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

My wife and I opted to have breakfast out this u morning. I remembered how delightful this place was. I ate french toast and fresh fruit. My mate had eggs and bacon. The bacon was nice and crispy. I enjoyed the darker coffee. Bathrooms are located in the rear outside. You don't follow the yellow brick road but you follow... More

Antoine s has a great breakfast menu. We had vegetarian omelets that were very tasty. The hash browns were real good and the coffee excellent. I would recommend the coffee here at any time. They have a great take out for coffee in the morning

If you are looking for a great place for a late breakfast, this is the place to go. They have the best eggs Benedict made with ham in stead of Canadian bacon. They have a great selection of coffees daily. If you have room, they also make delicious crepes. For old television buffs, they have two tvs which show vintage... More

This is your spot for excellent breakfast's with preparation second only to very expensive eateries. Ambience is good, tad noisy and always packed. Not that many tables, and actually sitting outside is often better. Whether you like pancakes or eggs Benedict, hash browns are killer, and their selection of tea is great. Top spot in SC for sure.

Great breakfast, good coffee. Get there early but it is worth the wait. If the weather is good you can sit outside. Not good for large parties. Try Cafe Mimosa (related restaurant) on Del Mar for large parties. They have great food also.

Met some friends for breakfast. I ordered their crepe with strawberries and blue berries, whip cream on the side and a cup of hot Mocah! This carried me me through the day! A very happy person I might add. It is a great place to grab a bite before hitting all the boutiques on Del Mar st. Or driving to... More

We went here for breakfast on Sunday morning and as usual it was crowded but the wait was just a few minutes so we stayed. The food and service were good and things happened at a fast pace. This place takes good care of its customers and I can't see people not enjoying the place unless you have a headache... More

What better way to start the day than breakfast at Antoine's. Came here on recommendation and from the friendly welcome to the delicious food and coffee, it was a treat. Genuinely friendly wait staff and barista. Lots of locals coming in. Tables outside were full but loved the atmosphere inside.

This place is a real treat. Breakfast is my favourite restaurant meal so I regard myself as a serious critic. Antoine's was impressive from start to finish. Excellent atmosphere, super friendly and capable service and, best of all really good food. Some might say a tad expensive but I say you get what you pay for
