The Waverly in Cardiff is a bit of a drive from Downtown, but it’s within walking distance of a great longboarding beach, and a popular camping spot. With its pastel tones and airy setting, the restaurant is a pleasant place to eat anything from their menu that’s kind of all over the place—they’ve got soft shell crab sandwiches with chipotle aioli, funfetti pancakes, and Turkish poached eggs with Aleppo pepper and cooling yogurt and mint. 

It gets pretty busy on weekends, so if you’re coming with a group, definitely make a reservation. We like it best as a fun brunch spot, since there are plenty of specialty cocktails, non-alcoholic spritzers, local hard seltzers, and kombuchas, as well as a resident magician and mentalist if you’re game for some David Copperfield energy with your mimosa.
