They also have great coffee. Get there early as it is quite small plus parking can be a pain on Main St. I'll be back again soon

The out door setting is perfect for seal beach. Not an ocean view but very nice ambience. Find a table then go in and order. They will give you a number and bring there food and drinks to you. Good breakfast and good pastries.

What a cute place; great, large, cozy patio outside with free wifi, and the restaurant itself, though small, is cozy and welcoming too. Friendly staff and a great menu. My only "complaint" is that they really could offer so,e gluten free options besides the obvious omelettes.

This is a must go to for a lovely breakfast/lunch out in a courtyard just off Main Street & walking distance to the beach. You need to order inside which can be hectic, find a table & wait to be served. They get pretty crowded so be patient because it's absolutely worth it. The sandwiches, paninis, croissants, salads, omelets, everything... More

What a great addition to Seal Beach Main St. I am a regular that stops a couple of times a week and this is the only place in Seal Beach that I will pick up any type of pastry or bread. The bakery is attached to the café which is ALWAYS busy.

Great breakfast, good coffee, fast & friendly service and amazing breads - so you can imagine my disappointment when my English Muffin was delivered to the table with "Smuckers" Jam. The first ingredient is juice, second ingredient is High Fructose corn syrup. Invest in some decent Jam or Jellies to put on the great breads you serve and you get... More

Today was beautiful, sunny and warm with a gentle breeze...an ideal day to eat at this local outdoor cafe. Both breakfast and lunch are served until the cafe closes at 2 pm. We chose lunch of sandwiches, soup and salad. The cream of mushroom soup was brimming with fresh sliced mushrooms and was seasoned to perfection. We also chose grilled... More

Enjoyed a nutella and strawberry crepe here and can't wait to go back. The place is small, but there is a nice patio to enjoy the beautiful California weather. Every dish that came out looked divine!
