So delicious and flavorful! Must visit! Had the steak tacos and they were wonderful. The pretzel egg with sausage sandwich was a hit with my parents. And the salsa on the southwest omelette made it. Good fluffy eggs with plenty of veggies. Will be back again and again

Well worth all 5 stars. Service was top rate and our lunch was great. I had a quesadilla cooked to perfection.

This restaurant being rated #1 in OC speaks of the lack of any really good restaurants in the town. I've had breakfast here a couple of times and found the coffee to be weak, tasteless and served luke warm. That is reason enough not to have breakfast here. The home fries are deep fried potatoes with little or no seasoning.... More

I took 5 friends to breakfast and everyone enjoyed their meals. The food was very good but not great. The menu choices were fantastic and the service was very good. Will be happy to eat here again.

Fabulous spinach omelette. Darling decor. We have been there on the last two visits to OC and have been delighted both times.

I love breakfast and to find a restaurant that blows me away with great food, service, and cost was an unbelievable surprise. If your into trying something different breakfast this place has it. If your into the usual breakfast staples this place has it. I had the steak and fried egg tacos in a corn tortilla with fresh salsa ($10).... More

We had been here before but never realized it was the #1 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor for OC.Very generous servings, tasty food and friendly, attentive service. My husband particularly like the waffle flavored with vanilla.

Based on prior reviews we decided to try OC Surf Cafe for breakfast yesterday and were so glad we did. We arrived shortly before 9:00 on a Sunday. We had to wait a few minutes for our table and sat at comfy Adirondack chairs outside. The place is really cute. All kinds of surfing decor in key west colors. Service... More

Good coffee. I always get the Aloha breakfast. These are good people that deserve some play. You won't be disappointed.
