Always great food and best Hollandaise sauce for Eggs benedict you will ever find. Service good as well and reasonable prices. Open only for breakfast and lunch with daily specials. More often than not prepare for a significant wait.

Skip that other Dana Point pancake place and have breakfast here. The pancakes are the best we've ever had and the egg dishes are fantastic. Usually a wait but you will not be disappointed. Great service too! A really well run restaurant

We stopped in for Breakfast while out in Dana Point for the PPG and were again pleased to have a fantastic breakfast of Eggs and Sausage , and a Vege Omelette finished off with the always incredible Cinnamon Roll French Toast. Delicious all.

A friend took me to RJ's after a morning out on the ocean. I was delighted to find so many of the classic cafe menu items that no one ever grows tired of. My tuna melt was delicious. There is no doubt I will become a regular.

Rockstar breakfast!!! This is where the locals go in Dana Point. I know this because I went with one of my buddies who invited 6 of his harbor friends and they all ordered without menus. Biscuits and Gravy...this is the God of Biscuits and Gravy. Literally 4-5 inches tall and 6 inches wide and that was a half order. Gravy... More

My wife suggested we go to RJ's yesterday for breakfast it was packed. We waited about 5 minutes for a seat outside. At first I was a little disappointed they did not have hash browns. I ordered two poached eggs, potatoes, sausage, and English muffin. The poached eggs were perfect! Soft inside lost places over cook the poached eggs. The... More
