This is a great place for breakfast next to the train and on the quaint street in San Juan. A must if you're in town.

Tucked in Los Rios Historic district across the train tracks of downtown San Juan Capistrano is Ramos House Café. A small, unassuming, and very charming restaurant. We came in on a Friday around 11 AM and we were seated promptly. There is a dining area on the porch of this home but we sat in the patio. I love the... More

After our visit to the Mission at San Juan Capistrano, we discovered a small restaurant within walking distance of the site. The Ramos House Cafe is on a quiet street right next to the railroad tracks. Food is very fresh, especially since the herbs are grown right there. Our server was delightful and very efficient. We had the crab hash,... More

We just happened to stumble onto this restaurant based upon recommendations from people working in the area. We ordered the Crab Hash and the Crab Cake Salad. Both were the best meals we have had on this vacation trip. Very friendly service put this restaurant right at the top of our list. Enjoy

Excellent food, like it was home cooked. Locally grown ingredients. The atmosphere is a quaint, shaded patio. The neighborhood is a wonderful historic district, good for walking around. Lunch or breakfast plates are about $18-$20 each. I would recommend this as a great place to connect with friends or go on a date. Won't disappoint.

If you want to experience something different and delicious I recommend going to breakfast at the Ramos House. It's actually someone's house that is turned into a restaurant and it's a very good restaurant that's only open for breakfast with good service as well. I recommend the Bloody Mary it's a one of a kind and you just have to... More

Food was fresh, creative and delicious. Mimosas were served in a Mason jar over ice...interesting and refreshing. We love going here for special occasions. Quaint yet high end experience.
