During a recent stay in sunny, seaside San Clemente, we were introduced to a lovely little cafe along Avenida Del Mar, aptly named Cafe Mimosa. It was a real find! We bookended our week in SC with two stops at this relatively small brunch, lunch and dinner stop. Limited indoor and outdoor on the porch seating is available. Sorry, no... More

This is a gem of a restaurant in our seaside town . The brunch and lunch menu offers a wide selection of wonderful dishes that will delight anyone. The portions are large and very satisfying. They are proud of their prices, but that is easily accepted when you taste the high quality ingredients prepared in expert French technique. Highly recommend... More

Excellent food, service and ambiance. Price was reasonable, too. Recommend you try it. You will not be disappointed. We are from Ashland, Oregon, home of a kazillion excellent little boutique cafes. This one compares with the best.

Met my client here and it is a cute little restaurant- with outdoor patio. Noticed lots of groups of women. The lunch was great- sandwich and soup- delicious. I would recommend for a quick, light lunch.

Took the better half and had brunch and some drinks. Foods good drinks are better. Fun for a group of 4 but 6 is to much. Can get really busy but the staff is always trying to fix that. Go and try it.

We live in San clemente and this is our favorite restaurant after Nick's. They have really good unusual iced tea that they brew at the table and you pour on ice when it's ready. The Raspberry is delicious. All of the portions are large, so be prepared to split them. Not alot of seating room, so sometimes you have to... More

The service is great and the food is exceptional. The menu is small but everything on it is great. Mostly outside dinning on the far end of the shopping street of Del Mar.

Went here after driving up the coast from San Diego, walked around town, noticed the crowd, had to go in. It's not big so there is a wait, but the food was great. Had the Fresh made chorizo and eggs and black coffee which hit the spot. The Wife had the florentine benedict which hit all the right notes for... More
