Food is fine. Salads and sandwiches. Kinda pricey. The views from the patio across the street toward the ocean are gorgeous! Go on a beautiful day and enjoy.

Great for a quick breakfast stop, fresh and tasty food accompanied by a coffee to wake up, after a early morning bike tour. The Yellow Vase has ocean views and is close to several resorts in the area.

The experience of Yellow Vase Bakery, Cafe & Flowers is unlike any other local restaurant -- imagine entering a café and immediately being tempted by decadent pastries and the aroma of coffee, then seeing a menu that boast delicious breakfast and lunch items. Not only is Yellow Vase a place to treat yourself, it is a full service, high-end florist and retail shop that has posh gifts and unparalleled floral creativity. We specialize in cakes and flowers for weddings and other large upscale events. People such as Hilary Duff have been spotted eating here, and Beverly Hills 90210 films at our locations regularly. If you haven't yet visited the Yellow Vase in your neighborhood, be sure to stop by and find what you've been missing.
