My boyfriend treated me to brunch at Cusp this past Saturday. He bought a Travelzoo deal and after reading the reviews I was a little apprehensive. However, we were pleasantly surprised!! First of all, the view is AMAZING! Hands down the best view ever for a brunch. Secondly the staff was very nice. I read reviews about how many of them acted rude due to these travelzoo deals, however we did not experience this whatsoever. I loved the fact that everyone seemed like they were ready to go to the beach right after work. But hey, with a view like that I would be tempted too!
I recommend getting there early. We got to brunch at 10 am and it proceeded to get very busy.
Parking: Many people state that there isn't any free parking offered (only valet). However we parked 100 feet away in the residential neighborhood.
Staff: Very attentive. I am really sad I forgot the food servers name (male and liked to surf) but he was very nice. He gave us suggestions and constantly refilled our mimosas.
Food: The boyfriend ordered the chorizo flatbread which was very delicious!! So much protein on it! I was really torn between the short rib hash and the pork belly sandwich but settled on the pork belly sandwich. I WAS NO DISAPPOINTED! One of my top 5 sandwiches of all time. The creamy honey sriracha sauce really hit on point with the pork belly. I drool every time I think of this sandwich now.
Tip: Its only a short walk (3 to 4 blocks) from the beach once you cross La Jolla Shores Drive. If you have one too many mimosas you can walk it off and enjoy the boardwalk by the beach.
Don't be steered away from the bad reviews. When it comes to food, you got to experience if yourself and you wont be disappointed. Now I will be begging him to take me back for my birthday next week!
