Wont' Go Back

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

Flavor abounds and will fill you up for the day. Doesn't get any better than this. The gravy is out of sight and the portions large. Hash browns are crisp and the eggs perfect to order.

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.
