Good breakfast in Dana Point

RJ's is a good choice for breakfast or lunch. Walking distance from hotels near DP Harbor or short drive. Can be a bit of a wait because it is a small place, popular with locals. Good variety of traditioal breakfast plates, omelettes and pancakes. Staff is friendly and food is good.

Voted best breakfast in Dana Point 6 years running. Famous for their home made cinnamon rolls.. Great omelets and the pancakes are to die for.

Very good breakfasts. Servings are huge and prices are reasonable. Best pancakes in Dana Point and beyond. Wait times can be long. Wait staff and owner friendly even when very busy, especially once they know you.

I love their hawaiian fusion food as you can't find them anywhere else. Everything looks and taste fresh and healthy. Service is excellent. Worth waiting in line. Best find ever.
