This is a central place in San Clemente and the breakfast is good. They have organic stuff along with the good old favorites, eggs, bacon, bagels, etc. Well operated but can be busy at times.

We love to eat breakfast at the Grill. The veggie breakfast burrito is the best we've had. Great donuts and coffee round out a perfect spot. It may look like just another donut shop, but don't let that fool you!

So The grill has an extensive menu for breakfast and lunch it was tough deciding. However we decided to have the breakfast combo of eggs, sausages and potatoes with large slices of whole wheat bread toasted. Yum!! A must to enjoy.

Picked up sandwiches here for lunch. Service at the counter is very friendly and they seem to know all the locals that come in. Ordered a carnitas lunch burrito for my son, a roast beef deli sandwich for my wife, and a couple of soft carnitas tacos for myself to go. A LOT of food for the $7 or $8... More

This is my favorite breakfast spot on the weekends, the food and service is excellent, a very casual spot, there are a few tables inside, but the best is to sit outside and enjoy the weather, one my favorites is the Surfin Breakfast, lots of food at a great price
