We've had a very good experience with Dr. Jones. She's smart, friendly, and caring. Recently, she was able to correctly diagnose a condition that had been incorrectly diagnosed by another physician only days before. She has a very busy practice which may affect how quickly you can get an appointment, but shows how popular she is.
Very good "gourmet" chinese food. Small restaurant with outdoor patio located outside Manhattan Village Mall. Next to California Pizza Kitchen.
Great, cheap Mexican food. Situated a block off the beach on Hermosa Ave in north Hermosa, it has a small indoor seating area (~10 tables) and a patio on the roof with plastic chairs and tables. Cheap tacos every Taco Tuesday.
Great place for children's swimming lessons. Offer lessons for many different ages and skill levels at Hegg Pool in Polliwog Park.
Pick up and deliver cleaning for us every week. Prices seem competitive. Tailor on site.
Very nice people, convenient location on Sepulveda across from the Manhattan Village Mall, reasonable prices. They've done some very good work on shoes for us. They cracked up when our 3-year-old brought in her "Dorothy from Oz" shoes to be fixed.
They have an amazing view of Manhattan Pier and the beach and a decent downstairs bar. It's an ok place to grab a drink after spending the day on the beach, but there are many better places in the area. I'd recommend walking across the street to Shellbacks or even Manhattan Beach Brewery if you're looking for food. I've had no luck with the restaurant upstairs and would avoid at all costs.
Good car wash and detailer on the corner of Sepulveda and Marine. From the photos on the wall, it looks like Tiger Woods is a frequent customer.
A great bakery a block from the beach Manhattan Beach. Known for their beautifully designed cakes and cookies. When my daughter was younger, I used to have to physically drag her away from the cookie display which was more fascinating to her than any Disney movie. It's hard to find a birthday party in Manhattan Beach that doesn't have a Beckers cake.
Also a good deli to grab a sandwich.
PROS: Great cakes, cookies and sandwiches
A great little butcher just two blocks from the pier in Manhattan Beach. Pricey, but excellent selection and quality of meats. Will always go there ahead of Bristol Farms or any of the chain "gourmet" grocers.
