This is a very funky local restaurant! Decor has been recently updated. It is clean and unique in it's decor. Great, prompt and courteous service. Food was better than usual breakfast place with very reasonable prices. Very local crowd, which leads to some interesting conversations!

The restaurant is nothing to brag about. They brought us water but then never asked us if we wanted anything else to drink. We ordered our breakfast and that came lay fairly quickly. They checked on us once right after then not for awhile as our cups sat empty for awhile. We got there about 10:45 am and it wasn't... More

This was a very small place and very crowded. The parking lot is tiny as well. It is crowded for good reason though. The food is really very yummy! They say you can spot a few celebrities in there from time to time as well, although we didn't see any...not that we were looking...we were clearly stuffing our faces with... More

Good food and reasonable. Even though they were very busy they quickly were able to get us a table. A lot of choices on the menu. Can have lunch or breakfast.

Bring your breakfast appetite. Strong coffee, huge omelets and special beach visuals make this eatery a must stop for beach travelers and locals. Grab a post card to send to the snow belt before going to the beach. Its open early but fills up on weekends pretty quick. Close to a couple of hotels so driving us unnecessary for those... More

I live in Phoenix but home is Orange County, CA. A visit to Newport Beach is not complete until I have a Cappy's breakfast. I've been coming here for years. They have never let me down and the waitresses are as hot as the coffee. Try it. You'll like it.

Great prices and large portions. We stopped here for a quick bite and could not believe the freshness of the vegetables in our meals. The staff was extremely efficient and very friendly. Would recommend this local restaurant if you are in the area.

In town for Thanksgiving week and decided to start our Sunday morning at Cappy's. Wonderful welcome with big smiles and amazing music playing. We were sat immediately and multiple servers jumped in together to take care of us. I liked how everyone pitched in with refills and clearing of plates too- great teamwork! Food was amazing -beach burrito and blueberry... More

I have been passing Cappy's Cafe for, well, several decades and never stopped in. I finally convinced my car to turn in to their parking lot the other day. Cappy's is not only a Newport Beach landmark, but a local gem. On my Monday visit, it was packed with local enjoying their morning coffee and chat. Service was great. Friendly.... More
