Jongewaard's Bake 'N Broil is a venerable Long Beach diner that has been putting out fine baked goods for many years. They have all sorts of family-restaurant type dishes as well, but the regular food I've had has been pretty mediocre. This is a place for the sweet tooth.
The cream pies and creamy cheesecakes are wonderful. Coconut cream pie is thick and creamy with a strong coconut taste but not too sweet. I also love the lemon cream cheese pie, consisting of lemon curd piled on a light and creamy cheesecake base; all the crusts are perfectly flaky. While I like all the cream pies I've had, I do wish the chocolate cream pie had a stronger chocolate flavor. Jongewaard's other cakes, from red velvet to German chocolate, are also very good, but I go for the creamy ones.
