I’ve said many times that Long Beach has some of the best food spots around. The Potholder Too is one of the many reasons why I make this statement. It’s just one location of this restaurant chain that offers delicious breakfast and brunch style meals. There are two other Potholder locations. The original Potholder also in downtown Long Beach and just recently P3 opened in Lakewood.
The location I frequent the most is The Potholder Too in downtown Long Beach right off the 710 south. I was introduced to this place by a friend two years ago and I’ve been hooked. It doesn’t stay open all day so you have to get up and get there because it closes at 3 midweek and 4 on the weekends. It is truly a breakfast diner.
You can enjoy a meal inside which is decked out in random decor or outside on the patio enjoying the nice ocean breeze.
And if your a traveler, grab one of their Potholder stickers and take a photo with it. You might just end up on their wall of fame.
Okay so what type of food is offered your probably wondering? Let’s look at a few of my favorite dishes. Oh and I just want to say that one of the main reasons why I love this place sooooo much is because it’s a blend of Mexican dishes that you’d normally eat for lunch or dinner and the majority of the meals come with fresh avocado 😋
And this is a Nacker Snacker with hash browns
Fruity Pancakes- stuffed with blueberry
Breakfast Enchiladas- eggs & cheese in corn tortillas, sour cream, avocado, & enchilada sauce
I attended a free Yoga class not to far from this location. Afterwards the last thing I want is something greasy and heavy, so I’ll stop by the Potholder Too and order the Tree Hugger sandwich. For all the real vegans out there this food item is right up your alley (or it might be depending of your level of veganism).
Tree Hugger-spinach, tomato, cucumber, sprouts, onions and avocado on Squaw bread. You can lick the type of bread and I highly rexommens using the Squaw bread.
They also serve mimosas so you can definitely have yourself a nice brunch outting here.
Seriously if you haven’t experienced it yet, go visit!! Yes I’m yelling at you lol. You’ll see why is one of my favorite places in the downtown long beach area to grab breakfast.
