Now here’s The Lab, which is located just across the street from The Camp! They call this one the “anti-mall” but it’s totally a mall, just filled with some great independent shops and restaurants.
My favorite stops: Calipoke and Honey & Butter.
Poke bowls for the win! Fresh fish; savory, sweet and spicy sauces; and an assortment of crunchy veggies and toppings. A regular bowl is the perfect size to share if you’re hungry; a large if you’re hangry.
Honey & Butter
Macarons dressed like your favorite characters sold out of an airstream decorated with Tsum Tsums. Yup, that sentence happened.
What else? The Lab has lots of places to sit and chat, enjoy the day, and people watch. Costa Mesa knows what’s up. Give your fave OC stops a shout out below!
Good record store in the middle looks like a trailer.
