Had a nice sandwich (Vespa) Caramelized onions were too sweet but portion sizes are very large. Just lunch really, not too much to say.

Yep folks, so it is amazing food no doubt but a few issues... The place is so tiny it is hard if not suuuper hard to get a table inside or out. We sat inside, and the clanging of dishes was so loud that I...More

The North End Cafe is not a hotel. However, if you are referring to the hotel in Hermosa Beach I reviewed, the answer is no pool. If you don't mind chilly water, the ocean is very close. Enjoy!!!!
