    Mason makes a mean latte

    The It's a Grind Coffee chain is a Long Beach institution that manages to thrive in the competitive coffee market. Starbucks recognized this small chains success and immediately opened shops across the street from each of the It's a Grind coffehouses. Locals actively boycott Starbucks by starting their day with coffee at one of the 6 family owned locations.

    The original is at the corner of Spring & Los Coyotes. Other locations are as follows:
    Signal Hill - next to Costco
    Traffic Circle - next to the car wash
    Bixby Knolls- Atlantic Ave

    Tip at LEAST 20%

    by theprimespotdotcom Written Apr 22, 2003

    If you can afford to travel and eat out, start at 20% and work your way Up or Down...

    By ALL MEANS ask your server for local resources and hot spots...

    In LONG BEACH, we are heavily populated by Hispanics, Cambodians, African Americans, and Pilipinos (or Filipinos, Tagalog dialect) as well as Japanese and other cultures.

    If you need translation into Japanese, Tagalog, Hispanic, Portugese, French, or even SIGN LANGUAGE, do not hesitate to call me and I'll give you an Intro to someone who can help you! KaRi 562-804-5625
