Full Disclosure: I paid for this meal with my own money and I was in no way reimbursed for this blog post. The opinions are completely my own.
Well, we have finally gotten to our last day in California. I was sad to leave, but writing all of these restaurant reviews has definitely made me realize that I was lucky to spend a long and fun time there.
Our last full day there was a Saturday and the husband didn’t have to work (yay!) so we slept in a bit and headed to a restaurant nearby for brunch. 26 Beach is where we ended up.
26 Beach has an eclectic beach style – but it somehow still seems very put together. The dining area is pretty small, so we were pretty lucky to get a seat right away. When we left there was a line out the door. Their brunch menu is filled with many different types of french toasts, combinations of eggs, breakfast pizza and more.
I decided on the the 3 Way: 3 eggs, breakfast potatoes & a choice of thick applewood bacon, italian turkey sausage or a hamburger patty. I chose the turkey sausage and gave it to the husband to eat. I also ordered a side of fresh fruit.
I actually didn’t love the meal. The breakfast potatoes were good, but a little bit burnt. The eggs were alright, but a little bit too runny for my taste for scrambled eggs. The fruit was good – and I did like that included pineapple and mango instead of the usual strawberries, cantaloupe and honeydew.
The husband had The Stuffed One -french toast stuffed with cream cheese & strawberry preserves, served with warm maple syrup and plenty of fresh strawberries on top.
Since I have an awesome husband, I was able to snag a bit of this. It was very rich but delicious! After tasting it I was sad that I went the safe route and didn’t try one of the many varieties of french toast that they had!
Taste: B+, while my meal wasn’t extraordinary, the french toast definitely was so I had to give it a better score that if I was basing it on just my meal.
Cost: B, both of our meals were $12 (plus extra for my fruit) and while that seems reasonable for the giant delicious french toast, it isn’t so much for my meal.
Would I go there again? Yeah I think I would if I am in the area again. There are definitely many varieties of french toast that I would like to have tried. Like this one: S’mores French Toast – Challa Bread French toast stuffed with Nutella & Mashmallow Fluff coated with graham cracker crumbs and topped with our chocolate sauce, whipped cream & strawberries. Yeah that sounds delicious.
