Went for Sunday brunch. You want to order almost everything on the menu - and its all great, well prepared and creative. However, overpriced. $35 for coffee and huevos.

Passing through San Juan Capistrano, chanced upon Ramos House and could not have been more pleased. Charming outdoor California cafe-style ambiance with historical touches. Blues and Rolling Stones on a turntable providing background. Outstanding food. The French toast was fantastic. Highly recommend.

Ramos House is located in Los Rios historic district and its menu is a prefect fit for brunch. Beautiful scenery by the train tracks and an authentic San Juan atmosphere.
