This is my favorite 24 hour restaurant in Manhattan Beach. It's nothing super spectacular but, it's MUCH better than hiking it to the Denny's in Hermosa and they have a much better selection. I can only comment on the breakfast which I came to discover after I was frustrated with waiting too long at Uncle Bill's.
We walked right in to The Kettle and sat at the counter, no wait! The server came up right away and filled up my coffee cup and I was pretty happy at that moment, glad to be there instead of still waiting and hungry outside of Bill's. They also have mini muffins and coffee to keep you happy if you have to wait and that gets a lot of praise in my book. The service was quick and nice, the food is just like you'd find at any other diner/24 hour coffeeshop and the location is easily accessible. I say, go here to cure your hangover or to keep from getting a hangover after a long night out at the bars.
