This breakfast and lunch only cafe is consistently on the mark with their meals. Breakfast is the specialty with exceptional pancakes and eggs the way you want them every time. Coffee is great as is the superb,attentive service. Small or large parties are equally welcome. Simple fare with most satisfying results.

Went here with a small group of 6 during the week and did not have to wait. It must get busy at the weekend as there were plenty of seats provided outside to sit in! Good menu, although for California I thought that there would be more "Healthy" options. Great service and food was served quickly. There is an inside... More

Always great food and best Hollandaise sauce for Eggs benedict you will ever find. Service good as well and reasonable prices. Open only for breakfast and lunch with daily specials. More often than not prepare for a significant wait.

Locals all know how great this place is and have been content to wait in line to dine (breakfast) The owner recently added more seating and shade out on the patio so the wait is not long now. Love it because the food is consistently good and a nice menu with enough choices and the big plus i can bring... More

Skip that other Dana Point pancake place and have breakfast here. The pancakes are the best we've ever had and the egg dishes are fantastic. Usually a wait but you will not be disappointed. Great service too! A really well run restaurant
