Where to Eat in Long Beach


It’s called Jongewaard’s Bake N Broil. You are going to want to remember that.   Thanks to Treacy Colbert for recommending this place and the lemon blueberry pancakes.

This was our first stop on a weekend trip getaway, during which we explored the coast from Laguna Beach to the outer rim of the Palos Verdes Pennisula. Ever have one of those mini-trips that fills your head with so many great images that you feel you’ve been away a week?  This was one of those.



After about a half an hour wait during which we talked to a pair of local Bake N Broil enthusiasts, Kitty and I split an order of hash browns with onions and peppers and an order of the lemon blueberry pancakes with raspberry sauce.  All so fresh and delicious!

This and two mugs of coffee filled us up and cost just a little over $15.00 total!


It’s a noisy, hustle-bustle kind of mom and pop diner, but once you have your seat you feel right at home.


We liked it so much that we made a point to stop back in for lunch on our way back up the coast. It’s inland about 37 blocks (corner of Atlantic and 37th, in fact), but like I said, worth it!


Also, it’s always a good idea to bring something home to the person who may have kept the home fires burning and the birds entertained while you’re gone.  This rhubarb pie from Bake N Broil was noticeably heavier than the pies I’m used to picking up.  It weighed in at 4 pounds 3 ounces…but quickly lost a lot of weight.  Lots of flavorful fruit in there….for $11.95!
