They have a wonderful breakfast and coffee menu. Their pastry is limited but fresh and delicious. Just a note for the people who are visiting this place for the first time, place your order at the counter first, and take your little number holder with you to your table; they will bring your food to your table when ready. They... More

The day we were there the service was unbelievable and hard to believe that just two girls could handle everything out front, including making you any kind of coffee you wanted. We only ate there for breakfast but there was so much food, we were not hungry again until Dinner. Very large portions and a great variety, hard to decide... More

Friendly staff, great breakfast options, well priced and speedy service. A popular choice for locals so seating can be a premium at certain times.

My husband and I love going out to breakfast on Sunday mornings, and Cafe Heidelberg is our favorite Laguna spot. Best bets are the veggie croissant, oatmeal, fresh-squeezed orange juice and banana nut muffins. The patio is open year-round and is a great place to enjoy fresh air, people watch and read the Sunday paper. The beach is just a... More

Great variety of breakfast dishes served all day. The Heidelberg is extremely good and my personal choice. A good variety of sandwiches with fresh bread!

Beautiful spot, great coffee and breakfast staples a cut above a normal diner. Look out for the home made jam and bread. My toast was delivered for free by the charming service.

On our last morning in Laguna, we needed a little more to eat before our flight, so we visited Heidelberg. The food was great, and so was the fresh-squeezed orange juice. I had the cheese croissant, and my husband had the bacon and egg croissant. While the price was a little higher than the Penguin Cafe, the food was more... More

I agree with one of the other reviewers about the "soup nazi" service, but I've also had pretty friendly service there occasionally. The prices are definitely excessive - we've come in for breakfast and had a tab close to $40 for food and drinks for two people - that would be justified in a sit-down place, but it's way over...

Excellent breakfasts served all day! Can't comment on the lunch menu but why would anyone want lunch when you've found a place that will serve you a great breakfast instead? Outdoor seating, nice atmosphere, service akin to the soup Nazi from Seinfeld but the food is worth the effort and as long as you behave and follow the rules you... More

Close to some of Laguna's most beautful beaches. Have a coffee and pastry then cross the street and experience some of the best of Laguna Beach.
