The White House is a Laguna institution, having been here forever. The last few times I've been here, however, have been disappointing. Service is still top notch but the food is merely expensive.

It's been many years since I have been to the White House and the quality of the food seems to have suffered. I was there for breakfast which was average, at best, not the quality I have experienced for their dinner and lunch selections. Eggs Florentine was made with an untoasted muffin and frozen, chopped spinach. Now I can excuse... More

I have no complaints on my burger with fries. Seating was prompt. The patio was full but the inside area was fine. Service was prompt & courteous.

If you breakfast before 10am this is a bargain. Delicious pancakes, bacon and syrup - the full works. Okaaay service.

White House is good, not great. They have an awesome early dinner special if you are in the mood for an early dinner. For some reason the restaurant just feels dirty to me. It's not going to ever be my first choice, but the food is decent.

After a jog on the beach decided to hit WH for Breakfast. Had waffles with fresh strawberries and cream. It was amazing and the the coffee was freshly brewed. We sat outside and weather was great. I really recommend WH they have a big menu and Brfst is served till 4 pm.

I've eaten here for lunch and dinner and it was okay, but we happened to have breakfast here this time around and the breakfast was excellent. Large fluffy omelets, good bacon. A pleasant surprise

I don't normally care to give a bad review, but if its deserving, what other choice is there? We started with an appetizer of "salt & pepper" calamari, and we were then going to order two entrees. Don't know why they called it "salt & pepper" - did not taste that at all. And the calamari was so bad and... More
