Mrs. Olson's Coffee Hut - One of the 59 Best Breakfast Places in America


About a week ago I received an e-mail from Esquire magazine that included an article titled "The 59 Best Breakfast Places in America."

To my surprise, they listed a restaurant in Oxnard only 20 minutes from our home called Mrs. Olson's Coffee Hut. To my much greater surprise even though Mrs. Olson's Coffee Hut opened in 1974, I had never heard of it, much less tasted their wares.

So, thus emboldened, I drove to the Hollywood Beach area of beautiful Oxnard today to expand my horizons.

And my waist line.

Modest Looks

This instantly got my juices flowing because the #1 rule of my style of dining is "Any Hole-in-the-Wall Bistro = AWESOME dining experience!"

The Bacon Breakfast Burrito

Esquire highly recommended the Breakfast Burrito. Who was I to argue?

It was large but manegable. The ingredients were prepared perfectly and after ten minutes I was now ready to face the world.

Rule #1 NEVER fails!!!

As for location, Mrs. Olson's Coffee Hut is just a half block from the Pacific Ocean.

Hollywood Beach has lots of sand

Yes, that is the Pacific Ocean.

Nice beachfront homes, NOT CHEAP!!!
