Ladies Who Dine :: The Misfit Bar

Ladies Who Dine :: The Misfit Bar

The LWD (Ladies Who Dine) had its first ever brunch this past Saturday. Our stop? The voguish and quaint Santa Monica locale, The Misfit Bar. With the ever-present 405 traffic, it took about an hour to get there. But, dressed in an array of orange (in honor of bottomless mimosas), we arrived – pleased with the convenient parking, the classic ambience, and convivial wait staff. Open at 11:00, the Misfit offers a motley selection of brunch items along with its daily lunch menu. A great time was enjoyed by all, I dare say. I plan to return soon. Maybe even next weekend. We’ll see.

The Misfit Bar

Classically contemporary, if there is such a thing.

The Ladies

I loved our tucked-away little booth.

White Wine Sangria

We arrived during Happy Hour (who knew it started so early on Saturdays?), which meant half-priced cocktails. So for only three and a half bucks, I had to try the sangria. It did not disappoint.

Tricked out COTC

I don’t know what the official name of this dish is, but it kicked a$$.

Housemade Croissant

Served with almond butter and preserves, this is probably the best croissant I’ve ever had. And that’s saying a lot – I’m a croissanteur (a made-up word for someone who has eaten a lot of croissants in her lifetime).

Baked Mac + Cheese

The green chiles make this dish a winner. How does it compare to my beloved Smac and Cheese at Nickel Diner? Don’t know… pretty close.

Famous French Pancakes

Served with berries and creme fresh – these were scintillating.

Ahi Tuna Burger

Not my dish, but it sure looked tasty.


These were awesome, delicious, and wonderful – served with ranchero sauce and salsa verde. Too bad my belly was already full by the time they arrived.

Wild Mushroom Omelet

The “Mushroom” ordered the mushroom omelet. I sampled it since she was sitting right next to me. Pretty darn good.

Bottomless Mimosas

Keep ’em coming!

Comp Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

Most of the ladies didn’t dig the sea salt on the cookies, but I found them delightful!

The Ladies

The beach is two blocks down – great for a sobering stroll.


Checking out what we’re missing in the LBC – waves!

Wedge & Jen-Gon

Our first LWD baby.

Jen, Mushroom, Wedge

Orange-y Beach Babes.

Gonzo and Wedge

A big hug for a restaurant well selected!


I didn’t want to leave, but my ride said we had to go.
