We were here on our last day in the area and it was awesome! There was nothing that was even average and the service was great. Next time we are in the area it is Cappy's for sure!

We had breakfast while staying at a nearby motel. The service was phenomenal, at least 3 people taking care of us. Good was served quick, well prepared and accommodated one vegan, too.

Please don't think that Denny's is better. I don't know what that reviewer was thinking. This place is always packed with both locals and tourists. It is one of the most recommended breakfast places from local resorts and hotels.

We have been coming here for years. Cappy's is truly the best hometown restaurant in Newport Beach. Order the deli omelet or the monte cristo Sandwich or the country fried steak and eggs for a meal that will keep you happy until Dinner. Cappy's recently opened for happy hour and Dinner so come back for great food with the locals... More

We went for breakfast and found the quality of the food awful! I had a breakfast burrito with chorizo that was completely flavorless. Salsa on the side tasted like pureed tomatoes. One of the 2 people that were with me got the crab omelet as it was what they were "known" for and it was so watery the eggs were... More
