Greeter's Corner

Any breakfast featuring this ocean view from your table is already pretty good. And what's great about Greeter's Corner in Laguna Beach is that you can also eat tasty, inexpensive, no-fuss food while enjoying this view :)
A wedding brought us down to Laguna Beach recently, and instead of paying for overpriced hotel breakfast I told Justin we should go to Greeter's Corner. One of my childhood favorites, I grew up eating french toast here almost every other weekend. Now that I'm a little more health conscious than I was at age 10, I went for an egg white veggie omelette with wheat toast and fruit.
Very white on the outside, bursting with veggies on the inside...
Justin got the same thing, and what he liked as much, if not more, than the food and the views was the fact that the restaurant has history.
It's named after a gentleman who always stood at this very location and waved at passersby to cheer people up during the depression. Today he'd just be a crazy homeless man, but in a less cynical time he was revered :) And thus the restaurant serves a tribute to him. His footprints are outside...
As is his waving statue...
All right next to the gorgeous view of Laguna's main beach, featured in this lovely postcard our waitress gave us with the bill...
I love Laguna. It has more character than any other place within OC, including lots of fantastic restaurants and art galleries. If you haven't been before, go. And pay homage to the greeter.
