Throwback Thursday: The Local Yolk in Manhattan Beach CA
I first enjoyed the Local Yolk in Manhattan Beach waaay back in 1999 and it's been one of our favorite breakfast places since. There are a number of other popular breakfast eateries in the same area, but this is my fav.
My daughter had started at USC in 1998 and found out about the place from her friends, so on visits from Boston to CA to see her this was the eatery of choice for breakfast. Manhattan Beach is such a charming beach town to explore...but it gets crowded...and we have spent a bit of time there with our daughter, and then with her husband, and now with the grandkids.
We were there this past weekend for breakfast and I realized that so little has changed over the years. There is a huge menu - they are known for their omelettes - the service is prompt, friendly, and efficient. And you are 3 blocks (up hill) from the ocean, with peaks from inside depending on where you are seated.
It has a diner look and feel, including the plastic water glasses, and it seems like many of the staff have been there for years. My daughter and her family have been there so often over the years that they are readily recognized. I also have a Local Yolk t-shirt I bought years ago that I still wear to the gym on occasion.
