There are 2 reasons why I included The Attic on this list, the first is their homemade hash browns, which is without a doubt one of the best breakfasts I had in Long Beach, and the second reason is the breakfast burrito with roasted polenta, grilled cheese and scrambled eggs…delicious.
The only reason I placed the attic in the 11th place on the best spot for breakfast in Long Beach list, is because of the desserts.
This breakfast restaurant in Long Beach has only one dessert, the $10 traditional beignets covered with powdered sugar, which I found kinda boring.
