When it comes to true Manhattan Beach classics, it doesn’t get more real than Uncle Bill’s. The 55-year-old spot has been an MB breakfast staple for years, and has the weekend lines to prove it. If you can get in, you’ll be rewarded with what’s easily the best pancake and waffle situation in town. And now, with the newly expanded side patio, you’ll get insane ocean views as well. They close at 3pm, so get your hungover ass up and make it happen.
