One drink turned into two drinks turned into you crawling down 4th Street last night, and now you’re paying the price. Get yourself to The Attic. This converted bungalow house is easily the most popular brunch spot in Long Beach, and everybody’s here for three things: a great side patio, massive bloody marys, and Long Beach’s unofficial/maybe official food icon, the Mac N’ Cheetos - a giant bowl of mac and cheese, covered in hot cheetos, topped with everything from short rib to candy bacon, depending on what version you order. This seems like one of those things that was created solely for Instagram, and maybe it was. But it actually tastes pretty fantastic. Arrive before the rush, or plan to wait it out on the sidewalk.
