Great breakfast!

Nice cozy restaurant, with good selection of homemade options, great coffee selection! Expect a wait w/o reservations. This place gets busy quick...

Happening cafe with really good food. Popular with the locals. There is a surfing theme to the decor. The cafe is clean and attractive. A very busy place.

Enjoyed this place for breakfast. Large portions and so yummy. Omelet was great and hash browns were the best. My friend had a croissant breakfast sandwich which she said was great as well. Close to shops to walk it all off!

Antoine's is a place where the locals go for consistently good food with a very friendly staff. This is a favorite of ours.

This is a great place for brunch. Be prepared to wait for awhile, but it is worth the wait. The food and coffee drinks are among the bet in town. The food has a french flair and always delicious.

Reasonably priced, good food. Close to down town and shopping. Walk to pier is possible but would be long and steep coming back up the hill. Good service.

The breakfast burrito was excellent and the service fine. The dining room is small and noisy. One could consider this an upscale diner based upon the food. Two servings of the breakfast potatoes were burned on the outside and raw on the inside. Evidently cooked on a too high setting. This was corrected once pointed out to the server.

Over the years we have made it a tradition to have brunch at Antoine's with our family. Now we have moved to San Clemente, and one of the joys is knowing that we can frequent Antoine's Cafe for a never fail excellent brunch. Great choices, served with smiles and always a pleasure. We have eaten there a few times over... More
