“Good food”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Ate twice for breakfast, both times fast and happy service. Food was fresh and hot both times. Great place to dine! Would definitely recommend to people staying in nearby hotels.

“Great Omelete - Attentive Service - Laid Back Atmosphere”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

I finally tried RJ's and I am glad I did. They serve mostly tradional breakfast fare with a few twists. I had the the Salt Creek Omelet with Ham, Cheddar Cheese, Monterrey Jack Cheese,bell pepper and onion with a side of hash browns and wheat toast. The coffee is very good and i must have had 6 cups. They offer some omelets with cream cheese...maybe next time. The atmosphere outdoors was very pleasant and mild, being less than a mile from Dana Point Harbor. We were there on a Friday morning and did not experience the weekends crowds. I will go back for a hamburger next time.

“Excellent breakfast”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

RJ's has a full breakfast menu (served all day). Quality of the food is excellent, and prices are very reasonable (especially for Orange County). All in all an excellent place for breakfast.

“Kind to GF customers”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

RJ's offers a great breakfast selection. I had their delicious omelets both times I ate there. The omelets without cream cheese are better than those with cream cheese. The waitress was great about making sure my meal was gluten-free and there was no chance of cross-contamination. Plus, instead of just eliminating the bread that comes with breakfast, she offered me fresh fruit instead. Overall, a great place!

“Eggs Benedict....”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Poaching eggs is one of the easiest ways of preparing eggs and yet RJ's over cooked them for my eggs benedict. None of that delicious creamy yolk ran out when I cut my egg and, the hollandaise sauce texture is more like a béchamel instead of a rich emulsion. Had my husband's breakfast not been good, especially the potatoes, I would have definitely rated RJ's a two (poor).
