Most travelers fly by San Clemente on the I-5 freeway - it's just another nice beach area, right? Well, if one wants a REALLY good meal for a reasonable price for breakfast or lunch, find your way to the train station there and sit down at The Beach Garden Cafe! Parking can be challenging on weekends - OK, maybe everyday... More

In San Clemente for a wedding this weekend and found this little gem for breakfast. It's run by a husband and wife team that are ever so friendly and the service is top notch. It's obviously a huge hit with locals and there was a wait for a table but they serve you coffee while you're waiting! The food was... More

Went here for lunch with a friend. We each had a hamburger and a cup of their clam chowder. The food was ordinary at best. Nothing special at all. Probably won't return.

This quaint little place has the best service,friendly staff,and the owner works there and is the friendly hostess. If you go there more than twice they remember you and your name too. Great food with good portions,they always came around to see if we needed something. Great location right across pier.

Who knew such a cool place was in San Clemente with a great view AND great prices. The food was fantastic! We will definitely be back. Right across the street from the pier and right by the Amtrak stop. It will be easy to take the train from San Diego!!!

This is a "wow" located right across from the beach. They are open for breakfast and lunch and the price can't be beat. The staff is great and the food is well-priced along with being very good and plentiful.

Came to San Clemente for a wedding. My wife and I had lunch here and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I had the fish and chips and my wife had their BLT. My Cod was obviously freshly battered and fried to a delicious golden brown. The chips were typical frozen french fries but the fish was plentiful and worth the meal.... More
