Harborhouse Cafe

Jeff and I, who share a love of brunch, headed north to Sunset Beach to try out Harborhouse Cafe.

I had no idea where Sunset Beach was, I had never even heard of it. Turns out its near Huntington Beach.

The web site says it is a very popular spot with locals and surfers and while its open 24/7 we opted for 10 a.m. Note to self parking is a pain. I drove around for about 10 minutes looking for a spot. I hate that. Once we parked we had a 30 minute wait. To me that is a good sign.

Once we got seated service was quick. Harborhouse has a diverse menu and boasts over 25 varieties of omlettes. I had a scramble and Jeff had the chorizo and eggs. It was okay, nothing spectacular. I was disappointed that my coffee cup sat empty for a while. We had to flag down someone to get a refill. That is a bad sign.

I don't know if it was worth the drive up there, but if you're in the area I'd choose it over Dennys, it definitely has more atmosphere. I think I most enjoyed going to the beach after breakfast to just sit and enjoy the water.
