Great Breakfasts With A Great View

Our granddaughter, my wife and I went to Schooner or Later for breakfast while on a drive from L.A. south on the PCH. It is not terribly obvious where to enter the establishment, but we finally found the hostess desk and registered. The place was very busy, but it only took about 20 minutes until... read more

Just flew in from NY, ate here for a late lunch, great scenery at the water. Ordered a drink with Champagne, wow $10 and it was huge!!! Better not be driving after that. Food was so-so. I had a salad with crab and shrimp. Shrimp was the little non tasty kind, the crab was better, salad was plan old salad.... More

Nice place for eating. We ate on the patio and I was glad I brought a light sweatshirt. Ordered eggs with bacon and the eggs came just the way I ordered them. I deducted a point for the cold bacon and the fruit cup which wasn't ripe. All else was very good. Waitress was efficient and refills came regular the... More

Saw this on Food Network's Triple D. So.... Be prepared to wait as others saw it too. Nice view from restaurant, waterfront dining. Food choices are diverse with breakfast selections being nothing short of amazing . Try any of the egg benedict dishes.

My husband and I decided to try lunch the other day at Schooner of Later. We previously had only enjoyed lunch. My husband order the patty melt and enjoyed it (he said he wished he had ordered one to go). I tried the chicken nachos. They were a little different but tasty. We both enjoyed our meals and I think... More

No reservations accepted. Waited an hour and a half for a table for a small group Saturday, after lunch peak. Mostly junk food aside from breakfast. Nothing special or tasty. Pretty good service at table.

Schooner or Later is a popular, busy place. We love their breakfasts, which are delicious, hot and reliably great. I've had their pancakes and many of their egg dishes, all satisfying and tasty with generous portions. There is always a wait so the best thing is to have one of their famous Bloody Marys, which are huge with more than... More

Considering the hour long wait (it can be worse), I'd have to say this place was NOT worth it. Sure, they have a great location, but the food is average (even greasy), and the service was very poor. Our large group's plates were delivered with so much finesse we thought they were going to break them. I know they're busy,... More
