We were looking for a place to eat outside since it was December and the weather was beautiful in Laguna Beach! Since we are from the mid-west it is just nice to have such perfect weather to dine outdoors. Just walked around looking for a good spot and this was right on the South Coast Highway near the arts district.... More

Locals have been eating at the White House for decades. I went there as a kid with my grandparents and i have been taking my kids there for a very long time for one simple reason; the food is always good and you can depend on it no matter how busy they are.

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.

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.

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
