Is there a better way to start the new year then laughing with friends, enjoying the sun and drinking “Bottomless Mimosa’s”?
Last Sunday I was invited to attend a small get together at the Malibu Cafe at Calamigos Ranch, since it was not my weekend with the kids, I figured it was good timing and I hadn’t been able to attend a lot of functions with this group. I can’t tell you how happy I was to have gone, I laughed with this group, ate great food, sat in an great environment and it all just felt great! I had never been to the Malibu Cafe at Calamigos Ranch and to be honest I thought it was a different location/place then what it was. Nonetheless, I dressed appropriately for the event, especially by wearing flat shoes. Ladies, the Malibu Cafe at Calamigos Ranch is an outdoor location and the ground is grass and don’t be surprised if you find wet muddy places, so please, please wear flats!
You will know you have reached the The Calamigos Ranch by the beautiful trees and amazing entry,
has a lot going on so pay attention when you pull into the driveway, this is the main entry, you do not want to end up here unless you are attending a wedding, you must go right
and go down the small hill where you end up on a dirt lot, the Malibu Cafe only offers valet parking, look how beautiful this is…
after leaving your car with at the valet you walk around to the hostess where they will seat you
it was so magical to me, I loved the simplicity and elegance that the Calamigos Ranch offered. I got there early and met with my two friends and began taking photos of the grounds, look how creative this was and it was bright and colorful!
so what do 3 friends do while they are waiting for others to arrive? We take fun photos together, here we are throwing kisses
Others arrived and we did get seated, of course we immediately ordered our mimosa’s, here we are at the table, see how rustic it is?
We all ordered amazing food and the Calamigos Ranch offers enough variety to please everyone, here is what I ordered, it was the Beef Has with Fried Eggs, it was yummy! If I ordered it again, I’d ask for the eggs to be a little more runny as to me that’s the best part, the yolk all over the meat and potatoes!
Here are some other plates, waffles and fried chicken of course!
A salad with a a peanut sesame dressing that was delicious!
and the healthy egg white plate with hash browns, sorry it was the only photo I took, just look beyond the potatoes to see the egg whites ha ha
While eating we watched kids play on the pool table, the one with chandelier hanging over it
it’s family oriented with dads throwing a football
or you can have a romantic setting
you can walk over a small bridge that takes you to a small pond that you can paddle boat on
If you are coming out to Southern Californa and have time to visit the Malibu Cafe at Calamingos Ranch, I would recommend it 100%. Plan on being there a while as service is slow but when you have such beauty around you, who really cares about slow service…that being said, if you are doing the bottomless mimosa’s you may need to encourage your server to visit your table often as only 2 girls did the bottomless and we had to call over our waiter for service.
