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.

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!!!

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
