I eat here every time in SC, right across the street from the pier. Huge plates of food, which is always awesome!

We have only had breakfast here, but it has got to be the best. Best food & best value. Can be crowded on the weekends and if you sit outside it can feel a bit like you're in the way of people waiting for tables. If you don't mind that then go have one of your best breakfasts ever. Mimos's... More

We were here for breakfast yesterday. Fortunately we got to sit outside on the patio. The restaurant is across from the beach so the atmosphere was almost perfect (better if we could actually put our feet in the sand but that restaurant doesn't exist here, unless you pack your own). The potatoes are perfectly cooked. I love veggie benedicts and... More

Across the street from the San Clemente Pier. A small casual spot. Excellent waffle! Very friendly helpful service.

My husband and I lunched here after reading favourable reviews on Trip Advisor. I had the oriental salad with chicken, my husband the shrimp and chips plate. We both enjoyed our meal very much, my salad was fresh with a nice assortment of ingredients and a very good Asian dressing. The shrimp plate was fantastic, huge shrimp that was nicely... More

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
