“Pleasing Lunch”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Located near the mission, this restaurant offers a nice, clean atmosphere with good food.
The specialty is the Tomato soup and it is worth a try.
A bit on the pricey side but not too bad.
Food quality is very good and the service was fine.
A good place to take friends for lunch and explore San Juan Capistrano.

“Good food, good drinks, good company!”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We walked in early evening without a reservation and were excited to find an awesome happy hour menu that we ended up ordering an amazing dinner off of! Service was great and the food tasted delicious (we recommend the steamed artichoke appetizer). They are expanding their outdoor seating which I think will make this an even greater experience for future patrons.

“Good Food”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

This restaurant has expanded it's menu since it first opened which has been an enormous improvement. Everything is delicious, especially the noodleless lasagna. Pricing is fair.

“A recommendation from a volunteer”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

When leaving the mission at San Juan Capistrano, my girlfriend asked a volunteer to suggest a nearby lunch venue. The Sundried Tomato Cafe was a little gem. It was Happy Hour and we sat outside. The pulled beef sliders were well-prepared and tasty. The chicken spring rolls were a big hit. Combined with a basket of spicy Gorgonzola fries and a craft beer, it was good news that our dinner reservation was several hours away.
