Fun for Dog Lovers

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... read 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.

Went here for breakfast. The food wasnt very good, the prices were high (although that should be and is expected in Laguna) and I wasnt a fan of the "get your own silverware water napkins" thing they had going on. Try somewhere else.

My daughter and I love this cafe and the adorable shop attached to it. The north Laguna location is close to the art museum and Heisler Park, both of which are must see's while in town.

We have been here several times before but the food quality has gone through the floor. Turkey sandwich had no flavor, fries were dry AND soggy ! And pear salad had about 1/6 of an I ripe pear, a tiny scattering of nuts over a pile of wilted lettuce. The chicken tasted only of charcoal - & exactly like the... More

Firstly one should write a review after a cooling period to be accurate and without emotion. 4 days after having a breakfast on a Sunday with the wife on a date, I expected a great meal. I am still incredulous how an operation can be so lax. Firstly a $35 breakfast for two is high (they charged me for toast... More

I have a monthly breakfast at Madison with a dear friend. We select this restaurant because of the setting which is all outside seating and the delicious food. The restaurant is an old 'Laguna Charmer' house that has been turned into a shop and restaurant. So many of the restaurants in Laguna Beach neglect to keep the old work charm... More
