Surprisingly charming

Stumbled upon this cafe, set amongst a rambling store that sells interesting indoor / outdoor garden furnishings and accessories. Food was good - aside from poorly cooked fries - but sitting outside under the well landscaped greenery and artifacts was quaint, cool and different.

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.

This is a wonderful spot, aesthetically speaking, to eat breakfast. The garden area is lovely. The food is just average, and rather overpriced. I had a bowl of granola, and there was about 1/2 cup of granola for about $9. My companion had an egg dish, and it had American cheese. Yuck! I would recommend this place if you want... More

our breakfast was delicious, even though it did take awhile to get our food. The outdoor garden setting is lovely. There is so much to look at, and the store is filled with unique items. A delightful place to dine outdoors.

Everything there is good and the atmosphere is awesome; it's all outside dining and although there are umbrellas, cold and rain make it a less attractive option. We go there every time we stay in LB!

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 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 worth the wait. The... More
