This was a horrible experience. The staff were rude and the food was terrible. I liked the location close to the beach and our hotel but disliked everything that we ordered, the high prices and rude staff.

I had the Pesto and Eggs and it was excellent. Everything on the menu looked great. They have a very nice outside area to sit outside and enjoy the sun while you eat. Highly recommend. It is right mix of low key, good service, great vibe and excellent food.

Huge portion had to split it with my hubby. Made fresh on order! Outside that pretty average coffee cafe with outdoor and indoor seating.

We stopped here several days while staying at a hotel across the street. Breakfast was great and the cookies and snacks were delicious.

We ate here a few times during our stay at Dana Point. It was a great spot for lunch after the beach. The café is lovely bright, clean & modern. As others have already said the salads & sandwiches are excellent. Service was good also.

The fresh carved turkey sandwich was excellent. Generous amount of turkey, crisp greens and a nice little quinoa salad to go with it.

Very fresh, very special. Great pastries, coffee, wraps. Not a place you'd want to miss! A short walk from the Ritz-Carlton!

Amazing coffees and espresso... Great breakfast wraps or lunch selections. Ingredients make the difference- free range chicken & organic greens. Nice cafe setting with outdoor seating. It you like to start your day with a good coffee and reasonably priced yet wonderful breakfast, don't miss this!
