Great place for hearty breakfast

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

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.
