The Harbor House Café on Pacific Coast Hwy in Sunset Beach opened in 1939, and is now open 24 hours a day. Clearly it is a local institution, and deservedly so. It’s your basic diner, but the walls are covered with movie posters and headshots...More

Great 24-hour diner with huge menu. The breakfasts here are great, but I'll always come back for their signature Hot Crab Sandwich. Whenever I'm on the OC coast, I'll make a special effort to get to this place or it's Dana Harbor twin.

Cute roadside place. Kinda kitchy. Food was fantastic. Lots of choices. I had an avocado bacon burger, it was huge with a generous portion of avocado. My husband had a crab sandwich. He loved it. The crab was really fresh, very delicious. Great service.

We were here with a group of friends. We went early on the weekend. They get very busy, so if you are not there early, you will wait. I think we went about 8 am. We sat in the back room where there was a...More
