What the community has to say about Beachcomber Cafe - Crystal Cove

Information about this business (3)

Located right on the sand of Crystal Cove, the Beachcomber operates in one of the historic cottages, and features seafood and mixed drinks. The quality of the food and the service is best proved by its popularity: the wait is often two hours, and limited reservations are accepted only on-line. However, a little planning can make the wait hassle free: make the Beachcomber reception the first...

The Beachcomber at Crystal Cove Restaurant Review

Located in the Crystal Cove Historic District, The Beachcomber is perhaps Orange County's best on-the-beach restaurant. Nestled among the cliffs and cottages at '40s-era Crystal Cove, it sits as a tribute to the eclectic village of artists and families who once lived here. Set in a Craftsman-style bungalow, the eatery is not just a casual café with a view. Some people frequent the place for...

View and surroundings absolutely can't be beat. Joint is right there on the sand in a park, accessible by $1 shuttle or ten-minute walk from the nearest parking lot. Crystal Cove, the beach it calls home, is not only naturally stunning but full of Hollywood history. Food is pedestrian, but expected: salads, burgers, big desserts. But everything tastes better on the beach, no?

We had out of town guests, and wanted to take them somewhere special, and near the ocean, so The Beachcomber was an easy choice. We went for lunch on a weekday, but I still made reservations, as...

Yes. Yes, I did fall for this tourist trap but I'm glad I did. We made a reservation for 7:45AM and arrived at 7:30 at the parking lot across the PCH. As we pulled in, we saw The Beachcomber...
