Adeles is located within the San Clemente Inn and overlooks San Clemente State Park. We were staying at the Inn and ate at Adele's 3 times. Two lunches and one breakfast. The food was good and freshly cooked every time and the service was excellent. The staff was pleasant. It may have helped that we were there off season and the restaurant was sparsely occupied each time. We would certainly eat here again if we are in the area.

The best cinnamon roll I have ever had! The blueberry cakes also exceptional. Adele stopped by to tell us a joke. This place is a classic!

I have been to Adele's several times over the years, and have never had a bad meal here. The owner, Adele, makes it a point to come by and meet everyone and make sure the coffee cups are full and the food is satisfactory. Inside the San Clemente Inn, the restaurant is spacious and has a "fun" atmosphere. Breakfast is especially good at Adele's, where there are always 2 or 3 unique, interesting specials. Even the coffee is special, and if you want a Mimosa or a Bloody Mary, they can accomodate you. At night, there are activities in the space, with features a stage and local talent. Overall, a SUPER experience for the traveler or the local. Plus, the beach is just around the corner! An excellent day trip or stop along the way to San Diego.

While on a girls trip to San Clemente, six girlfriends and I wandered into Adele's for breakfast based on recommendation from a waiter at another restaurant from the evening before. Adele herself met us at the door, settled us into a large booth and waited on us hand and foot. The food was delicious, big portions, unusual combinations, and came out quickly. Adele was very helpful in answering questions regarding menu items. I would definitely return next time I'm in the area.
