Manhattan Beach, CA is an idyllic beach town just south of Los Angeles. With a gorgeous beach, a quaint downtown, wonderful restaurants and beautiful people everywhere, Manhattan Beach is a perfect living example of the Southern California lifestyle that the rest of the world envies. Just walking down the streets one almost expects to see the Beach Boys cruising by in a little deuce coupe. More than just a tourist destination, Manhattan Beach also boasts some of the best schools in the LA area, which is just one of the many reasons why this is one of the most desirable neighborhoods for home buying in LA.

Fortunately Dennis Komick, a respected real estate agent and native of Manhattan Beach, provided us with some of his favorite places to see if you stop by Manhattan Beach.

  • Ercoles

    ERCOLES....opened in 1927 this , the oldest bar in Manhattan beach, is a throwback to a more simple time. Their Taco Tuesday is so good, they do it again on Thursdays! And every Wednesday is 2 for 1 burgers... you have to come try it, you won't be disappointed.Pitchers of beer are always flowing and the staff and patrons are very nice people. Ercoles is located on Manhattan ave. near the pier. and remember, it is Cash Only !!

  • Beckers Bakery

    Beckers Bakery... Just across the street from Ercoles is, in my opinion, the best cookie stop Ever!! as a child I remember planting my face on the window of Beckers staring at the cakes and cookies inside. Today, they still make the best sugar cookies I've ever had, although its tough to get them when they sell out every day. They also make amazing custom cakes and some tasty to go sandwiches for the beach. Remember, they are closed on Mondays!!

  • Watermans Safehouse for Surfers

    Watermans... Safehouse for Surfers, in Hermosa Beach at the pier is a must for the best Ahi Poke in the South Bay. Based on his surf travels around the globe, Owner and friend Jeff Bellandi has sought out the best fish for his restaurants Ahi Poke Tuna. I can safely say that he has more than accomplished that goal. If you love Ahi, don't miss out on this gem. They also have a large selection of quality cocktails and beers to choose from. Watermans is a surf inspired bar/restaurant with tons of character and surf stoke everywhere to keep your eyes busy while you are there. TV's are constantly playing the latest surf films and if your lucky you might catch a live surfing event broadcast from across the globe.

  • Manhattan House

    This restaurant has been a welcome surprise. The food here is well prepared and they have teamed up with a local grade school (Pacific School) to grow their produce for the restaurant. Some of my favorite dishes are the grilled lamb meatballs and the buratta toast. located just west of Sepulveda on Manhattan Beach Blvd, they have plenty of parking and a very clean atmosphere including a fireplace.
