An extremely long line and over an hour long wait for food that was served cold and terrible tasting. I ordered the HOT oatmeal and was served a SHALLOW bowl of LUKEWARM watered down oats with a half of a banana and 3 blueberries on top. Terribly long wait and an extremely pricy gift shop for mediocre food at best.

Lots of gifts and garden decor to look at and beautiful setting! Order at the counter, smaller menu but good selection, find your favorite spot outside and food will be delivered. I had the vegetable frittata, it was ok, kind of plain. Would order something else next time.

What a great find, we were just walking around and found this place. Tons of really cool yard art and other goodies!. There is also a great café, with tables outside in the court yards surrounded by the yard art for sale. We had breakfast and it was outstanding, simple but very good! This is a must see!

The line to the counter was long and winds through a pricey gift shop. The gift shop has some cool stuff to look at if you are a couple, but it you are traveling with small children then 35 minutes standing in a gift shop with fragile items is a special kind of hell. Once you place your order, you... More

We've been going to MSG for years. This week we've been there 3 times already. It never disappoints. Best huevos rancheros (in my opinion). My wife ALWAYS has pancakes alternating between the ricotta and the German Apple. It's outdoor seating and order at the counter, but well worth the effort. Don't expect elegance. It's Laguna Beach at its best.

An unusual and pleasant setting for breakfast, outside amongst the garden art and statuary. We had two breakfasts here during our weekend visit to Laguna Beach, and while the scramble and eggs Benedict were good, the German apple pancake was the standout--really delicious.

They love dogs here, what more can I say? Oh the is YUMMY, not expensive and the service is great. We ate there both times we went out on our staycation down there. Outside seating, with lots of tables to choose from. The manager came over to say hello to our Westie, he knows their attitude and that was great.... More

Near our hotel with the Urth Cafe line but the cooking area was worrying and we had upset stomachs soon after. Avoid.
