By now, I hope you've read my reviews and are starting to see the similarities and differences between my favorite brunch spots. The Cottage Restaurant is a top pick for me in Orange County. Not only does it sit on the famed Pacific Coast Highway (see) near the water, but it also has a fabulous patio.
The first time I went to The Cottage, I was with Caroline - you might have read some of her blogs and reviews here! :) I got the Maui Maui Omelete and two years later, it is still my favorite.
The Cottage is a perfect weekend brunch spot. It actually sits next to Madison Square Garden, but has a much different feel. It is what I like to call country chic. While it may seem small, there is actually quite a bit of seating outside. The wait can get to be more than 40 minutes or so, but it is worth it and there are so many shops within walking distance in Laguna Beach that you can easily pass the wait time.
The food is fresh and wonderful - again, I recommend the Maui Maui Omelete. It has the perfect amount of fruit, egg and cheese.
This is a great family and/ or friends spot. It can hold a lot of folks and there is a large variety in the menu - so everyone will be happy.
I highly recommend this spot. You should put it into your regular rotation!
