Small restaurant with an extensive menu. So many goodies to try and decide what to have. Portions are reasonable to large. All your favorites from crepes, quiche, to Benedict's served in a puff-like pastry. If in doubt as to what to order, I suggest one...of their crepes with a side order of fruit. I do not think you can go wrong.More

This is a local little gem that we visit several times each time we are in Dana Point. The food is fantastic and it truly feels like a little Parisian cafe. The sandwiches are great and the French onion soup is amazing. My kids love...the French toast which is unlike any we've ever had anywhere else. If you are looking for the normal "American" breakfast don't come here, this spot is truly authentic and unique.More

We were referred here for breakfast. We were not very happy. First the French roast coffee tasted bland. Just no flavor to it. The olive bread was good. When our food arrived it was cold. We had to send it back. I had the French...toast and my wife had eggs Benedict. The French toast was very good once it was hot. Surrounded by cut up apples, pineapples, and other fruit. My wife did not like her eggs Benedict at all. The menu said ham steak and it was the thinnest ham every and very salty. Asked for water 3 separate times and never received it. Could not wait to get out of there.More

One of our favorite breakfast places in Dana Point. They get busy sometimes though. Many breakfast and lunch options plus great coffee and tea. Most meals use swiss cheese as their cheese of choice. Try it out. You will be happy you did.More

We had the crab omelette and the smoked salmon crepe. Both were very tasty. The smoked salmon was nice and smokey. Also had a nice latte. It’s been years since I had a latte in a bowl like it’s done in New Zealand. Very nice.More
