Get Your Seafood Fix At Santa Monica Seafood Market & Café In Costa Mesa
Earlier this week, we dined at Santa Monica Seafood Market and Café in Costa Mesa. This unique establishment is located in the heart of Costa Mesa off off 17th street.
As I walked into the market, I was completely drawn to the colorful seafood that was displayed for customers to purchase. Everything looked super fresh, and the seafood selection was endless. Santa Monica Seafood is both a Market and Café. Guests can conveniently shop, dine, and or pick up their favorite seafood or prepared dishes. SCORE! Why haven’t I been here before?
The staff was super friendly and were ready to serve and answer any questions about their array of seafood. The menu selection had sooo much to choose from, check out Costa Mesa’s full menu here.
Below is a recap of our lovely dinner. The café ambiance is casual, yet chic. And the creative and colorful dishes were flavorful and delicious.
