“Shares a location with a great record and book store. Great coffee, luncheon fare and simple but sumptuous dinners. Downtown at 4th and Linden. Check out Saylor's Art Supply next door and the PowWow murals in the parking lot.”

“This is without a doubt my go to spot in Long Beach for coffee and tasty croissant sandwiches. It feels like a little paradise inside a coffee shop. The little patio area makes me feel like I'm in a forest. Greenery, knick knacks, flowers, art..so beautiful. The Birdcage is VERY laid back, and I've never seen it very crowded. The servers and owners are really nice!”

Cuppa Cuppa is located on the corner of the street, conveniently within walking distance of the Long Beach Convention Center.
