This past Thursday, it was a beautiful summer's day so I drove down to Malibu to see what I could find and drain my wallet of some well earned dollars. I figured that I deserved some summer fun after the hell week at work.
I had read about The Beachcomber Cafe in a local magazine so that's where I stopped. It's a relatively small restaurant that sits right on the Malibu pier. Apparently it's the new heart of Malibu. Yahoo!
If you're going, be prepared to do valet parking for $6 and have cash. If you want to do some beach exploring and not eat at the restaurant, then the same parking spot will cost you $14. Those prices are fairly standard in LA. Not too much of a surprise there.
The view was really great. Malibu is postcard perfect and the restaurant definitely didn't disappoint with the ambiance.
The menu was a lot of American fare. I ordered a Kobe beef hamburger to the tune of $15.
While it may look so-so in the picture (and they were a little stingy with the lackluster fries), the burger itself was pretty freakin' amazing. Juicy, tasty and very filling. I gave it an A+. Yum.
And Friday it was back to work.
