Taps, Beard Papa & Pinkberry in Corona

OCAnn | Apr 21, 200809:53 AM     3

So I ventured east of the 15 to meet friends for brunch @ Taps' new location in Corona (Dos Lagos). The seafood/jazz brunch is nearly identical to the one in Brea, except the one in Corona had king crab legs (which were skinny tho good) and Beard Papa cream puffs.

The differences, however, were noticeable: this location isn't nearly as packed (nearly non-existent queues). This made for a slightly quieter, more relaxed dining and therefore a more enjoyable meal. And it was cheaper: $30/person.

When I picked up the Beard Papa cream puff, it came w/a card that said it was in the same Dos Lagos shopping center, where Taps is located. So after the meal, we strolled to Beard Papa. Though I'm not a huge fan of Beard Papa, Mr OCAnn loves them; so I bought a couple to take home. And next door to Beard Papa is Pinkberry (which appeared to be closed).

In any case, the gas prices wouldn't justify the cheaper brunch to Corona from where I am, but if I lived in east Anaheim, Taps in Dos Lagos would be my choice. The atmosphere there is much, much better.
