Atmosphere is incredibly charming. Every inch of Ramos House is Instagram worthy. Service was excellent. Saturday brunch was delicious (beignets and bacon scramble with rocket & apple fried potatoes; biscuit and iced tea) and worth every penny. My only wish is that the jelly jars he serves the iced tea and other beverages in are small. I asked for a... More

We visited on our way to the Mission. The Bloody Mary's were good and apple cinnamon beignets were good too. I have had bigger and better bloody Mary's for the price. It's a very small, quaint place. If you are not adventurous in dining, I don't think you would enjoy eating here.

Stopped in based on a Yelp review on my way back to San Diego. Was not disappointed. It was a pre fix brunch and while I thought the $40 price tag was a bit steep at first, it was completely worth it in the end. Can't wait to go back to SJC for lunch at Ramos House Cafe and to... More

If you want a place with great ambience, great food and charm, this is the place. Pick a time that is not peak time i.e. weekend brunch. Kick back and enjoy the music- vinyl records

This is THE place for a fabulous, gourmet breakfast in a quaint setting, with great service, at a reasonable price. It's located in a neat area to stroll through and enjoy.

We were late in the afternoon so maybe everyone was tired? The food is good, though I don't think great. Lot of money for brunch. It is a beautiful spot, I happened to see a couple of ladies complaining about something and the owner just brushed them off. Not great customer service.

Ramos House is a hidden gem tucked in the Los Rios District of San Juan Capistrano. We ate there for Sunday Brunch. We got there early so we didn't have problems getting a table. It was mid-February and the weather was quite nice but we were provided lap blankets. What a nice touch! The menu changes regularly. So check on... More

Can't say anything good or bad about the food, but the bloody marys are the worst in my 50 plus years of imbibing. For $15.00 they serve a small nasty pink colored concoction jammed with green beans and a shrimp. They should be ashamed to put it on the menu.
