The Pacific Ocean often inspires one to refresh their body and reinvigorate their soul. While we can be susceptible to chips and burgers every once in a while, sometimes you need healthy food after a day at the beach to keep the good vibes going. Manhattan Beach offers a wide array of healthy options to tantalize taste buds whether you're grabbing a bite on the way to the pier or looking to unwind with a nice dinner.

Homie Manhattan Beach


Started by a couple of Manhattan Beach natives, Homie offers a diverse menu and relaxed ambiance that captures the unique essence of our community. Fresh ingredients are the key to their menu of classic California cuisine. Our favorite is the Homie Ahi Salad. Sliced ahi is seared to perfection over a bed of fresh mixed greens, white corn, carrots, cilantro and mint. A soy-ginger-sesame dressing brings the dish together with perfect balance. And if you're in the mood for something a bit more hearty, the breakfast burritos jam pack flavor and provide the energy you'll need to soak in sun.  Homie is more than food, however; the owners have lived in Manhattan Beach for generations and wanted to share the charm and spirit that make our community special. Homie offers art, apparel, home decor, cards, jewelry, and other gifts from local artists that will let you bring a piece of Manhattan Beach home with you. And the laid back atmosphere and friendly staff will make you want to visit again!


True to their name, Lemonade offers, you guessed it, different concoctions of everyone's favorite treat to beat the heat. It should go without saying that their fresh squeezed lemonades are not to be missed, but Lemonade is far from your basic beach snack shack. Salmon Poke, Mango Chicken Mac bowls and BBQ Brisket are all options on their innovative, unique menu. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options are all available, underscoring Lemonade's commitment to meet the needs of modern diners with high quality, affordable healthy meals. And if you do just need a thirst quenching lemonade, the cucumber mint lemonade is the perfect beach partner!


We've mentioned Rice before, but, let's face it, if we're talking about the best healthy restaurants in Manhattan Beach, we'd be remiss not to include this bastion for fresh, organic and natural Japanese cooking. That's because Rice focuses on more than a healthy menu; they create meals to nourish the mind, body, and soul. Rice never uses artificial ingredients and makes all their sauces from scratch, creating the foundation for an unforgettable, fresh experience. Try any of their delicious salmon sushi rolls, which they bring in fresh from the Faroe Islands. Just steps away from the pier in Downtown, Rice's casual but refined ambiance will provide a perfect oasis to recharge from a day in the sun.
