Beautiful setting

Quick food in a beautiful setting. This is perfect breakfast eating on a summer day. The food is not fancy but the setting makes up for it. Great way to start the day.

We were enticed by the atmosphere... Beautiful garden and fountains everywhere. Felt serene and peaceful. I ordered a Caesar salad with chicken but asked for vinagarette due to fish allergies. It came 25 minutes later with Caesar dressing. Probably one of the most lack luster salads I've ever experienced One other thing .... They only gave me vinegar no oil... More

Very fun, interesting place with lots to look at. They offered free ice tea and water (get it yourself) as you wait. Lots of dogs on the patio. It was fun and the food was pretty good. I'd return.

Looking for great food in Laguna Beach. There is very little to choose from. This antiques/curiosity shop just so happens to serve food. It was in walking distance of our hotel and we needed breakfast. One orders and has a seat in an outdoor garden setting......30 minutes later your food arrives.....somewhat hot. For $20pp you can have an average breakfast.... More

The food was average but everything inside the cafe and store was really cool and the ambience was so great for a morning cup of coffee or breakfast. I would absolutely return and probably eat what my husband had which was the German pancake.

Mrs & I stayed at the Tides Inn and saw Madison Square as we walked to downtown. It's located next to the old "Cottage Restaurant" (that's still closed & being renovated). Madison Square is a combination trinket store & cafe. Tables are outside in the midst of their interesting merchandise, so it gives you something to look at & talk... 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
