I'm currently staying in Manhattan Beach till Sunday. Are there any good restaurants near by that I should check out? I will most likely be dining by myself so will either be doing take out or if eating in, would prefer an atmosphere comfortable for single diners w/ book/laptop. I also have a car so wouldn't mind driving a little bit. I would love to try CA cuisine, known for fresh healthy foods, however, I do love southern food or good fried chicken too so may splurge if there is something worth it. Any cute cafes or great breakfast place I should check out this weekend? Overall though, I love food from all variety of countries so there really isn't a must not list...just a must try.
