Benson's By The Beach is located in downtown Long Beach, Washington.

It’s always a treat to enjoy breakfast near the beach on the Long Beach Peninsula. Drive through town and you’ll notice a few options early in the morning — including Benson’s By The Beach, a brunch restaurant located in the heart of downtown.

Benson’s is a longtime favorite for locals and visitors, something you’ll surely notice if you decide to visit the restaurant. In the late morning, it’s not uncommon to see a line of people waiting to get inside. But as the saying goes, patience is a virtue — and the wait is worth it.

Benson’s offers traditional breakfast items like pancakes, French toast and biscuits and gravy. Each entree is filling. A serving of pancakes can easily serve two people. And arguably best of all, just about everything on the menu costs less than $10 — making for a delicious, affordable breakfast.

After you’ve gotten your breakfast fix, take a walk along Pacific Avenue, the town’s main street, then head over to the beach, which is just a few minutes away. While heading out, make sure to take a look at the small park next to Benson’s, plus some of the town’s wackier sites across the street, like the world’s largest frying pan and chopsticks, and a giant clam that will squirt out water if you pay a nickel.
