One of the best places to watch a sunset in Dana Point. Though beautiful any time of day, come with an picnic on the grassy hill at dusk to watch the waves and evening beauty.

Entertainment & Activities
Love this little historic theater. It's small but usually shows all the same stuff as the bigger theaters and is cooler and more quaint. Also, there's one room upstairs where you can order wine and food etc. Call ahead for more details.

Food scene
A hidden gem in Dana Point, Café Maison is found in a strip mall but don't let that deter you. The food is masterfully prepared and presented, hardy, beautiful and delicious. Their Ossa Bucco on the dinner menu is to die for.

Beautiful atmosphere with huge open windows for a lovely dose of fresh air. I like to do their small bites for a light lunch (they also have beautifully crafted espresso drinks). Dinners are by reservation only, and several courses, a nice place to go big for a special event.

Hands down my favorite brunch spot in all of OC, maybe in all the US! I believe they're only serving a three course brunch these days, but it's well worth the investment! Check out their menu online.

Favorite casual sushi in town. Great service, consistently good sushi! I love the Healthy Fullmoon Roll, and not because it's healthy any more than because it's delicious!

The best coffee in town. They do their own roasting and make all their own flavoring as well as their almond milk, in house. The pastries are ordered from a local baker and the GF donuts are so so good.
