Crystal Cove Breakfast

This morning DH, DS and I ventured to Crystal Cove State Park for a wonderful breakfast at the Beachcomber Cafe. It’s literally on the sand. And since the ocean breeze can be nippy for sedentary diners, the restaurant supplies its own branded fleece lap blankets at every seat.

I wrapped mine around my legs for the novelty of it, but, as this photo shows, it was clear, cloudless, and marvelously mild today. A few brave souls were even frolicking in the water sans wetsuits.

The food was better than average, but not outstanding. The view and ambiance, though, are incomparable. Next time we come, we’ll try the coffee and basket of beignets. It sounds like perfect “lounging on a Sunday morning at the beach” food.
