Great breakfast and lunch foods(sort of a limited menu, but all tasty) and I wish they could be open for dinner. Order at the founder, get a number and they will find you! Fido and friends are VERY welcome and the owner John is a great guy!

This place is fun to shop in. Tons of interesting items spread all around the property. Would go back to shop. The food was disappointing. First off, it's not full service, so you order, pay, then seat yourself. I had the veggie frittata. It was tasty, but it was $13.00 and didn't come with anything. No fruit, no potatoes, no... More

Eclectic garden/antiques store with fantastic food. We had breakfast and then went back for a to-go lunch to take to the beach. Lots of cool yard art that we'd have purchased if we lived in SoCal.

While the food pretty good albeit a tad lukewarm, we found the attitude towards customers really below standard; just short of being rude and I'm not talking about the nice guys who were cooking the food, this was from the owner/manager. We weren't regulars but that shouldn't matter, every customer should be treated with the same respect. Wouldn't bother going... More

Beautiful garden setting, like eating in someone's backyard. Great food, staff and owner Jon. Take the pooch, they will get a treat from Jon.

Fun place for it is also an outdoor garden store. You can only eat outdoors and you submit your order at the counter and they deliver to your table. Please suggested we go after we discovered this place during a walk. Fun and good good food.

Honestly, the $12.95 Cinnamon Swirl French Toast was delicious and the outdoors garden setting was quite unique, as described by others. During our breakfast we were able to pet a beautiful white ferret and witnessed a rather loud 3 dog fight (the owners quickly handled). The bad part of our experience at Madison Square was the terrible service. When our... More

If you are looking for something different in a Resturant with good food, try Madison Square. It's a Resturant in a store filled with yard art, fountains, and objects to put in your yard and home. The owner is a active part of the experience and passed out Halloween gag gifts. You order at the counter and your food is... More

in this restaurant you order and get a number and find a seat and your food is brought to you, but all around you everything that you see is for sale. It's an eclectic, artsy, typically Laguna restaurant, a great place to have breakfast.
