Great place for breakfast. Food is good. What to watch for. If you are eating outside as the inside is quite small your food will surely be cold before you finish it.

Best breakfast around. Indoor and outdoor seating -you stand in line to order and then one of the girls will seat you at a table. The food is fantastic and a great value. The spicy chicken and waffles and the eggs Benedict are our favorites....More

Delicious pancakes that melt in your mouth. Deservedly #1 in Dana Point. Great and friendly service. Good coffee. Free parking in front. Comparison Marriott charges $37 for valet and $24 each plus tax and tip each for lesser breakfast.More
