Discover Mickey’s Famous Deli In Hermosa Beach
Mickey’s Italian Deli in Hermosa Beach has been a go-to stop for beach goers since 1953 selling cold cuts, cheeses, sandwiches, lasagna and a ton of other goodies (they also cater). Michael Angelo “Mickey” Mance started Mickey’s Italian Delicatessen & Liquor Store in 1953. Just a short walk from the beach, it quickly became a favorite spot for surfers and beachgoers. It has now become a beloved landmark in the South Bay.
Civic Couch host Steve Napolitano sits down with the owners to discuss the history and future of this Hermosa Beach landmark deli.

Mural honoring Hermosa Beach volleyball debuts on June 25th
Completed by noted local photographer Bo Bridges, the mural uses high-resolution photos on a vinyl-based material, and covers the south- and west-facing walls of the foot of the downtown parking structure. It dispenses with veneration of past stars — one image captures nothing above the knees—in favor of a multi-panel ode to the game’s athleticism. Anonymous players leap into the sky, sand exploding off the beach as though propelled by a land-mine.
The video was produced by Civic Couch and made possible by Manhattan Beach Toyota.
