This is what a breakfast place should be. Good coffee, attentive and fast service and really good eggs and hash browns. The woman who I paid on way out super friendly. Definitely a place I would want to go back to.

Were here on a weekday after Christmas. Busy place, service was awesome and food was perfect. That 'perfect breakfast place' surrounded by small shops all up and down Balboa Island. A 5-minute walk down to the water. Very fairly priced. Hostess was extremely friendly. Will 100% go back. 10 minute drive from Marriott Villas in Newport Beach.

We had a great Saturday morning breakfast here. You can tell most people there are locals but the staff treat everyone like family. The wait time was around 15 minutes but it was a beautiful day so we were happy to sit outside and wait. We had pancakes, waffles and the house made ice tea - the portion sizes were... More

I was in Newport Beach for business, and was able to bring my husband. After work was done, stayed over a day and went to Balboa Island. Beautiful place! We had breakfast at Wilma's. omg. So yummy. Had one of the best omelets. Simple, ham, cheese, mushrooms. Large portions though! It came with toast and fruit (I can't remember what... More

Very busy and clearly a popular place but to be honest although the reception was very friendly and welcoming, the service was really slow and getting a cup of tea proved difficult! (why?) The mexican breakfast was great but the eggs benedict dishes were absolutely huge and not that flavoursome Obviously popular with dog owners as the outside area was... More

After a long run I stopped at this welcoming little restaurant. I was seated right away and greeted immediately by the friendly staff who was very helpful and always noticed when my glass ran low. They offer many local micro brews on draft as well. I choose the Wilma Burger and added pepper-jack cheese and asked for it to be... More

Good food on Balboa Island is not difficult to find but Wilma's is among the best. Lunch is great regardless of your choice. I recommend it most highly.

It's always a treat when on, near or within driving distance of the Island to hit Wilma's. True comfort food, big portions and adult beverages keeps this place hopping constantly. Good news, it's much larger than it looks and the tables turn quickly. Put your name on and relax, you'll be in and stuffed shortly. I would suggest their seasonal... More

We visited this restaurant by chance and had a very pleasant experience. The interior is very kitsch and homely and the menu is extensive. We had the kids menus and some adult meals and for the first time in 2 weeks we all finished our food! Our waiter was absolutely brilliant and funny and the hostess, Sandy came to chat... More
