Love the Ramos House. Unique menu with very fresh ingredients. The Bloody Mary is a meal in itself. Always come here for special occasions..

This used to be one of our favorite local restaurants. The atmosphere hasn't changed, but the prices have gone thru the roof, especially considering the portions served. A weekend breakfast hit $125.00 for three folks, more than double the fees of a short time earlier. Quality is good but not anywhere worth the expense.

What a delightful little spot to have a perfect breakfast, brunch or lunch. The food is delicious. The orange juice is so delicious. Fresh squeezed. Oh my!!!! The menu offers a series of delectable delights. Absolutely delicious. The hot chocolate is so huge we shared and they were kind enough to serve it to us in separate cups. They provide... More

The breakfast portions are huge here. So be sure to share. I love how potatoes and eggs are mounded into a round shape and stay that way once upended on the plate. Still crispy too! Be aware that that extra biscuit they bring you will cost you another $3 though. The owners have an philosophy that kids, dogs and cell... More

Nestled behind the train depot, Ramos House Cafe has stood the test of time. Food is hearty, unique and very tasty. Recommend the homemade biscuits. Atmosphere is quaint, cozy and rustic.

I love to meet friends at Ramos house cafe, I even hosted a bridal shower there last year for my close friends' daughter. The food is always homemade, fresh and delicious. I love the scrambles and fried chicken salad. The bloody Mary's are amazing!!

Great spot in historic Los Rios District. Perfect to have a unique, southern inspired brunch or lunch. The train, cottage homes and Mission influence add to the experience. Lovely decor and attentive waitresses are always wonderful.

The food at Ramos House Cafe is consistently good. It's so good that the rumbling train station a few feet away somehow feels charming and not a nuisance. The coffee and teas are both top notch and the egg scrambles along with their biscuits are savory and light. Every table comes with a complimentary fleece blanket just in case the... More

En route home from Pasadena, we stopped in San Juan Capistrano and went to Ramos House Cafe for brunch. What a treat! Great service from Jess, and my Bacon Scramble was delightful. Start with some of their Apple Beignets, and while you may not be transformed back to New Orleans, they and their sauce are scrumptious. Likewise their Veggie Soup... More
