If your latest fantasy is to throw away your phone and go become a surf bum somewhere, but your low bank account is preventing that from becoming a reality, go to Muchacho instead. It feels like the type of place you’d go to in your alternate California life and you also won’t have to spend very much money here. The indoor space isn’t very large, so if you come with friends, sit on the patio instead. Once everyone has their coffee and breakfast tacos, push together a few of their tables and pretend you feel a breeze coming from the imaginary ocean ocean.
