I love this place, I've been coming here for years. Every summer when my family visited Newport Beach and we would ride our bikes here and enjoy a cup of coffee and awesome scone. If you are in the area this place is a must.

I always stop in at Alta on visits to Newport Beach. It's the perfect spot for coffee and breakfast, tucked away on a side street on the peninsula. The service is always very friendly, the coffee is well-prepared, and the food is delicious. The baked goods are all high quality, but my personal favorite is the huevos con frijoles. Everything...

This was one of my favorite spots when I lived in California. This is a real deal coffee house, with an authentic feel and no corporate influence. The pastries are good and the food is excellent. I really didn't get specialty drinks, but the coffee was very good.If you're looking for something under the radar, definitely check it out!

Fun little place. We got our coffee and pastries to go and enjoy on Lido Isle, but this is a small and charming place with a full breakfast menu. When I say small, I mean tiny, but super cute and fun and very un-chain like. Definitely one of those places you will remember! Great coffee!

If you're into coffee houses, and you wouldn't be reading this if you weren't, you'll probably love this little spot. Starbuck's this is not! One of a kind, local color. Really tasty casual food and sandwiches, and of course, good coffee! Tucked away on a quiet side street out of the vortex that Newport Boulevard can be. You just want... More

Newport Beach is just a bit tough to take with all the glitz and plastic surgery. Alta reminds me of places in Marin back in the '60's. Kind of funky with lots of wood and art. I keep expecting a folk singer, with a head band and flowers in his/her hair in the corner. Oh, did I mention the breakfasts... More

The coffee was really good and the food was amazing. I had the toffee coffee which was as good as it was pretty. They have vegetarian alternatives and the service is great.

If you don't mind waiting in a line for breakfast Alta is extremely good. If you do mind waiting then you can call in your order for pick up. The surfer burrito is my favorite along with the spiced ice chai. They also have several different coffee's brewed daily along with hand pulled espresso shots!
