I’m Just Here for the Food: The Beachcomber at Crystal Cove


This is what dining in California should be like.

If you’re ever looking for a special meal, the Beachcomber offers a unique atmosphere. Located at Crystal Cove State Park, the Beachcomber is right on the beach. Some friends and I came for lunch, and their kids had fun playing on the beach and making sandcastles while we waited to be seated.

It’s not a big place, so it can take a while to get seated, but there’s also a “To-Go” window, from which you can get some Beignets to tide you over. They’re served with maple syrup and whipped cream, and they’re fried bites of heaven.

Once we were seated, we took a look at the menus. We decided to split a few things, so we ordered the Green Goddess Calimari, the Tunisian Pizza, and the Grilled Ahi Steak Sandwich.

The food was pretty good (especially the Tunisian Pizza, which was absolutely scrumptious), but I did think it was a little overpriced.

Still, for the money you pay, it’s a pretty unique lunch experience. And the view is just amazing. I’d love the opportunity to come again.
