Country Kitchen is a solid place to stop for something to eat on your drive up to Malibu, especially if you’re trying to convince people (and yourself) that you’re actually a local. And if that’s your aim, arrive barefoot in a wetsuit, order the breakfast burrito (with bacon, add avocado) and a coffee, and grab one of the handful of seats in the parking lot. Now to start saving for that trailer in Paradise Cove.
