Has it ever happened to you that you always end up at the same brunch places that you are familiar to? It’s happened to me so many times and as much as I try to get out of that routine it always fails. I always say, “I will venture out and explore new places” and I don’t.


But, this time around I didn’t fail and my fiancée and I tried The Attic on Broadway in Long Beach, Calif. We had heard nothing but great stuff about this place from friends so we already had big expectations for it and they were exceeded. I think you should also give it a try if you have not visited. You will thank me once you make your way there.

The Attic on Broadway is a restaurant that sits inside a 1920s-era craftsman cottage owned by Steve Massis and it is one of the few places in Long Beach where you can get southern-inspired cuisine paired with crisp Abita beer. Since it serves the Louisiana brew it adds a touch of down-home authenticity, which also serves Bananas Foster, a hard-to-find New Orleans favorite.


Their drinks perfectly pair with their food. Both are creative interpretations of Southern Classics with a little coastal California vibe. The Bloody Mary menu was voted one of the best ones in LA last year by Thrillist and is insanely popular. We had to order one and it was delicious!


The service was amazing and we felt so much hospitality at this popular place amongst locals. As mentioned it was originally a craftsman house turned into restaurant and we felt as if we were at a friend’s home. It really does not feel like a restaurant and rather like someone’s backyard.


The place offers comfort food and craft cocktails. To top it off the patio area has small blankets for customers to use in case the ocean’s breeze is too cold or you’ve just got the chills.


In addition, The Attic on Broadway prides themselves in the Best Mac N’ Cheese in town. As a matter of fact the eatery’s signature Mac N’ Cheetos is a monstrous concoction of a home-made four cheese sauce, pasta and crushed Flaming Hot Cheetos topper and it’s gained local popularity. It’s become the restaurants flagship. We did not have it because it’s often eaten during lunch or dinner, but I had to show you all a picture below:

In order to really rave about their food we tried a variety of dishes during our brunch. I loved the presentation of their food, but I must say that their French toast was nom nom! We also ordered two separate omelettes: The Southern and the Blue Bayou. I cannot decide which one was better because they both were to die for. The potatoes are another signature delicacy for them. So crisp and flavorful, just how I love them!

We learned that breakfast is served until 4 p.m. every day so just in case you are running late or the night before was a rough one on the drinks you can still get your early morning food fix throughout the day.

The Attic has won “Best Brunch” by the local Long Beach Post and their recognition is well deserved.


The vibe is mellow and beach-like though without having an oceanfront view although it is less than 5 blocks away.

So next time you have friends in town don’t take them to the same places you’ve gone and switch things up a bit so that you can show them The Attic on Broadway. Or if on this Memorial Day weekend you are looking for a new place to visit go to The Attic on Broadway.

Let me know if you give a try and how you enjoyed the experience?
