My group and I have eaten here in the past. Food is so/so. This time they refused to give us a table until every last person in the group was present. They do not take reservations in advance and have become snooty. We went up the street to Bistro St. Germain where service was polite,friendly, wonderful food. We will never... More

Great indoor/outdoor restaurant in Old Town Seal Beach. Dogs welcome in the outside seating. We prefer breakfast and brunch but offers good lunch menu.

A neighborhood haunt. Good breakfast, but often overly busy and wait times can be long--especially on weekend mornings. The adjoining bakery has tasty stuff to go.

After moving to Seal Beach we always see long lines of people waiting to get in to this restaurant. We assumed it was good, but waited until the middle of the week to give it a try. Now we know why there are lines. They have amazing crepes, and the most wonderful savory crepes I've ever tasted! Will definitely return!

But honestly, I've never had anything here that was any better than anything I can get anywhere on Main St. It's tasty, it's just average. I've never had a side of fries that didn't taste burnt or a coffee order that didn't take 10 min or more to receive. I was given a $100 gift card for the place or... More

Cafe Crema is right on Main Street-parking can be difficult at busy times. The menu is very varied we chose Chorizo Eggs Benedict --it is served with a choice of roasted potatoes or fresh fruit, many types of bread, english muffin etc. Many of the egg dishes you can subsitute with egg whites for a small additional cost. The Eggs... More

A good breakfast place must open early and have good coffee. This place checks both boxes. They are open at 7 and the coffee is pretty good, not watered down like many other places. My family likes the crepes. The omelets are pretty good. The service was very fast on the Sunday morning I visited. Only negatives are very limited... More

I love this place! The food is really fabulous and reminds me of my trips to Europe. So for that reason I'll be back. However the service isn't always the best. Sundays don't even bother, the wait is long and disorganized.
