This is my favorite restaurant in San Clemente. Everything is delicious and the Butter Cake is the best!

You can sit outdoors, or indoors at either the counter, table or booth. Definitely my favorite breakfast stop in San Clemente, with great specials.

This place is not good. Their hash browns were burnt and dry...tasted like they were sitting from yesterday. Why there is a line and a full restaurant only speaks to how clueless Orange County diners are in general. The reason we have soooooo many bad restaurants? Because there are lots of people with expendable income who don't want to deal... More

What ever you order for breakfast you're going to love it. A simple bacon and eggs will make your day. It's my breakfast place any day.

This restaurant is a favorite with many people. Starting out with the yummiest hot chocolate and then Antoine's Benedict having such flavors; the basil was such a compliment. The biscuits and gravy and hash browns were delicious. The biscuits looked so much smaller than other cafes serve, but it was a totally filling dish. The service was very prompt and... More

We decided to give it one more try because we had a lack luster lunch here last month. Omelet was dry and hardly had any fillings. Hashbrowns were greasy and didnt taste fresh. We ate about 10:00 on a weekday. Latte was terrible. Bitter, unusaual taste. Waiter told us he was so busy because he was cooking and waiting tables.... More
