Food Scene
Noisy and crowded, but delicious Italian food and wine. Come early because there is usually a line of people waiting to get in. Walk on over from our house. You will need the walk home after your tummy is stuffed with yummy pasta.

Love their breakfasts! Fun place to hang out for wine or beer in the evening. I am not as big a fan of their lunches and happy hour food, but in the morning or evening, this is a beautiful location to enjoy the waterfront.

The Cannery Village is a nice place to walk to for coffee any time of day. Alta is a popular place to hang out. They have delicious coffee and homemade muffins and other goodies. Their breakfast is good and they have an outside patio. There is a cool warehouse across the street with lots of interesting furniture, lamps, accessories and hand-made items for sale.

There is another El Ranchito on the Peninula that is walking distance from the cottage, but the one in Costa Mesa has better food, better drinks and better service. They have a good happy hour and it is only a 10-minute drive away for my favorite Mexican food in our area. I love their chiles relleno.

Corona del Mar is a gorgeous beach. From the grassy bluff above the beach, you can have a wonderful picnic dinner to watch the most glorious sunset around. Just bring takeout or some prepared food, a blanket to stretch out on the lawn and the beach chairs that we have provided in our cottage.

Almost every day, we walk to 32nd Street Beach from our house with our beach chairs and towels. Because you must get around the canal, you need to walk down our street toward Newport Blvd, through the alley, across Balboa Blvd at the crosswalk, and then straight to the beach on 32nd Street. If you want to be closer to some restaurants, coffee places and shops, go to the beach at one of the two piers--Newport Pier or Balboa Pier. On weekends, you can take the trolley so you don't have to drive. Parking can be a hassle and you have to put money in the meter, so we prefer to walk or trolley there. You can also rent bikes and ride along the boardwalk for miles.

You can get on or off wherever you need to go. Since parking is always a challenge, this is a great way to get to Balboa Island, the Piers, or your favorite beaches or restaurants.

Good mai-tais and well drinks. They serve free hot dogs and chips during Happy Hour. They have a few special drink prices (not the mai-tais, though) but they do not have a special menu for appetizers. You just order off their regular menu, but if you eat a hotdog, you won't be very hungry anyway.

Balboa Island is a must to visit. Walk around the main street and look through clothing shops, gift & jewelry stores, coffee places & restaurants, and great views of the bay. You can drive there via PCH to Bayside Drive or take the trolley, bike or drive to the ferry at the end of the Peninsula and ride across the bay to get there. Find one of the ice cream shops for a Balboa Bar, which is an ice cream bar dipped in chocolate and coated with sprinkles or nuts. Delicious! They also have chocolate dipped frozen bananas.
