Newport Beach, CA– Undeniably charming, The Beachcomber Cafe is located in Crystal Cove State Park along an uncrowded beach and presents an idyllic setting for any dining occasion. Opened since August of 2006 and opened year round, The Beachcomber Cafe occupies a former beachfront cottage which is set amidst several historic Crystal Cove Cottages that are available for overnight rentals. Crystal Cove State Park has 3.2 miles of beach coastline and 2,400 acres of undeveloped woodland which is used for hiking, biking and horseback riding. The offshore waters are designated as an underwater park for scuba diving.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plan your perfect day by allowing time for a brisk hike, a casual beach stroll or rent beach chairs and umbrellas from The Beachcomber Cafe to simply while in the sun.
We had the good fortune to have lunch at The Beachcomber Cafe recently and a few of our favorite dishes were the sashimi style Ahi Tacos stuffed into crispy wonton shells and drizzled with sriracha aioli; the buttery Maine Lobster Rolls topped with wasabi caviar and tarragon aioli, the Frutti di Mare Linguini in lobster sauce with ciabatta bread; and last but certainly not least the decadent, caramel sauce drizzled Banana Sundae. The portions are large and perfect for sharing!
Since we threw caution to the wind with our entrée selections, we were thankful to discover calorie conscious cocktails such as the Slim Mojito, and Really Skinny Margarita made from Partida Tequila, real agave nectar and fresh lime juice. Both drinks are under 150 calories. In addition to the Bikini Drinks, there is a vast selection of beer, champagne, margaritas, martinis and a carefully selected Reserve Wine list that includes a 2008 Far Niente Chardonnay as well as a Kuleto “Estate” Chardonnay.
