The Bake N Broil is a Long Beach institution. They’ve been open in Bixby Knolls since 1965, serving diner food and incredible pies and cakes. Although there will probably be a wait when you arrive, if you’re cool with sitting at the counter (which you should be), just grab a seat when it opens up. The menu is huge, but you should really go straight for the chicken pot pie. It’s also worth noting that it comes with your choice of soup starter, and that choice should be the French onion, because you’re already getting a chicken pot pie for lunch - now isn’t the time to start holding back. Save room for dessert though - everything from the red velvet cake to the 10+ types of pie are worth trying.
