This review covers a Sunday morning brunch. Old Vine Cafe is a -tiny- little wine bar/cafe tucked into the corner of The Camp in Costa Mesa. Oddly enough, they serve brunch - and an incredibly good one at that. We showed up and put our name on the list and waited. This is not unusual and we were actually surprised... More

Baked Caramel Apple French Taste was delicious but way too much to eat :) Had a side of Fried Green Tomatoes. Again, very delicious. How about homemade English Muffins? Yep, delicious. Very cute establishment. A little difficult to find but worth looking for,

A very small restaurant with high quality food. Started with a yummy artichoke and heart of palm salad. It was amazing. Perfectly drizzled with tarragon dressing. New then enjoyed prawns sautéed in Soju, and lemongrass curry sauce with crispy glass noodles. Afterward, we delighted in the fluffy polenta, pan fried and topped with. Pomodoro cream sauce. It was amazing. This... More

We enjoyed a family breakfast together at Old Vine and really enjoyed the high quality and variety of each breakfast. The staff was great as well and we enjoyed shopping a bit prior to breakfast in the unique enclave of shops surrounding the Resturaunt.

Tucked away in The Camp in Costa Mesa, Old Vine Cafe is a dining adventure! Whether you're there for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you won't be disappointed! The atmosphere is casual, the service is friendly attentive and informative, and the food is inventive, well presented and delicious! Try one of the three course lunches or one of the many four...

You may have to wait a while for a table but it well worth the wait! The food is delicious, something your grandma would bake and the portions, too! Try their vegetarian omelet and upgrade for $2 and get either the biscuit with apple butter or the Cinnamon roll. This meal also comes with red potatoes - carbs, carbs, carbs!... More

We were visiting OC recently and wanted a local place to have breakfast and based on the high Tripadvisor ranking we assumed this would be a good place. Firstly, no one to meet us upon arrival, we just ended up seating ourselves. Then we had to ask for some water ( not the start we were hoping for ). Anyhow,... More

This is the best breakfast in Orange County! And, breakfast is served until 3.00 p.m. Delight in a salmon omelette, seasonal French toast (fall is pumpkin pecan), or rabbit Mole. Whether traditional or exotic food for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Cef and owner Mark McDonald knows good food. Not easy to find if just driving by. Located at The Camp... More

I've reviewed Old Vine before, but it's continuing excellence merits another review. They do what they do very well. They season menu is usually a good place to start. It is always well designed and the wine pairings are excellent. Old Vine has a new Executive Chef, so things may be changing slightly, but I'm confident that change will only... More
