I love this place. I lived here in the 90's and lived just 3 blocks away. It was a daily hangout. Spring Break 2017 came back for a visit. Still the top of my list for breakfast and beverages. It is no longer owned by the original owner anymore and there's some more commercialization of the coffees but everything is... More

This little cafe and bakery was suggested for breakfast by our hotel clerk, and we were very well pleased. It is on a corner with both indoor and outdoor seating. Orders are placed at the counter from a fairly extensive menu and the food is brought to the table unless ordered to go. I was pleased to see that they... More

Cafe Heidelberg was delicious and definitely in our top 3 favorite restaurants. I ordered the bacon omelette, and my husband got the German sausage and eggs. Both were served with potatoes that had a great crispy crust and toast with homemade raspberry jam. This was our favorite breakfast on our trip.

Great place for breakfast, coffee, lunch (and possibly dinner). Nice vibe and a beautiful view of the ocean.

It seems a lot of locals stop in to this little cafe for a cup of coffee or breakfast. The food is very good, though a tad on the pricey side. The breakfast menu is diverse, with everything from a croissant to a huge omelet with toast and potatoes. Though small, there is sufficient seating both inside and out. It's... More

Good coffee. Fresh pastries and full breakfast menu. We were visiting from out of state, but enjoyed talking with locals.

Whenever my sister and I are in Laguna we walk down to the Cafe Heidelberg for breakfast. My sister loves the oatmeal and I love their bagels, cream cheese and raspberry jam (around $5.50 with tax including my coffee). I think their jam is fantastic (fresh). They have very good coffee also with the option to add nutmeg, cinnamon and... More

We enjoyed our freshly prepared Eggs Benedict and omelettes on a Saturday morning on the outside deck. Food was good to very good and the service was pretty good. If I lived here, I'd probably frequent the place often.
