Weekend brunch has always been a special treat for me. Harley Laguna Beach’s recently added Sunday brunch proved a fabulous destination last week.
Bottomless mimosas are a great start, and Chef offers various juices to suit your favorite.
The menu is hearty, offering everything from a melt-in-your-mouth delicious coffee cake to a hefty breakfast burrito, Huevos Rancheros, Chilaquiles, Avocado Toast and the only Dutch pancake in town. I opted for Avocado Toast with a side egg and crisp bacon.
In my experience, Avocado Toast can be a hit-or-miss kind of thing depending on the creative bent of the chef. In this case, of course, it was a sublime dish with just enough sass in the pickled onions and peppers to bring the entire dish alive.
In addition to Chef’s Sunday Morning Sandwich, the brunch menu offers three additional sandwiches along with Baked Local Halibut and Prime Flat Iron Steak with eggs. Choose vegetable and salad options, too. Harley’s Sunday brunch is open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with reservations strongly suggested.
