Wonderful Neighborhood Find

Quaint little place with really good food and service. If you want a fresh breakfast with good portions this place is for you. Much better than any of the local chains!!!

Paul's Pantry is a local's favorite! This gem has the best breakfast you in Orange County. Portions are large, food is excellent, service is good, and the price is inexpensive.

Was recommended to me, should have not listened. It's OK at best. When the best part of the meal is toast, well you know the rest.

We went here for breakfast today and it was very good . Plenty of servers meant service was snappy and my chilli cheese omelette Was nice everybody else seemed to enjoy their ample breakfast and our grandson tackled the monstrous. Cinnamon roll that comes with most meals. The prices were fine and the place was crowded but still friendly and... More

My breakfast eggs and bacon were over cooked.. The service was bad. The waitress totally ignored me, didn't even offer more coffee. The place was dirty and needs painting.

I don't often eat a hearty breakfast (either not enough time or afraid of the calories) - but when I do there is only one place that I go - Paul's Pantry in Mission Viejo. First off - the food is good, uncomplicated, and authentic (no fake anything). Second - it is hot off the grill, and generously portioned. Third... More

The facility gives you the feeling of a small town cafe. They have both inside and outside seating. It is close to the freeway so makes it easy to get to. What is really great are the cinnamon rolls. EXCELLENT! We enjoyed a delicious breakfast with omelets, eggs, hash, fruit... It was great. Definitly will return.

I love Paul's for breakfast. We always sit on the patio. It's nothing fancy, but the food is always good and the service is friendly and efficient. The server staff have all been there for forever and know how to keep things moving, no matter now busy it is. The giant cinnamon rolls are a Must Have, but plan on... More

Paul's is a very good, simple breakfast spot. They serve all of the traditional breakfast dishes and make excellent omlettes. They also are very supportive of the Mission Viejo community in a variety of ways. Much better than Dennys' etc. and the prices are very reasonable. They are just a bit hard to find as they are just off the... More

Paul's Pantry is our go-to breakfast place. My wife and I took our son, his wife and their 4 year old daughter for breakfast. I had the Paul's pan san which I was able to give my granddaughter the pancakes. The other 3 adults all had a big breakfast as well. You get plenty of food for a decent price.... More
