One of the places that Elke and I like to go for brunch on a weekend is the Jack O’Neill Restaurant and Lounge at the Dream Inn. Use the Dream Inn parking lot when you eat, and it normally doesn’t cost you anything to park.
The dining area offers a nice window view out onto the ocean as you dine.
Jack O’Neill is a local Santa Cruz legend. He parleyed a love of body surfing into a widely-known personal brand, selling wetsuits, surf gear, and clothing. His image is iconic.
