Bring your breakfast appetite. Strong coffee, huge omelets and special beach visuals make this eatery a must stop for beach travelers and locals. Grab a post card to send to the snow belt before going to the beach. Its open early but fills up on weekends pretty quick. Close to a couple of hotels so driving us unnecessary for those... More

I live in Phoenix but home is Orange County, CA. A visit to Newport Beach is not complete until I have a Cappy's breakfast. I've been coming here for years. They have never let me down and the waitresses are as hot as the coffee. Try it. You'll like it.

Great prices and large portions. We stopped here for a quick bite and could not believe the freshness of the vegetables in our meals. The staff was extremely efficient and very friendly. Would recommend this local restaurant if you are in the area.

We have eaten at Cappy's Cafe and it is so Beachy. Good food, good service. On main highway. Near the beach. We'll go back. Walk to the sand across the street.

In town for Thanksgiving week and decided to start our Sunday morning at Cappy's. Wonderful welcome with big smiles and amazing music playing. We were sat immediately and multiple servers jumped in together to take care of us. I liked how everyone pitched in with refills and clearing of plates too- great teamwork! Food was amazing -beach burrito and blueberry... More

I have been passing Cappy's Cafe for, well, several decades and never stopped in. I finally convinced my car to turn in to their parking lot the other day. Cappy's is not only a Newport Beach landmark, but a local gem. On my Monday visit, it was packed with local enjoying their morning coffee and chat. Service was great. Friendly.... More
