A true local spot

It's hidden away on one of Cannery Village's backstreets and is a true local favorite. My brother got coffee here every day of high school and I go whenever I'm home. The coffee is excellent and not exorbitantly priced, they bake their pastries in-house and the overall atmosphere is very much... read more

Unfortunately we were told 10 minute wait that turned into an hour. Food was good but not "that good."

Love the outdoor dining and friendly staff! Met my daughter and my granddogs here for breakfast and what a delight. I arrived early and they went ahead and seated me. I enjoyed a flavored cafe latte' as I waited. I don't like coffee at too many places but this was very enjoyable. Our server was friendly and prompt and knew... More

We stopped in Alta several mornings while staying in Newport Beach. The berry scone was delicious as was the coffee. Nice quaint place to have breakfast.

The outdoor patio is so charming and inviting I felt like I could just hang out there all afternoon! The coffee and food both were excellent, filling but not too heavy so just perfect! Our server was very friendly and attentive and she never made us feel rushed despite the large wait forming as it got later into the morning.... More

We found Alta by accident as one Sunday we were looking for parking. Went in and the food and coffee blew us away. We ended up visiting 3 times whilst we were in LA - the avocado and BLT is to die for and am trying to recreate it at home. Great selection of coffee and cake - different things... More

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
