We’re still in Carlsbad for a visit to a great place for brunch by the sea, as DINI’S BY THE SEA (a.k.a. DINI’S BISTRO) on the Coast Road/Route 101 (click on the Route 101 link to take a trip by car down the coast road with 2 videos).
Yes, there is traffic on the coast road, but it’s not too bad off season and if you do go when they are having one of the marathons, the road is closed an the views of the ocean are unobstructed. And it’s quiet, except for lively brunch conversation.
The Brunch Menu has a wide selection of egg dishes, pancakes, waffles, and omelettes. And of course champagne or a Mimosa works well, too. Dini’s is a wonderful beach-side setting to enjoy either before or after a walk on the beach.
And don’t miss HAPPY HOUR.
Dini’s has a reputation for it’s Happy Hour on the Deck or inside with great sunset views and a lively crowd year-round, residents as well as visitors. Beware, it can get pretty crowded in the summer, but if the garage is full, park park on the local streets nearby. Come as you are.
