The Beachcomber Cafe Crystal Cove

MEalcentric | Jan 28, 200702:08 PM

I finally ventured out to the beachcomber for breakfast. Got there at 8:45 and there was a short 30 minute wait, which wasnt too bad with the Sunday paper in hand sitting on the sand.

We started off with a bloody marry and a mimosa. The bloody marry was decent, but clearly made with a mix, though I appeciated the real celery salt on the rim. The mimosa appeared to be made with fresh squeezed juice which was a plus.

Service was a little slow and erratic but friendly. I settled on the egg white frittata with cottage cheese and toast. Girlfriend had the greek omlette. I wasnt impressed with either one, especially since mine came out dry, gummy and pretty cold (to the point where the cheese on top had firmed up). The frittata portion of my egg whites consisted of a few slices of mushroom and a few dices of tomato. Her meal was a little better (and warmer) and was a better sized portion as well.

Overall, I wont be rushing back, especially with wait which I have heard can be several hours.
