Good portions I can't deny, but over priced indeed. My poached egg came with water around it, not drained/dried properly, in a hurry due to the volume and crowed are waiting in lines. come back again? No.

OK food, nothing to write home about. Holindase sauce on Eggs Benedict was from a mix and tasted like chicken gravy, staff thought it was best ever tasted, they need to get out more. Homemade cornbread was good. Pancakes fair. Cornbeef hash ok, I asked if it was homemade and they said they added potatoes to corned beef meat, I... More

Amelia's is to the place for a romantic dinner. Ciao is the spot for the 20's to 40's crowd (if you like it loud). The Village Inn has a bar, but Wilma's is hands down the best spot to take the family. The menu is varied enough to satisfy the pickiest kid or grandmother.

Whenever we visit our family in Corona del Mar, we plan at least one breakfast at Wilma's Patio. We've been going there for years and have never been disappointed. The staff is friendly and helpful, the food is great and the location on Balboa Island is convenient. Parking can be tricky on weekends but we always manage to find something.... More

After an early morning walk around the island on the sidewalk that surrounds the island, we walked into Wilma's Patio where we were greeted with smiles and friendly service, seated on the small patio out front (so you can enjoy the weather and people watch on the main street), immediately served coffee, and then offered great breakfast options at reasonable...

With our family we had the following wonderful dishes, roast beef with grilled veggies and mashed potatoes, an egg scramble of italian chicken sausage, zucchini, and onions with... More

Busy place but they got us in and the food was the best. This is in an old house type building with a few rooms and is very bright and nicely decorated, there is a small patio area also if you prefer that. The place in right on the main street in Balboa Island so you can have a nice... More

Food was great.. Wonderful Eggs Benedict! And the service was quick and efficient even though they were busy. It seemed to take quite a while to get the check, but it happened and the wait was a small hiccup in an otherwise very enjoyable meal.

We had a great lunch here. After a short wait we were seated on the patio. Our waitress was courteous & efficient. The menu is varied with something for everyone. I had the grilled cheese with cottage fries, excellent. Portions are generous.
