Humblebrags Eatery serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as cocktails. Some of our favorites on the menu are the heirloom tomato and burrata salad, chicken pesto pasta and the humbleburger (it’s amazing – it’s got lettuce, tomato, grilled onion, cheddar and spicy aioli).

The Heritage Family Pantry, known all over Lakewood and Long Beach for baking their own bread – and it really is delicious – is a great place to stop and grab a home-cooked meal while you’re out and about. Some of the best menu items are the mushroom swiss burger, the chicken fettucine alfredo and the grilled red snapper. This cozy restaurant has really friendly waitstaff, too, which makes it the perfect place for a fast lunch or dinner.

George’s Greek Café is a cozy little place that serves lunch and dinner, as well as wines, craft beer and craft cocktails. (They also offer Sunday brunch.) Some of our favorites on the menu include the combo appetizer plate, packed with dolmathes, spanakopites, kalamari and gyro feta falafel. The lamb chops and shrimp souvlaki are delectable, as is the flat iron steak and the pastitso. Grab some baklava when you’re done, too – it’s a can’t-miss.

 

#4: Vino e Cucina

 

Vino e Cucina
4501 East Carson Street
562-421-0124

This cozy, authentic Italian dining room offers amazing regional dishes in a great environment. The service is fast and friendly, and the food is some of the best Italian we’ve ever found in the area. Start with the bruschetta campagnola or the Scampi Portofino, then check out the Penne al Forno, Rigatoni al Profumo di Bosco, or Gnocchi Almafi, or try the Linguine allo Scoglio or Fettucine al Salmone. You’ll be glad you did!

 

#5: Mamma’s Sushi

 

Mamma’s Sushi
5679 Woodruff Avenue
562-866-3616

Open seven days a week, Mamma’s Sushi is the place to be for lunch or dinner (check it out during Happy Hour, too – you’ll have a great time). You can order combos – we suggest the teriyaki beef and sashimi or the chicken and tempura – or a plate of chirashi. You can watch the chefs put together your order, too. This quiet, unassuming little place is one of the most popular in the area, and the food is always fresh and served quickly.
