I found this little gem the other day, North End Cafe in Manhattan Beach, California. Yelp is a application for the Iphone, that allows you to rate, review, comment on a certain locations, and businesses. I stumbled upon a page for North End Cafe, and it was highly recommended by customers, great reviews and currently holds 4 and 1/2 stars. It sounded too good to be true, so I went out to find this little place right by the beach, and fell in love immediately. It’s large windows, modern design, made for a great bistro. This place is known for their panini’s, and rightly so. After scanning the menu that hangs in the window(pictured above) I settled upon the Vespa panini, it was a Grecian style panini. As I sat at the tables, over looking the ocean, it reminded me of those little French or Italian cafes alongside the beach. I took one bite of the panini, it was scrumptious, hearty. It was as if it was an solid version of french onion soup. The Vespa panini consisted of caramelized onions, goat cheese, tomatoes and a savory delicious sauce. The North End cafe is a fantastic place to get a good meal, sit by the beach and to chat with friends. Be sure to stop by this place if you are ever in town.
