Visited December 5, 2013.

I didnít even know about this place until recently, yet Iíve not only driven by it a few times Iíve even walked right by it a few times. Itís an interesting set up for sure. Located in downtown San Clemente, youíll find plenty of rich kids and people that own multi-million dollar houses a little higher up the hill, but theyíre all dressed like surfer bums. The people seemed nice enough but not being an owner of a $60,000 Mercedes made me feel out of place. This restaurant doubles as a bar and a deli. They serve food but most people were there either drink beer/wine or stopping in to take some cheese to go. You can try seven cheeses for $24, a charcuterie board for $17, or get your own meal from $10 to $25. I didnít do any of that since we had just eaten up the street at Pizza Port.

The beer list is good. Actually, the bottle list is good. The tap list is small. I appreciate the presence of Chimay on tap as well as a real hefe (Paulaner) but there are only six taps to choose from and on this night they didnít have a good IPA. Luckily I had just had a pint of Claudies at Pizza Port as well as a few samples of some hoppy beers so I was more in the mood for a hefe anyway, but this is southern California, get a good IPA on tap.

All in all this is a nice place and some day when my salary has an extra digit I might stop here more often. Until then Iíll eat at Pizza Port.
