One of Kind Find

Got off the train and there it is. Nice, open patio...relaxing and inviting. Staff was friendly and the food really good. Great place to just hang out and unwind, right in old town San Juan. The Hummingbird House is one-of-a-kind and definitely worth the visit on your next trip to San Juan.

This is one place my picky eater small grandkids enjoyed their food. The have kiddie meal and my little ones enjoyed the pizza. I had the Avgolemeno soup which was just perfect for my taste buds. The tropical ambience patio was cooling after a hot afternoon strolling down the historic district and the pet zoo. It is next to the... More

This was a perfect restaurant for a perfect day. We wandered across the railroad tracks to Old Town San Juan Capistrano and found this jewel. Open patio, covered by umbrellas .. so peaceful, so restful. We were greeted immediately by our waitress, who was excellent throughout our visit. (Previous concerns about poor service should be ignored! Ours was fine!) We... More

We were heading to San Diego and decided to stop in San Juan Capistrano for a little lunch. Behind the Amtrak and train station is a tree lined street with little restaurants, coffee shops and cafes as well as some little shops. We really stumbled upon the Hummingbird House Cafe but we had a great lunch. We ordered the spanakopita... More

We were looking for a restaurant that didn't feel like a tourist trap in San Juan Capistrano. The Hummingbird House Café was just what we were looking for. The veggie wrap was delicious and healthful. The vegetation on the patio is lush and a hummingbird visited some flowers nearby. Efforts to be environmentally sustainable are apparent. Seeing the Amtrak and... More

I ordered a gyro sandwich which was plenty of food.. fresh and tasty too! I don't drink ice tea so I was offered homemade lemonade and it was super fresh and delicious! Where else can we get homemade lemonade... nowhere that I can find when I am out and about! Enjoyed the patio dining too :)
