Fuel Your Day With These Savory Brunch Staples From Craft House in Dana Point

These Two Dishes Are What Brunchin’ Is All About!

It’s a simple fact of life: brunch makes everything better, especially when that brunch is full of gluttonous, cheat-day-worthy dishes. After a year like 2020—we all deserve a special treat, so why not commence the celebrations at Craft House? Tucked on PCH right next to Dana Point’s Lantern District, Craft House is known for its relaxed vibes, friendly atmosphere and irresistible menu. And with these two comfort food classics, Owner and Executive Chef Blake Mellgren is eager to fill bellies and lift spirits with classic brunch dishes. Best Brunch Dana Point

Chile Verde Chilaquiles

“If you’re coming in here for brunch, you better not plan on doing activities,” Chef Mellgren laughs. “We’re gonna get you drunk, get you full and get you back to bed.” One of his favorite brunch-day binges is the chilaquiles with tender pork shoulder, runny eggs and refreshing salsa verde. Enjoy your sunny-side-up eggs with a dose of sunshine on Craft House’s newly expanded outdoor patio!

Fried Chicken and Waffle

With crispy, succulent fried chicken and a thick, fluffy ricotta waffle, it’s no wonder that these two are a match made in heaven. But what really ties it all together is the chili honey butter. “It makes the dish even more gluttonous than it is in the first place,” Chef Mellgren notes. “We lean a little Southern here anyway…just doing it our way.” Best Brunch Dana Point
