We somehow managed to get 13 Mid-west relatives in for breakfast. They were amazed at the quality and service. This is such a first class operation and the absolute best in Dana Point

This is the place to get a big breakfast and eat outside. The food is good and the service was good. Hostess was friendly. Not exciting food but good, basic fare which is well priced.

Wonderful local, neighborhood spot for a delicious, home cooked type of breakfast. Generous portions, fresh ingredients and tasty dishes. Love the outdoor seating area, which is lovely if you have a pet. Attentive and professional staff, well rounded menu.

That's something that I would never look for, they might do a miniature facsimile like a langoustine. Lots of great stuff there and the board always has specials.
