Jamaica look alike.

What an amazing little place. Most excellent view - we saw a whale while we were enjoying a chocolate malt. There is no better way to spend the afternoon. Parking is tight so consider parking at the mall and walking to this amazing little spot. Service was good and workers were very friendly!

What a great find we stumbled across on our beach adventure!! Peanut Butter shake is to die for! Great variety on the menu, but a tad bit pricey. We had an amazing lunch with great atmosphere!

These guys have some great food, albeit somewhat pricey. Some of our party were vegetarian, and the choices were very limited. Also, no sugar free ice cream, so the diabetics are out of luck. :(

You know how you pay a lot for a thick milkshake and then you can't get it through the straw?!# Not a problem here! They have the best milkshake straws ever! Nice and thick and sturdy AND they give you a spoon too! Nice touch. I even thought about keeping the straw in the car for future use. It was... More

Had a great breakfast. Sat outside and whale watched while eating. Not fancy but good food and not overpriced.

We didn't have time to wait for a table in Laguna Beach before we headed inland for a family visit so we stopped at the Shake Shake. We were pleased with the healthy choices for lunch and delighted by the outside seating with a view of the pacific. We would definitely stop here again.

A Must Stop! Get a date shake. It is yummy! This place is a landmark on the PCH. Everyone knows the Shake Shack. Limited parking. Or walk from Crystal Cove.
