Whether you’re looking for a light meal before a full day or a decadent French toast, there’s a brunch place in Long Beach with a menu for you. A museum-adjacent café with an ocean view, a Southern-inspired diner, and a cider bar with bottomless “cidermosas” make our list of best places to score breakfast or brunch in Long Beach.

The Breakfast Bar

Restaurant, American, $$$

The Breakfast Bar is where you can get a home-cooked breakfast or lunch, but without the chore of making it yourself. Owners Josh and Pamela Beadel opened their restaurant in 2002, and they pride themselves on using family recipes handed down from loved ones. Order hearty dishes such as “Uncle Marcee’s Omelet Casserole” or meatloaf and eggs, or go lighter with Greek yogurt, honey, fruit and house-made granola. The restaurant also has a bar, where you can score Bloody Marys, mimosas, bellinis, and other brunch cocktails.

Great Society

Restaurant, American, $$$

Great Society specializes in cider and mead, with about 20 taps split between the two sweet brews. On the weekends, they do a brunch where you can get bottomless “cidermosas.” Pancetta benedicts, omelets, pancakes, and more fill a small, but tasty menu. There are vegetarian options too, including a quinoa lentil burger and a portobello benedict.

The Attic is a cute, cozy restaurant set in a converted bungalow. They serve decadent Southern-inspired fare, including jambalaya and chicken and waffles.

They’re known for their Mac ‘n Cheetos, where each gooey dish is sprinkled with crumbles of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and green onions.
