John our server was good and knowledgeable about the menu. I had a salmon cake sandwich that was delicious. My husband had a breakfast scramble which he enjoyed also. The reviews I read about this place say it's dark inside but the food is good. Those are accurate statements. The decor could use some sprucing up. But overall a nice... More

Friendly service and delicious food. I had the half waffle and egg. Waffle was delicious as was the syrup they provided. Egg was cooked just right as well. Looked like a place where the locals come for breakfast which is a good thing for me

We went since it is listed as oldest/longest running restaurant in Laguna - and while it showed it's age, it was decent. Pretty homey place, good for a burger or some comfort food. Service was good.

We did Sunday brunch just because and dined on the front patio. The waitstaff was familiar with gluten free and took good care to serve me safely. The mimosas were perfect as were the entrees. I had an omelette with garden veggies and cheese. The husband ordered eggs benedict. A great way to spend a Sunday morning!

Get to the White House from 4-6pm and you are in for a treat. Soup or salad an entree that could feed two and a glass of house wine for $12.95. What a delicious treat, try it you won't be disappointed! Great service. Hope this review helps your decision where to eat!

Didn't know what to expect of this place. Wife found it and we went- not disappointed at all! Great portions of food. Atmosphere was rather mellow, as we went early on a Saturday afternoon. They have a live music every night. Bar looks well stocked. Wait staff was courteous and friendly.

I was vacationing by myself. After a very stressed month and a kinda bad day, I stopped in to relax. I have to tell you Zach the bartender was absolutely fabulous to me. Made me feel at home and safe. It was my birthday. He even brought me cheese cake out of the blue. As it got busy, reggae night,... More

Breakfast was good. I had the cornbeef hash & eggs with fresh squeezed OJ. Ive never had breakfast/dinner here before but their evening concerts & bar scene are LOTS of fun. Great night life spot and great location. Parking is a little challenging but worth it. I'll definitely go back for breakfast again.
