Contemporary American | Costa Mesa, North Orange County

Ventured here directly off a flight for brunch for my birthday. The ambiance by the outdoor fountain in the garden was great, though noisy due to planes flying overhead. The Ahi Tuna, Crab Cakes, and Shrimp Cocktail were awesome! The staff was great. And I was very appreciative of the nice dessert surprise, compliments of the chef, for my birthday. Will definitely return...soon. More

Discover Orange County

Located in the sunny state of California, Orange County is known for its many tourist attractions. Considering that Orange County consists of 34 cities and is more populous than 21 U.S. states, you can bet the attractions include not only the best surfing beaches, the Balboa ferry, and sites like Knott’s Berry Farm and Disneyland but also a huge selection of restaurants. The warm climate enhances the growth of fresh, organic vegetables and fruits, which can be found in many restaurants. Although iconic California foods like Rocky Road ice cream and sourdough bread may have originated in other CA cities, they’re also popular in Orange County. Fast food places, drive-ins, and Korean barbecues are popular in this area, too. Smoothies in the summer, however, take the cake.
