Great Little Breakfast Spot

Madison Square is a combination trinket store & cafe. Tables are outside in the midst of their interesting merchandise, so it... read more

We visited here twice during our stay at an AirBnB in the neighborhood. The breakfast food and coffee were delicious, staff friendly and welcoming, and the atmosphere is relaxing and beautiful. Gorgeous garden and trees intermixed with fun garden accessories, sculptures and artwork. I wish I could come back everyday! Convenient to Many of the hotels in the North PCH... More

We ate breakfast here while in Laguna beach. It was right up the street from Laguna beach house. Food was great and cheap for breakfast. The seating area was surrounded by gardens and garden ornaments, which was quite nice and serene. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We ate the famous egg sandwich and the rancheros dish. Both were... More

We had breakfast here every morning. Coffee was hot and good, and plenty of it. Tried most every breakfast option. All were very good. Apple pancakes a favorite as well as the french toast.

I really enjoyed sitting in the garden here and having breakfast. Casual relaxing atmosphere even whimsical! Both my Aunt and I liked our meals and she is very picky so kudos to Madison Square.

I love this place, the owner is amazingly nice and has made an institution in laguna. The place is filled with unique artifacts and gifts from around the world and you can eat inside or outside surrounded by these gardening and unique house gifts you can buy. Your dog is welcome and you can enter from PCH or the back... More

My Husband and I had breakfast here when visiting Laguna and it was fantastic!!! The surroundings are lovely to sit and eat in with some really interesting things to buy. We both had the cinnamon swirl french toast and it was amazing!! We were sad the next day as it was closed on Tuesday so had to have breakfast elsewhere.... More

This is a charming little place, that quickly won us over. As you dine, or have your breakfast you are surrounded by outdoor art, which they also sell. The food was very good, and we all left full and satisfied. We even bought one of their bronze mobiles.
