Was visiting and Alta was recommended for brunch. Early Sunday brunch, wait listed 40 min. Hostess was rude. Very snotty... I know it's NP but there were lots of people and she was discriminating. I finally was seated after a bit of hesitation as I had indicated for 2 and my friend canceled. She said she would have to sit... More

Looking for a hidden spot to have coffee that isn't like any other place on the planet today? Well Alta my be just your cup of coffee. How its funky decor and servers/characters/personalities have survived in a the middle of expensive pretentious Cannery Village Newport Beach OC, is grounds for a Harvard marketing study at least. Or is it possible... More

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
