Old Vine Cafe
The Camp, 2937 Bristol St., Costa Mesa, CA
Popular for its brunch-type fare in a town rife with competing options, this charming nook has been a hit since 2007 when it opened with The Camp. Fans adore the rustic indoor-outdoor space while foodies rave about urbane dishes, many with an Italian accent. Think barbecue pork omelet by day, seasonal tasting menu by night. Chef-owner Mark McDonald likes to pair his dinners with interesting wine flights from the world over, and he regularly leads culinary excursions to southern Italy.
