My wife and I love this place. It's a great little local place to enjoy breakfast. The building itself is a little dated, but the food more than makes up for it. Their cinnamon rolls are quite fantastic. And the prices for what you get are really a great deal. I really like the fact that you can substitue a... More

This is a very simple place which needs some building TLC. BUT, the place is TOTALLY worth it! They have breakfast and lunch, and it can get crowded, so go early! Portions are big and delicious. Their cinnamon rolls are a treat to share.

Paul's is a wonderful restaurant with extremely friendly service! The owner remembers all return customers and even their previous food orders...it's a great local hit!

We have gone to Paul's off and on for a number of years, primarily for breakfast. It went from a great place with great service and generous portions to a mediocre place with sketchy service. Recently went back with some friends and was pleased with the food and the service. I have never had a bad experience but if you... More

Paul's is only open for Breakfast and Lunch so we finally got in and it was Worth it! Try the french toast cinammon bun, that's right, they make french toast out of the cinammon bun. It is yummy!

This is a Mom & Pop restaurant that specializes in breakfast hearty fare. Lunch also available. Food tastes great, but not on your list of healthy eating experiences, unless you can resist the decadent options and choose oatmeal and fruit instead. Decor is aging and ready for a re-do, but service is still friendly and fast.

Sorry, our first and last visit to this emporium. Recommended by a friend, we went for brunch on a Saturday. Nice location, nice surroundings, etc. Ordered an omelette with pancakes--omelette came out lukewarm, and not looking like an omelette at all--sent it back to reheat, and it came back the same way, even colder. Pancakes were scorched on one side,... More

I have eaten there for years. Food is always excellent. You cannot get a bad Mel. It is exactly what it says it is. Basic American cuisine for breakfast and lunch. Service is terrific.

On this Sunday morning, we had an early breakfast at Paul's Pantry. This is a favorite among many people in the Mission Viejo vicinity. The portions there are very generous and can easily be shared with someone. We had french toast and scrambled eggs, along with bacon. The food was good, but I wasn't completely satisfied with the quality. I... More

What is over easy, over hard, and the hardest egg dish of all scrambled ???. The cooks don't have a clue. In the past I really liked going to Paul's for a great breakfast. New kitchen manager?? What happened to a really great breakfast HOUSE???
