Unexpected, Cafe & Bakery....Definitely need to plan ahead: go early to lunch or call in ahead of time. Worth every penny and loved the variety of tasty meals: Soups & Fresh salads are lovely

I really like the salads and great bread at Speciality's! For a large chain, they do a great job and it's easy to pick up one or twenty sandwiches on short order. The Cobb is my favorite. Check it out!

The food at Specialty's is excellent. They provide great customer service and their deliveries are always on time. I recommend the box sandwich lunches, the salad boxes and the chocolate cookies! Yum!

If there's one thing I love the most about Specialty's - it's the amazing consistency. Terrific breakfast offerings and of course, there were cookies to grab for my mid-afternoon coffee break. You can't beat Specialty's for delicious, home-made-tasting goodies. YUM. Quick and friendly service, too!

I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed! Great sandwiches, salads, soups, pastries, and desserts!! They have a great outside seating area too! I eat here at least once every time I come to California.

This cafe is located in the office complex where the Wyndham Irvine hotel is which is how we found it. A bit confusing set up, as you walk in there is a counter with a till and coffee machines and further in there is another counter and till. Since we were only having coffee we stopped at the first counter... More

This little place is right near my office, and convenient for a pastry and coffee, seems pricey,. but given that there is really nothing else around, other than Starbucks in the Marriot, it is fine.

Thank Ronnie F
