selects a few of our favorite breakfast spots that we believe you will enjoy here in Long Beach.
1. The Attic on Broadway
Belmont Heights is home to many quaint mom and pop shops. One of which is The Attic on Broadway. On the corner of Broadway and Newport Ave., a craftsman house has been turned into a dining hub for the Long Beach community. They are known for their Mac & Hot Cheetos dish, but their breakfast is equally appealing. From their cinnamon french toast with homemade chantilly cream ($11) to their Berkeley scramble with soy chorizo, spinach, parmesan cheese, tomatoes, and mushrooms topped with green onions ($11). The shrimp and grits with grilled garlic and herb crusted shrimp served over tasso ham grits, drizzled with honey, and topped with rosemary and herbs is also a favorite.
2. The Potholder
With three locations in Long Beach, the Potholder is easily a Long Beach Breakfast favorite. They serve breakfast all day with a list of more than twenty omelettes and scrambles to choose from like the El Matador with ortega chili, jack cheese, avocado, salsa and sour cream ($10.95). On their undecided menu you can get Mia’s stuffed french toast with cream cheese or peanut butter ($11.95).
3. Jongewaard’s Bake N Broil
Since 1965 Bake N Broil has been a Long Beach classic breakfast spot. Their old fashioned pancakes range in flavors from Lemon blueberry pancakes with raspberry sauce ($8.95), or banana nut pancakes with with walnuts and homemade whip cream ($9.95). Their tomato, basil, onion and jack cheese omelette is definitely a must try and it comes with your choice of a muffin or toast, and seasoned or unseasoned hashbrowns ($9.95).
