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!

Small independent coffee place which serves great coffee and breakfast. We usually have the breakfast burritos, the portions are good but not too much. The granola and fruits servings are great too.

I love this place, only a few blocks from my house! They have great coffee and it is such a cute place for a bite to eat and the casual solo laptop coffee session. Surprisingly, I love their creme brûlée! A nice quaint place in the hustle and bustle of the peninsula!

I love the deserts here. The double chocolate cake and the blue berry cobbler are superb! Such a chill vibe and a great place to drink some coffee. Alta is the jam!

I walk here frequently from my house to run in and get an iced chai. The atmosphere is not really my thing but they make great coffee and the place is always packed. They do a decent breakfast burrito too!

Absolutely great coffee and food. Homemade bread, just like Mom used to make. Excellent variety of breakfast entrees. Love the waffle, eggs benedict, granola, omelets ... and coffee, wow!!! Lots of varieties of the world's finest coffees.
