Brekkie is my favorite meal of the day. Pork products, eggs and potatoes are the best reasons to get up in the morning. Fish? Sure!
I drove up PCH in Huntington Beach last week for a low-key seafood meal. We dined at Fish Camp,
which has a chill, fast-casual concept seen at places such as Pei Wei.
Orders are placed at the counter, seating location is up to you,
beverages are unlimited and accessible, and your server makes a beeline
to your exact table once the order is up. I was already a fan of its
extensive menu, so imagine my surprise when I spotted signage
advertising brekkie coming soon.
While the menu was not quite confirmed when I inquired, I did manage to verify most of the selection with management. Standard fare pancakes, smoked bacon and benedicts are offered. What merits a visit is the seafood: crab omelet or a bagel with fresh lox. Carnivores are appeased with a steak-and-eggs option. For lighter appetites, stick to the parfaits, oatmeal and specialty coffees. Are you recovering from a looooong evening? There isn't a full bar, but Bloody Marys and mimosas are definitely offered.
Fish Camp started the early-morning hours this past weekend. Saturday and Sundays, it opens at 7 a.m. and serves until 1 p.m. Between noon and 1 p.m., both brekkie and lunch menus are offered. Other features include free wifi (ask a server for the username and password) and a fish counter for folks wanting to cook up seafood from the comfort of their own kitchen. Afterward, cruise down to the pier for a stroll, and you've got yourself the makings of a lazy Sunday.
