All About the Seafood

Brunch at Waterman’s Harbor in Dana Point is amazing on any Sunday, but on Easter Sunday, the chocolate fountain and bottomless mimosas seem to flow even more freely. Waterman’s is known for its fresh seafood, and their brunch does not lack the bounty from the sea. Situated directly on the water’s edge, you can take in the views of the harbor and delight in an after-meal walk to work off some of those chocolate covered strawberries. watermandp.com
