The kettle has been in downtown Manhattan Beach for many years. It is a favorite of many many people. It does not validate parking but you can sit outside or in depending on the weather. There is also a Starbucks near by.

Friendly service. Close to the beach. Clean toilets. The white tuna sandwich is delicious with lots of fresh avocado. Would certainly recommend this place for dinner or lunch. Outside terrace.
