Meet friends here week after week and are never disapointed! Sometimes we have to wait for a table but it's always worth it. Very accommodating on the menu, great coffees and lots of breakfast choices. Lunch is also great. Can't visit San Clemente without going to Antoines!

This is our favorite breakfast place in San Clemente. The breakfast crepes are great, as is the French Toast.

This is a small restaurant on a busy thoroughfare in the heart of San Clemente. The food is above average, always freshly prepared & tasty. The coffee is fresh and offers lattes as well. The inside is smallish, with outside table service. Antoine's is a locals favorite place. Great people watching from outside.

Had a delicious breakfast out on their "patio"... right on the main street through town (Camino Real), but fun to be outside. Service was friendly & prompt. Menu looks really good - will be back again to try more!

Visitors and locals love this little cafe! Weekend mornings there is a slight wait, but have a coffee outside in the sun while you wait. Food is great, service too and the ambiance just fine. It's a local breakfast place that's clean, friendly and good! Fantastic salads for lunch too!

Antoine's Cafe is somewhat like an east coast diner, not in appearance but in the way the food is prepared and how it is organized. Wait for a table. Couples and family's waiting also. See an opening go for it. Seating available both inside and outside. Good portions, lots of coffee choices and refills. Extensive breakfast menu lots of food... More
