Friendly and welcoming. Tons of lovely stuff you can buy to decorate your garden. Take your puppies, they're very welcome. In fact John Madison, the owner, circulates chatting to people and dogs alike. He also packs treats, so he's super popular with the 4-legged guests. Nice. Recommended.

Dog friendly breakfast and lunch restaurant. This place has a very comfortable atmosphere and similar to Urth you order at the counter and they bring it to you. About mid-range pricing.

This is a delightful coffee shop, restaurant and garden on Pacific Coast Highway. The venue had hundreds of items that are unique and add to the dining adventure. There were many people there for just coffee and a few for a full breakfast. We enjoyed the scenery and coffee.

This is our favorite place in Laguna Beach (where we are locals). The owner Jon is amazing and always gives the kids toys and the dogs biscuits. The food is great and the atmosphere makes you want to relax and stay a long time. This is as good as it gets! :-)

Love this shabby-chic environment with seating in the garden in the back of the store which used to be a house. You order food at the front of the store,and they bring it to you in the garden. There is no inside seating. The store has very nice bric a brac, soaps and ornamental items. Outside, they have an assortment... More

Best grilled cheese sandwich I have ever eaten. Order up front in the store area then go out back to the enchanted garden to eat. Great place to linger over coffee with friends

I love the Madison. The food is great--only breakfast and lunch available usually. I love sitting in the garden behind it. John Madison is often there and has treats for children and dogs. I love all the fountains and things to see as well.

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.
