Going down to Newport Coast

manku Aug 13, 2010 07:49 AM

Going in a couple weeks to the Marriott Time Shares in Newport...been before, but am looking for any recs...fyi, we have two kids, so nothing fancy.

Moderate to inexpensive (including takeout) in Corona Del Mar and Newport would be great.

Please don't recommend Javiers - I'm not returning there.

      Try The Galley for breakfast or lunch. It's kind of hidden away off Bayside Drive in Newport; been around since the 40s and is a great spot. Cash only.

      829 Harbor Island Drive
      Newport Beach, CA 92660-7235
      (949) 673-4110

      Also, Sabatino's is a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. They make their own sausage-heaven! It's located at the Lido Shipyard.
      Both of these places are "old Newport", before the attack of glitz.

      251 Shipyard Way, Newport Beach, CA 92663

        Bayfront Cafe & Restaurant is a pretty good Mediterranean (Turkish/Armenian style) place with a water view for something different!

          Gary's Deli in CDM is really good and casual. Great for takeout. Eclectic menu but everything we've had has been yummy... from their oven roasted turkey sandwiches to their tacos. The ladies that work there are really nice too. Parking can tricky but we usually find something in the back.

            It is a little out of the way, but try this place for a nice slice of New York pizza.

            Al's New York Cafe 1673 Irvine Ave Ste B, Costa Mesa, CA 92627

            Near Newport Harbor High School, around 1 mile or 2 north from PCH

              In addition dining in, the Quiet woman on PCH in Corona Del Mar has take-out

              Zincs Cafe has good vegetarian food (even for the carnivores) and desserts.

              If you're just looking for sandwiches or maybe a ham dinner and sides, there is also Honeybaked Ham on PCH.
