This is a really nice little restaurant with a nice variety of items on the menu. Everything was well cooked and delicious, not the huge greasy portions many restaurants serve for breakfast. We were told by a number of locals that this is the best breakfast on the whole island, and I believe they are correct.

This was our first trip to the Long Beach area so we weren't familiar with the restaurants. 42nd Street Cafe is cute on the outside and the inside is comfortable, charming and nicely set up. The owner greeted us immediately. We decided to try the beignets - they are warm and wonderful, but HUGE! They serve 2 and we couldn't finish them. The food was good and the New Orleans jazz in the background was perfect. This place is a definite keeper!

Excellent choice for supper one night. Had the Long Beach trifecta...crab, Manila clams and razor clams. Excellent service!

We've been living in Texas since 2009 so have only been to the Peninsula once in that time :-( and have missed 42nd Street, one of our favorites.

It's just as good as ever! Great ambience, personnel, and food. We both had the clam chowder (Cherie's clam chowder is, no question, the best we've had anywhere--just perfect). My wife had the pasta carbonara and loved it. A twist was capers (usual in piccata), which she liked. I had an old favorite, the 9 hour pot roast: oh so tender and delicious, with mashed potatoes (homemade, of course).

Their homemade bread and preserves are fantastic. We also had glasses of wine (an Oregon Pinot Noir and a Rose) and after dinner drinks to go with the homemade ice cream (reese's peanut butter cup): Red Breast Irish whiskey and a nice port.

Just a great meal!

We'll be back for breakfast tomorrow, but can't review twice in a row. I suspect we'll have the beignets (always spectacular) and who knows what else?
