Manhattan Beach Breakfast Restaurants

Uncle Bill’s Pancake House

A Manhattan Beach staple for over 50 years. Breakfast and lunch served all day.

Our building was constructed in 1908 as a home, and was used as a flower shop, real estate office, and for other purposes before Uncle Bill McElroy opened Uncle Bill’s in 1961. Or rather, half of it was Uncle Bill’s – the south end was a barbershop until 1999. Paul Allen VanAmburgh bought the restaurant in 1973, remodeled the place a bit, and added a few tables. In 2000 the restaurant expanded again into the space vacated by the barbershop, and we opened the outdoor patio. The restaurant remains in the Van Amburgh family, who are happy to welcome you for breakfast and lunch every day.

The Source Café

Renowned for his fine-dining experience and seafood mastery at Water Grill, LeFevre returns to his culinary roots with a more rustic menu, built to be shared and served in a gracious and welcoming environment.

Eat at Joe’s

Joe Filkosky bought the restaurant in 1969 from Fred and Wanda. It had changed ownership four times before Joe grabbed the reins. He worked all day, every day to keep the little burger stand alive. The small counter with all seven stools (and a few milk cans) flourished into the Joe’s we know and love today.

There are more seats now, but that comfortable touch of home lives on at Joe’s. The choices at Joe’s have expanded from burgers and fries to a full breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare… featuring the famous John Wayne Special. Yes, the duke actually came in one morning and asked Joe to cook up a breakfast that soon became a favorite. Another favorite created by Frank, the highway patrol man ordered a cheese omelette with yesterday’s special on top. You’ll find Frank’s “Mad Dog Special” along with many others, posted on the boards around the restaurant. Joe’s loyal employees take special pride in quality preparation and speedy, friendly service. Today, Joe’s is owned by Alex and Michele Jordan, who are thrilled to continue the legacy that has made Joe’s a Redondo Beach landmark for over a half-century.

San Pedro Breakfast Restaurants

Happy Diner

The Happy Diner isn’t your average diner. Unlike Burger King, when they say, “have it your way,” they really mean it. And if enough people like a particular dish, “your way,” then that dish will be named after you. That’s why there’s a chicken and vegetable soup named for Congresswoman Janice Hahn when she’s home from Washington D.C. That is also why there’s Port Police Burger which is a double paddy, fresh jalapeño burger with a habeñero pepper sauce infused mayonnaise.

The cuisine runs the gamut of Italian and Mexican cuisine to American continental. The Happy Diner chefs are always creating something new, but rarely do they advertise the fact that they have it. They believe that if an item is good, its reputation will get around by word of mouth. You can even find items normally found at curbside lonchera trucks.
