Best breakfast I've had in a long time

We did experience a little sticker shock when ordering, but were very happy with the food. Fresh squeezed OJ, fresh fruit and generous portions. I had Eggs Benedict and I don't believe that I have ever had a slice of Canadian Bacon that thick. It took a while to get our food but it was definitely... read more

Soothing garden setting is just the beginning; the food is basically salads and sandwiches and the like...but it's all terrifically tasty. Especially don't miss what will be perhaps one of the best grilled cheese s'wiches you've ever had. Plus the selection of whimsical merchandise on hand for outside and inside da home is pretty tempting, too. Don: you'd like it!

We were walking around Laguna trying to find a dog-friendly spot to sit and have some lunch. We were extremely pleased when we stumbled upon this place. Not only did they have some cool things to look at (and purchase as well, because it is a fabulous store) but the food was fantastic. We shared the chicken and mushroom sandwich... More

We stopped here on Wednesday morning. The food was great and it was very relaxing to sit out in the garden amid all of the chimes, statues and art. The shop is great and there were a million and one things I wanted to buy but had no room for. Worth the stop.

Came here with my wife for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Extremely busy but found a table easily enough and the breakfast was fabulous albeit rather expensive. The setting is what sets this place apart and what a setting. The tables are set up amongst a garden that has has a variety of garden hardware for sales such as chimes... More

I loved this place! I'm an avid gardener and love anything to do with gardening and outdoor fountains, windchimes, etc. A fairly limited menu but my husband was more than happy with his Eggs Benedict and I enjoyed my Eggs Ranchero (fairly large servings of food). Maybe it's because I live in a climate that doesn't enjoy year long summer... More

It isn't enough to say this place is dog friendly. Dogs are not only allowed outside, but also inside the shop area. The owner explained that they make sure all the water is safe for dogs to drink and there are fountains everywhere! The owner also took special care with my timid dog to make sure she was comfortable and... More

We loved this enchaning setting for breakfast. The gift shop and nursury was brimming with creative displays and unique offerings. Outside, the water fountains bubbled, birds chirped and flowers blazed with blooms. The food was decent, nothing special. The ambiance was delightful. If you are a doggy person, this is your place. So many customers had their pooches laying at... More

We had lunch at Madison Square before leaving for San Diego. The food was OK and service was quick. Lots of knick knacks to look at while you wait for your food and that might be good if you have kids but was a bit much for my taste.
