Rockstar breakfast

Awesome egg burrito post surf stop essential or load up. Fine coffee and fresh orange juice... All the breakfast food you can think of but a cut above in quality with solid friendly service. This is a san clemente staple for me!

Portions were huge, food was delicious. We had so much food, we ate the leftovers the next day. We all loved the food and the location. We walked to the pier afterward. Great prices. Our family of 6 ate for $70 and we made it stretch into 2 meals. Our one complaint was that the home fries didn't have a... More

If you want a good, well cooked meal this is your place. Right on the beach opposite the pier. Try the chowder - excellent. Nice informa atmosphere and some good outdoor seating. Gets busy though.

We went there on our vacation because we stayed close by & it was so delicious. They also serve diedrichs coffee which is the best!! The portions where big & the prices were excellent. Great service with a gorgeous view & a lot of locals there. A true gem & worth the try for an excellent breakfast!

This is another little restaurant in an excellent location. We went there for clam chowder soup, because we heard it was so good. It is. It is a nice thick and creamy soup with a lot of clams. They also have some good and very meaty sandwiches.

We stayed at accomodation a few yards away, and visited the Beach Garden Cafe for breakfast every day. It could get busy, and one day we had to wait 15 minutes for a table. By the end of the week the staff had identified our breakfast choices ( the pancakes, sausage and syrup were excellent), and we did not need... More

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.
