The Loft at the Montage
30801 S. Coast Highway
Laguna Beach, Ca. 92651
The girl in the picture above is my girlfriend's sister, Emily. Emily was turning twenty-one and in their family they have a tradition of going to the Montage and having brunch for birthdays. Fortunately, I was off that Sunday and could tag along with. I had never been to the Montage, let alone any really high-end resort before, so I had no idea what to expect.
As we pulled into the driveway and valeted my car, the service was phenomenal. Every person that we came into contact with, from the valet to the wait staff, was there to make sure that our every need was met. I had never seen anything like it. The decor of the hotel was contemporary and beautiful, kind of like a model home, with everything in its perfect place. I had the feeling that this is how the other half lives.
The Loft is the Montage's version of a coffee shop. They serve a little bit of everything. We were sat at 11, so we could choose from either their breakfast or lunch menus. After perusing the menus, this is what everyone got.
