The Wait is Over: Feast & Fareway Restaurant is Open at the Coronado Golf Course

The wait is over for the much-anticipated opening of Feast & Fareway at the Coronado Municipal Golf Course. Feast & Fareway is the newest restaurant to be opened by Rise and Shine Restaurant Group who took over management of the golf course restaurant in September 2018. The restaurant closed in January 2019 for an extensive remodel, and while not complete in its entirety, the restaurant and bar are open for business.

There is still artwork to be installed and some acoustic changes to soften the noise. The dining room will be completed in soft ocean-colored tones with a living plant wall. Of course the entire restaurant has the glorious bay and golf course view, and window walls that open.

The outside area is still to be finished for outdoor dining.

Collin Ferreira, General Manager, took time from his busy schedule just days before they opened to sit down with me and share some of the details. Ferreira is a classically trained chef who spent ten years working for the US Navy as Navy MWR (morale, welfare, and recreation, commonly known as a Fun Boss) before stepping into his role at Feast & Fareway. His commitment is providing an excellent customer experience. As for the staff of over 50, you will see some new and some familiar smiling faces.

The food service is unfolding in stages. They are currently serving breakfast and lunch from 6am-2pm and have happy hour from 2-5pm daily. They will begin serving dinner nightly from 5-9pm on June 27. Eventually, Collin is looking forward to the restaurant hosting fun community events including some live music.

The menu creation was done with locally sourced ingredients and chef-driven scratch food in mind. The chef and management were also sensitive to pricing with contemporary plating of simple menu items. Fine dining without the fuss was a goal, and quality without traveling over the bridge.

With the remodel, there are now two bars, one with patio walk-up access and the spectacular bridge view. Which leads me to their drink menu which features a dozen beers on tap and 25 local and international wine selections along with golf named specialty cocktails like the Augusta Azalea, Doral Daiquiri, and Shinnecock Fizz to name a few.

My daughter and I celebrated me on Fathers Day with a meal at Feast & Fareway, and it was delicious. We opted for breakfast, she devouring the Lemon Raspberry pancakes ($10), a stack of three which were topped with macerated raspberries and lemon glaze. I managed a bite and they tasted like heaven. I chose the Croque Madame – ham and cheese sandwich on brioche bread with béchamel sauce, topped with a fried egg and served with house potatoes ($12). Perfection. My egg was cooked just as I asked, the serving size was perfect and the brioche was light and airy with a tad bit of sweetness. A perfect blend of flavors. The potatoes were just as I love them, homecooked without a bunch of extra add-ins.

The breakfast menu offers traditional American breakfast, avocado toast, omelets, Benedicts, pancakes, French toast, and three vegan options. If you prefer lunch, you can choose from soups, salads, sandwiches and burgers, or fish & chips, mac & cheese or Fareway flatbread. Happy Hour boasts drink and food specials. I can’t wait to try the truffle fries ($4) and chicken wings ($8). The daytime food menu prices range from $8-$16. The dinner entrees will be under $30 for items like steak, catch of the day and housemade pasta dishes. The restaurant is family-friendly with a children’s menu being developed and available soon. I was also happy to see they use eco-friendly to-go products. They offer a variety of gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan options. And if you want to work and eat, they have complimentary WiFi available.

City Manager Blair King and his wife Nancy were enjoying a Father’s Day breakfast at the same time as us. King told me this was their first time eating at the new restaurant. He had a specialty omelet and sampled the shrimp & grits while Nancy had a breakfast burrito. They both enjoyed their food and he was pleased with the ambiance, service, and improvement of the restaurant and bar. We were just two of the many filled tables enjoying a great new eatery in Coronado.
