The Original Park Pantry

Cute, old-school diner
Diner food is pretty hard to get wrong, but Park Pantry, a great Long Beach gay tradition, does one menu item exceptionally well, pancakes!

      A favorite breakfast cafe
      I like the food here. Park Pantry has the best pancakes and the quality of the food is very consistent but menu is not pompous. Think of this like a Denny’s with a little more class. View to the park makes it comfortable for a early morning brunch with family and friends. It is gay-friendly (only).

      Over Rated but Gay Friendly
      The restraint itself is nothing special, sort of like a down graded French Market. The food is average, and so are the people. If not for the gay crowd mixed in with the blue hairs, I would probably skip this place all together. This is not however a gay establishment. They are gay friendly. The waitresses put on a "girlfriend" attitude for bigger tips if you look gay but is just a bit phony. I wish they would come out already.
