Old Vine Café celebrates five years
Old Vine Café at the Camp in Costa Mesa has hit the five-year mark of serving fresh and delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners with an emphasis on seasonal foods, great service and wines.
In celebration, chef/owner Mark McDonald and sommelier Mario Miranda are updating the wine list and reworking pairings for their famed community wine dinners and seasonal tasting menus. With the duo, expect exciting new, elaborate, regional food and wine pairing experiences.
At dinnertime, Old Vine Café offers four-course tasting menus such as seasonal, original, vegetarian, vegan, Italian, comfort, premium and epicurean dishes paired with wine priced from $65 to $80. You can also choose from tossed salads served with herb focaccia crisps, fresh handmade pastas or smaller plates to be shared.
Old Vine is also a favorite spot for breakfast, served from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. You can stop in for sweet, savory and comfort food such as biscuits smothered in Italian sausage, pancetta gravy and served with potatoes. The lengua omelet is excellent as well.
Lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily. You can choose from three-course set lunches, or a la carte. We recommend the panini served with your choice of mixed greens or homemade potato chips.
Favorites include the tuna melt with dill havarti cheese, the quattro formaggi with provolone, gruyere and pecorino "Soledad's Goats" cheese, shiitake mushrooms and arugula with pomodoro sauce for dipping, and pulled pork and chef's BBQ sauce with smoked gouda cheese.
