best breakfast place ever!
i went to uncle bills the first time this past may and it was amazing. the food is more than delicious. the pancakes are light and fluffy and omlettes are exceptional. once you actually sit down the service is quick and its worth the 20-30 minute wait outside. great views of the pacific ocean and a welcome warm environment and friendly staff. uncle bills is my favorite! :)

Pros: pancakes, omlettes, muffins, hasbrowns, and everything else
Cons: long wait, usually have to get there early in the morning to

Used to be one of my favorites
I grew up eating at Uncle Bill's and used to look forward to going there when visiting my family in Manhattan Beach but I'm done with that place now after two bad experiences from the same waitress (?). The first time I left a tip (20%) on the table and took my bill to the register to pay; because it was very busy I handed the bill with cash to the person at the register and did not wait for the small amount of change. As I was getting in my car directly in front of the restaurant, our waitress came running out and asked, in a loud and rude manner, if there was something wrong with the service. At first perplexed it then occurred to me that she thought the change from the bill was her tip and had not looked to see I had left the tip on the table. I told her the tip was on the table and she turned and walked back in without another word. Today I went back to Uncle Bill's thinking the instance was an isolated instance but had the misfortune to get the same server. This time I gave my ticket for $14.28 with a $20 bill to the server and waited for my change at the table but when it became clear there was no change coming back I asked her directly for my change at which time she looked at me incredulously and said she must have been mistaken that such a "large amount" was a tip; the sarcasm was thick. She gave me the $5.72 change and I left her $3 ( although I'm not sure why ). It seems that the stress of living at the beach is causing some very bad behavior at Uncle Bill's so I guess I'll have to venture on down to Hermosa or go to the Kettle from now on.

Pros: Atmosphere,food
Cons: Waitress

one of my favorite places to have breakfast
i've been in LA for about 2 years and uncle bill's is one of my favorite places to have breakfast. the place is small so at times there's a wait...but it's LA and the a bit of a wait is expected. if you come during the week, you should be ok. I always get the Manhattan Beach omelette. I love it..the veggies are great and the avacoda slices are a perfect topping. also the pancakes that come with the omelettes are big and fluffy. you could use them as pillows. i always get the same thing but, people i've gone with have really enjoyed there other dishes. For me, this place is well worth the drive down from glendale . after I eat, I go for a walk on the beach and look at all the beautiful houses I can never afford. enjoy.

What's With This Place??
There was no wait this morning at 10 a.m., but now maybe I wish there were and I would have gone elsewhere to have breakfast. The employees are nice, especially a short, friendly, older latina who waited on my table. I ordered a crispy waffle with eggs and sausages. The waffle was anything but crispy, it was pale in color and the batter did not even rise to form the holes that hold the butter and syrup - it looked like a corn tortilla. Tasted about the same, too. Anyway, I told the waitress who ordered up another. In the meantime my eggs and sausage were getting cold. The eggs and sausages, by the way, were the tiniest representatives of their species I have ever seen. Looked like doll food, they were so small. Finally the second waffle arrives looking exactly like the first. Even the waitress, as she was placing it on my table, noticed there was no improvement over the first so offered to have it ?crisped up? for me. After few minutes in the waffle iron, the exterior was browned and it was crispy, but that did not improve the taste. I do better with bisquick, water & canola oil! Maybe I should have had an omelet or something else, but a waffle sounded good at the time. If the rest of the food is like this, I don't know why this place is so popular. Maybe they're coming down in quality, which would explain all the empty tables this morning.

Pros: Breakfast was $11+
Cons: The Food
