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.

This place has awesome atmosphere. It is also a gift shop. I love eating here. The food is very good. Slightly pricey for me but so worth it.

Friendly and welcoming. Tons of lovely stuff you can buy to decorate your garden. Take your puppies, they're very welcome. In fact John Madison, the owner, circulates chatting to people and dogs alike. He also packs treats, so he's super popular with the 4-legged guests. Nice. Recommended.

Dog friendly breakfast and lunch restaurant. This place has a very comfortable atmosphere and similar to Urth you order at the counter and they bring it to you. About mid-range pricing.

This is a delightful coffee shop, restaurant and garden on Pacific Coast Highway. The venue had hundreds of items that are unique and add to the dining adventure. There were many people there for just coffee and a few for a full breakfast. We enjoyed the scenery and coffee.

This is our favorite place in Laguna Beach (where we are locals). The owner Jon is amazing and always gives the kids toys and the dogs biscuits. The food is great and the atmosphere makes you want to relax and stay a long time. This is as good as it gets! :-)
