Quick service and very fresh ingredients. The French toast, oatmeal and spinach omelette were all delicious. You can sit outside or in and view the pier and ocean right across the street. Good choice for breakfast

Our two choices were just OK. Spinach Omelette and Monte Cristo. However the service, location, value and experience were very worthwhile and we can't wait to try other options. Well run operation and will return.

We ate there twice on our visit to San Clemente. We enjoyed sitting on the sidewalk and enjoying our meal. The food was excellent and the service was great.

The clam chowder was very good. Not sure though, if any better than the chowders I've had in Oregon. Garlic cheese toast was a little disappointing. Not very garlicky or cheesy. Service was good. We enjoyed sitting outside with the ocean across the street.

Breakfast or lunch at the Beach Garden Cafe is a treat. People watching is unsurpassed and the food is very good. A favorite spot when we are in town.

We visited San Clemente for a family vacation, and were taken to the Beach Garden Cafe for breakfast, and later in the week for lunch. It's a family-run restaurant, and the love shows! Our breakfast was amazing, partially because of our charming and cheerful waitress....More

We had a party of 6 that swelled unexpectedly to 8, and we wanted to sit outside on a sunny December day. City zoning won't allow the cafe's tables to crowd onto the sidewalk, but the owner was so amazingly cooperative, she juggled tables, umbrellas,...More
