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

They need a better beer selection. Ice tea had to do. Clam chowder was great. A nice walk from state beach ground. We will visit again.

Love their breakfasts... had a great sandwich at lunch too (plenty big enough to split with a friend). Fun to sit outside & enjoy the beach activity!

A little cafe across from the pier, that serves a decent breakfast for a decent price. Service is good, food is good, and price was good.
