Good place for the weekend

this is right down in Dana Point Harbor and the food and coffee are excellent. Most go to if your in the Dana Point Harbor and want high quality quick breakfast or lunch with good scenery.

I can't say enough good things about this place; great food, fun vibe, amazing people watching and top notch coffee and smoothies. The only negative is that it is so popular with the locals, it is sometimes hard to get a table.

My husband and I recently stopped by for breakfast while vacationing at the Ritz. The avacado bagel was delicious. This is a pet friendly environment, so this is a great place for dog lovers. Seating is a bit challenging so prepare to wait for a table.

The coffee on our trip to the U.S. has generally been pretty poor but this is definitely the exception. Even if the ice cream wad lurid in colour, the coffee tasted like real coffee. The place has a real buzz in the morning

The bagels were great--but my fav were the Acai & Pitaya bowls....oh so yummy! Super fresh and light on the belly!;) I enjoyed the fresh pressed juices, and the wheat grass shots! the coffee was great! Little pups were all over with their owners, nice local feel!

Came here the first time after brunch nearby. Stop by for coffee (it was so so) and ice cream. Their ice cream seems to be very popular because ... i guess its Sunday, its summer, plus it is from Hawaii as it has a lot of hawaiian named flavor.

There is a huge selection of bagels to choose from and you need a bit of time to study the menu thoroughly because there is a lot of choice. You order, get a buzzer and sit outside in front of the marina and enjoy the view while you wait. The wait was slightly longer than expected but well worth it.
