Love this place. I always make sure to go here for breakfast when in the area. Breakfast is great, portions are big. Staff is friendly. Visited first time in 2009 and love coming back.

This restaurant was right next door to our hotel. We ate breakfast there 4 of our 5 day stay. We had a variety of breakfasts, and they were all great. Lots of good food prepared quickly, and attentive service. Another great place to eat at when in Manhattan Beach. Wish we would have eaten there that 5th day as well!

Manhattan Beach has developed into a vacation and visitor's destination. One of the best times to visit this beach community is in the early morning when there is parking available and the beach is deserted. What better way to start such a visit than to have breakfast at a wonderful neighborhood breakfast location? Yes, The Local Yolk fits this bill... More

I was a local who frequently went to the yolk when I lived in MB. It had a hometown feel with familiar wait staff and chefs. Sadly they seem almost all gone and the new staff is less than warm. I miss Mary and Al and Hal and Don. The biscuit was just as good as the last time as... More

I've been coming here many years. The omelets are pretty good and the biscuits are great (large and fresh from the oven). Breakfast burritos are huge and excellent. Their dark roast coffee is the best restaurant coffee I've had in a long time. Nothing on the menu will shock you with originality, but it's a good place to go. Lunches... More

There is a reason the Local Yolk has been a staple in this little MB neighborhood for over 30 years! One of the best values for breakfast around. Go hungry because the plates and portions are very generous. We often split an omelet plate when we don't want to eat too much. Each breakfast comes with a choice of bread... More

You can't beat the Local Yolk in El Porto. We've been loyal patrons of LY for decades. Our go to for breakfast, but love the Marathon sandwich. Excellent made in-house chorizo. The vibe is laid back. Decor could use a refresher.

My husband and I had massages scheduled at the Sand Spa, located right next door. The Local Yolk was a perfect spot to grab a quick bite beforehand. The biscuits are a MUST try. They are warm and fluffy and completely delightful with butter and honey. We also enjoyed the oatmeal and fresh fruit bowl. The environment was friendly.

Great place for breakfast when I was a kid, and still a great place. Go hungry, because the portions are very big.
