out for work, a mid-day nosh, or a peaceful place
to recuperate after a long day of toil; The Corner Store is just the “right kind” of place. Opened a few years ago by a couple of
ladies from “down under”, but since June ’06; owned and managed by Peggy & Bruce Lindquist.

The Corner Store hearkens back to a time when “the local store” was a central gathering place for neighbors to eat, gossip, swap
stories, or shoot the breeze – The Corner Store is just such a place. Primarily a coffee house, but with groceries, specialty soda pop,
jewelry, incredible baked goods (there goes my low-carb diet!), art and just recently hot dogs, soup and sandwiches, there is always
something for everyone here!

I go here mainly for the coffee drinks: Lattes, Cappuccinos – but unlike the “rat race” coffee houses that are so popular; here I feel at
peace, at ease – as if I was on vacation. To me, The Corner Store is an escape from our terse and frantic paced life to a simpler time
where people enjoyed life more. Peggy has an extensive background in the food service industry, but she says she is happiest now,
here. I think this place is an extension of her good natured personality.

Located at 1118 West 37th Street near Point Fermin Park. The sea air will caress you, and The Corner Store will woo you –
you’ll become a regular – I am! One of my favorite spots to just chill.

Oh, BTW The Corner Store has the best Hummus on the planet! - I make it!

"A place where old friends meet" is on their window and on their menu. One of the primo local places in San Pedro. Every morn you
can see business people, fishermen, dock workers, truck drivers as well as families here. All have come to know that the Omelette and
Waffle Shop is a friendly place where they can have a great meal and meet some old (and new?) friends.

You want a HUGE selection of omelets? The Omelette and Waffle Shop has 95! Really! Besides that, they have 12+ scrambled egg
dishes and if that weren't enough, you can customize your own omelet with 30 different ingredients! The "Amigas Scrambler" is my
favorite, but I add turkey sausage. It is a compilation of ortega chili, fresh tomato, green onion, jalapenos, 2 eggs scrambled with 2
tortillas, covered with jack cheese and sour cream on the side. The "Quickie" Special is Mom's favorite (like a pancake sandwich).
They have 13 different waffles (Cinnamon-Apple for me). If you're looking for something really different, try the jalapeno & cheddar
waffle. For lunch they have a good selection of sandwiches and burgers, but for something better - try one of their plate lunches.
Rib eye steak, beef stroganoff, meatloaf, and chicken curry to name a few.

Mona & Leslie and their crew are fast, efficient and friendly. Always check out the specials board - lots of good eats!
Parking is a bit rough, with only a small lot. Otherwise it's street parking.
1103 S. Gaffey Street (310)831-3277

Pacific Diner









I have been a fan of the quality and the quantity of the food offered here for over 10 years. Probably the best biscuits and gravy in
San Pedro. I love their breakfasts, especially the Acapulco & the Chile Verde* omelets. For lunch, I think they have the best Chicken
Caesar Salad in town. If you go for breakfast my friend loves their eggs benedict. They also do the "John Wayne Breakfast" popularized
by Joe's in Redondo Beach. The service is good, but it can get crazy on weekends - if you need something: speak up! They have their
own parking lot, which make it a cut above other establishments which rely solely upon street parking. While the biscuits & gravy are
good, they are not in the same league as Flo's Airport Café at the Chino airport. Their Chili Verde is red! When I queried my waitress
about the obvious fact that "Verde"means green in Spanish, I was told "That's how we make it here." ??? Still scratching my head.

A very good friend of mine, who has eaten here for 35 years says:
"Starting out as the Pilot Café some 40+ years ago, the Pacific
Diner in San Pedro has become the place to go for breakfast as late as 2 p.m. Bacon and eggs are standard fare but most folks come
for the omelets; a good place for breakfast at a fairly decent price. The drawback is that it does get crowded like any good eatery.
Overall, the "Diner" is hard to  beat for  location, price and quality of food. Give it a try!"  
I heartily agree! Good words Steve.

A great breakfast and lunch place. Their patio is a good spot for a large party.

San Pedro has a good number of restaurants, so when Gaffey Street Diner opened I wondered if they would be another
"cookie-cutter" kind of a place. THEY ARE NOT! Their menu states: "Best Home Cooking in the Harbor" They could be right.

To be honest, their menu doesn't have a lot of items that you would find in other places, but where Gaffey Street Diner differentiates
themselves from those other places is by the Quality of the food, the Quantity of the food, and the personable, friendly service.

Breakfast is great! John Wayne breakfast special, huge breakfast burritos, breaded chicken breast cutlet with creamy gravy & eggs
(my favorite), a good selection of omelets, as well as the option to build your own omelet. For lunch, they have a great selection of huge
sandwiches and equally huge salads. The hot turkey sandwich is excellent! You can also get the same breaded chicken breast cutlet
as a lunch item or try their other lunch plates - yum! Gaffey Street Diner has set a high standard for other San Pedro restaurants to try
to match. Located at 247 North Gaffey Street (Just off the south end of the 110 freeway).
They are open daily at 5AM and close Mon - Fri at 2:30PM and Sat & Sun at 3PM.

Are they really the "Best Home Cooking in the Harbor"? I'm still a bit undecided, but Gaffey Street Diner is among my
top three places to go in San Pedro. You go - decide for yourself.
