I think that this place is more about nostalgia than food or value. Prices are very high and the food, frankly, is just average. I will not return.

The kids like it. Last time it was $18 for three shakes. They were good but I thought that was a bit pricey for milk and a straw.

I was nice and relaxing (and exactly what we needed after seeing the doctored for a chemo consult. It's kinda hard to explain but my cousin who is having a hard time eating, ate her burger, fries and a sundae. I... More

What an amazing view while you eat your burger or have your morning coffee. We like to walk here in the morning and give ourselves a little treat.

I will not drive up Pacific Coast Highway again without stopping for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack with this breathtaking view! Casual, romantic, fun.

Located just outside of Laguna Beach (to the north) is an un-assuming beach hut that houses the "Shake Shack". We had heard of this for a long time, so when we were heading by, we stopped in. Go for the shakes, but skip the food, which is quite average and not very good. That would not stop me from going,... More

Stopped by the Shake Shake last night for a shake and sunset! Tough to get parking, you may have to wait, but it is worth it. Didn't eat the main food, but it looks good! My son had a shake, and my husband the vanilla soft serve. I had tastes of both. To sit outside and overlook Crystal Cove and... More

I can't tell you how many times I've come here, but it's a lot. Where else can you get great burgers, sandwiches, fries and shakes and eat the food on either their very small patio or take down to Crystal Cove State Beach (if it's crowded, which it usually is, go for take-out). The only bad part about the shake... More

This is a great little spot right off Pacific Coast Hwy and has been around along time. We just starting stopping for the view and coffee. For the first time ordered a breakfast, cinnamon toast combo. Very good, generous and delicious. Will be back for the view and to try something else. Not alot of parking though. Thanks for keeping...

Great burgers and shakes with ample tables to accommodate the 15 or so parking spots. Best to eat here at off peak hours due to parking. Excellent early breakfast for early riser beachcombers. No indoor seating!
