always eat well



Sweet Dixie is southern inspired dining in the heart of the Long Beach arts district. Stay local, be happy and always, eat well!


 Sweet Dixie means genuine comfort food– food with southern roots and also some inspired imagination. The chef,  part of the Mama’s of San Francisco family, worked, baked and managed the flagship original Mama’s location in North Beach. She and her family moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1999, Here,she discovered her interest in kitchen management, menu development and love of Southern food. “It was the food that spoke to my soul,”


Sweet Dixie Kitchen is on the corner of 3rd and Elm streets in the Arts District in Long Beach. We are in the kitchen daily, personally plating each plate of food, developing new recipes and producing some of Long Beach’s best biscuits, breakfasts, comfort food and pastries. It’s traditional Southern cuisine but much is redefined to be healthier and lighter. “There is simply no reason food can’t look and taste amazing with the best ingredients, better cooking methods,” says Chef.

Come experience food- the way we do in the South, as connection - we spend time together and celebrate each other with a meal. Stay local, stay happy and always eat well!!


Please note: All menu items subject to change based on seasonal availability. We are a small family business and space can be an issue at times of high volume. Some online menu items may differ from menu in store, on a day to day basis.
