I went in and ask for a table of 2, they made me sit down and wait even though over half the tables were empty. Then when I was seated I decided on the Breakfast Burrito which did not have any meat listed. I confirmed with the waiter that

I took my brother here when he came to visit. They have the best breakfast in Manhattan Beach!
Try the eggs pain perdu they will not be disappointing.
He loved it so much and we went back another 3 times during his 2 week stay!

Hmmm. Does Denny's restaurant rate this high. I could have sworn I just ate at Denny's. The food, the service, and what are the hours? Denny's is fine for it's purpose. But, it is maybe a 2 star restaurant. So, I give one star for

If you want some good food, no matter what time, go to the Kettle. Parking can be a little tricky, but their muffins are definitely worth it! The best ones are their carrot-raisin! Highly recommend, oh and portions are huge, so bring your appetite!

Pros: Good Crabcakes

Cons: Service not great!

This is a nice place to go for a relaxing breakfast any day of the week, the food is fresh, the staff is friendly, and the location is spectacular, right near the beach, great place to spend a lazy sunday morning reading the paper.

Pros: near the beach, fresh food, good service

Cons: none that I can think of

Though the food is not spectacular, it is the fairly easy-going vibe and breakfast-for-dinner-at-one in the morning that gets the crowds here. Waiters and waitresses are hit-or-miss in terms of personality and dependability, but usually

I have to admit, I have never been to the Kettle before midnight and that fact that they have bouncers at the door kind of says it all. It is great late night dining after hours of frolicking at the neighboring bars. Avoid the wait and

Parking is a bit of a pain, but if you're here late at night (which is the only reason anybody ought to be in a 24 hour joing, right?) it's not too bad.

I love going to the beach but typically I don't actually go IN the beach. If you want to get away of the fish-smelling Redondo Pier and the over crowded Hermosa Beach, Downtown Manhattan is THE place to be. And where else but the Kettle?

Great food.
First time i went i got the Chicken Ciabbata. It was brilliant.
Second time? Same thing.
Third? I was drunk, who knows.

Awesome ambience.
First time i came here a friend insisted we go (we'd just walked from the Hermosa Pier and were hungry as heck!)
We came to The Kettle and naturally ordered ASAP. After insisiting that we be fed likewise, the food got arrived promptly without neglect for quality.

I would reccomend coming for any ocassion. The menu is diverse, so most everybody can find something they like.

PROS: Location, Food, Service
CONS: Price is a BIT too steep

This place IS Manhattan Beach. Why go to Denny's when the Kettle is open 24/7 too? They've got everything there and it's all good. Ask the locals and hear them rave about it!

PROS: Always open
CONS: Parking is rough.

I've been going to the Kettle for years. They have fantastic soups and the waitresses are really accomodating. Sometimes in the mornings there is a wait because the breakfasts are quite tasty! If you can, try the homemade soups. They have a different one every day! Also, the sandwiches and desserts are really good. This is the place you go when you want to have a deep talk. It has a bit of a French feel and although it's a sort of diner, you feel like you're eating in a really homey environment.

This is the hang out late night near the beach when nothing else is open.
If you are with a friend and you want to continue your conversation but you can't think of any place to go....head to the beach. Manhattan Beach Blvd. and Highland is the 24 hour hang out and they won't kick you out.
The food is decent and so is the service.
The after party crowd can get rowdy at times but for the most part I recommend The Kettle as the after hours hang out restaurant.

PROS: open 24/7

It's open 24/7, food is rather good (at least consistent), and there's always an attractive crowd here........what more can you ask for. I'd definitely recommend any of the yummy greasy finger foods, as well as the baked onion soup! If

We go here way too much (basically once a week). It is easy to get in and sitting at the counter is great for people watching. The food is plentiful and cheap and you can get beer and wine. Very much the neighborhood place where you run in to someone you know.
