Great place if you like to eat with the lights off. They should turn it back into a liquor store like when I was a little kid. All the unlocals think it is really cool. Good luck!

This place has a great location, delicious, fresh food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, friendly locals and terrific wait staff. Just try to say no to this delicious vegetable cheese melt!

Have driven past this place a bunch of times since it opened, and finally dropped in today. Had a Fonoi burger and was very impressed! Came with an excellent side salad. Not cheap, but a quality burger like this should not be.

Need to have an informal business meeting in town, then stop by the cafe during slow times. Great selection of coffee or beer. Tasty appetizers and burgers. Everyone there is super friendly and make sure you're taken care of.

Unfriendly staff. Kicked us off our table because we only ordered coffee. How about a sign guys? Like 'meals only'. And the restaurant was empty anyway- not surprising considering the service.

NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY. I came here today with my husband and baby who was sleeping in a compact stroller. We came after lunch and the place was almost empty. We were going to sit at a table but the waitress said they walk by there and suggested we go outside with the stroller. It was unusually cold outside so we... More

We stayed in palo verde for the weekend and joined friends from the area here for breakfast. I am so glad we did. The place is small in appearance. But, it has capacity for all different occasions. We stayed at the patio for coffee, breakfast then sandwiches. They are all very good. Local kids walk back from the surf all... More

The Marine Street Cafe is definitely off the beaten path for Manhattan Beach which is why it is often nearly empty. There are 3 dining levels. The street level which is literally on the street and has a fireplace, the inside downstairs which has a few tables and a view of the kitchen and the upper level which has 5... More

Ok, I admit I live a few blocks away, but man o' man, this place is great. They are always nice, and friendly, and fortunately for many ... it's usually not too crowded, so easy to get to. It's a few blocks from Downtown MB, but that's a bonus as it's an ez walk for many locals, but also a... More

Ate lunch today at marine street cafe for the first time. I've driven by this corner cafe many times and always seen it packed so I finally decided to try it out. The menu has lots of yummy choices. I had a huge meatball sub and my husband tried a "fire" burger. The portions are huge and the food was... More
