Go for the Granola

My wife and I stopped by here for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Quite busy, which I suppose isn't to be unexpected as it's the only thing open at The LAB on Sunday mornings. I had the Maya coffee, which was very good, and their granola, which was excellent. The granola comes with yogurt and... read more

We like the location and friendly service. The breakfast burrito was really good. I didn't care for the regular coffee, but the coffee frances was really good.

We stumbled across a great little spot while we were exploring the Artists' Village in Costa Mesa. The Gypsy Den had a ton of character with its casual flowing scarves used as draperies and walls cluttered with Persian rugs and art. The food was good too. We were there for breakfast. We liked the vegetarian options including a burrito that... More

I'm not sure if this place is a coffee shop that serves food, or is a real restaurant. The outdoor seating and menu make it lok like a restaurant, but if you step inside, it looks more like a coffee shop. So, I'm thinking it's a local hangout for the folks who work at The Lab, and their customers. Not... More

Most recently I met a former coworker of mine to catch up on life’s goings-on. We met for late lunch on a Tuesday specifically to avoid the weekday “lunch rush” (more on that below) and spent a relaxing two hours outside chatting and enjoying good food. Gypsy Den is conducive to both. This restaurant bills itself as “neighborhood coffee house,... More

I really enjoy this place! It tends to be my go to spot for cram seshes when finals are nearing. There have fantastic coffee selections and bottomless mimosas on the weekends! What more could a person want! The food is good, a bit pricey but worth the unique environment. I love the patio space as well. Overall, I'd say the... More

I love everything on the menu. The soup of the day is great. The fresh breads and baked items are amazing (not to mention the day old basket with discounted baked goods). I love the tuna melt or the waldorf chicken salad sandwich! I enjoy the outdoor or indoor seating and i never grow tired of the art on the... More

It is getting cold and it is time for the best Bean CHili bowl around. Vegetarian and fresh and delicious on a cold day especially with fresh corn bread

Good, casual dining. It's a perfect place to eat if you are too tired to get "dressed up" for a more formal dinner. The people watching is fun, and the Anti-Mall is a nice alternative to conventional Orange County.
