Rude servers and manager, average food and dirty. Plenty of other places to go for a pleasant experience for breakfast. Try San Juan Capistrano. Did I mention expensive?

This place is very close to Mission Hospital. The menu was extensive, food outstanding, and service excellent! This seems to be a popular place that locals frequent. I recommend Paul's for a hearty breakfast.

Great menu (breakfast, lunch) food like Mom made. Sit outside on the large patio and enjoy your morning. The only down side would be sometimes the fry cook can't get your eggs the way you ordered them (over easy can be very under cooked). Good cup of coffee, and get yourself a wonderful cinnamon roll with it!!

I rarely write negative reviews, but if there ever was an establishment that was deserving of one, it's Paul's Pantry in Mission Viejo. While the food might rate three-stars on a good day, having to deal with the cranky manager who sits patrons upon arrival, one's appetite quickly subsides. Not only is the manager rude, but he's condescending. More disturbing... More

Paul's pantry has been around for a long time now. It has fairly quick seating and service. It is a little hard to find off of Crown Valley Parkway but it is worth it. Don't go for the ambiance but the food and reasonably quick service. Lines can form here but they generally move pretty good. If you are really... More

Great place for breakfast. We always it out on the patio. We usually have bacon and eggs. If you prefer you can swap the toast for a cinnamon roll. You must try the cannon roll French toast. Lunch menu is pretty basic and not very outstanding, do the breakfast.

Typical breakfast establishment serving hearty portions. The usual breakfast menu, nothing fancy. They have a frequent diner program. Applaud them for their community service to those less fortunate.
