“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Standard breakfast fare in a hole-in-the-wall environment right on PCH near main beach. The Wyland omelet, recommended by the waitress, was a great recommendation. OJ tasted like it was fresh-squeezed. But get your coffee someplace else unless you like diner coffee.

“Great spot for a drink and some live music.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This place isn't what it used to be. However, the service was good. The crowd wasn't moves away from the typical highbrow Laguna scene and is a bit more inland. Food and beverage were average across the board, there is nothing particularly noteworthy. Definitely come to the White House after 930p for some live music. Some great DJs or bands come through here.

“Breakfast, dinner, drinks -whatever -GREAT!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

This is information from a local, not these people on here who have visited places in Laguna ONCE. Love, love, love their breakfasts -eggs benedict -mouth watering, but you will have to ask for more sause on the side... I always do & it is no problem. Their burgers -HELLO -delicious! And please try their Asian chicken wings if they still have them -baked in sweet/sour sause with sesame seeds -OMG GOOD!!
