Long Beach is mostly known as a summer destination, but winter in the City by the Sea is just as good! Although a few restaurants and food trucks are closed for the season, there are still plenty of places where you can indulge in warm and hearty food on a winter day.
One of our favorite places for holiday drinks is Starbucks. Nothing is more wintery than a Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte or Chestnut Praline Latte. Luckily, a Starbucks is located right at the Allegria Hotel!
If you’d rather skip a coffee drink, go to Fresco Creperie & Cafe, on Park Avenue. This cash-only café serves creamy and flavorful hot chocolate, as well as the best sweet and savory crepes in all of Long Beach. A perfect treat for a snowy day.
In addition to coffee and hot chocolate, cocktails are a favorite option on a cold day. At L’Onda Lounge you’ll find signature cocktails made with fresh and seasonal ingredients. Add an artisan cheese plate or fish taco and you’ve got yourself a winning combo!
No matter the season, seafood remains a Long Beach staple year round. The Atlantica Restaurant is the only place in the city that offers gourmet and locally sourced cuisine with a side of ocean views.

Many of us get over gray winter days with rich and cheesy food. Grotta Di Fuoco is an Italian restaurant in West End that prepares interesting pizza combinations in a wood burning oven. The pasta, appetizers and main dishes are exquisitely Italian.
What if you’re not craving fancy seafood or creamy pastas? Then, Lido Kosher Deli is for you! This Kosher restaurant is a local gem. The menu covers everything from vegetarian dishes, soups, omelettes, roast meats, burgers, wraps, bagels, sandwiches… The list goes on.
As you can see, Long Beach is a foodie’s paradise even in winter. Make this season extra special and join us for the Allegria Hotel Christmas Dinner and New Year’s Eve Dinner!
