I went here to meet a friend for breakfast. It was a very pleasant experience. Nothing super fancy, but good service and a parking lot that was not overcrowded.

On a business trip from San Diego to Anaheim, looking for a good place for breakfast. Obviously went based on Trip Advisor reviews and they didn't disappoint. Friendliest staff with great food and huge portions.

The food is delicious. The coffee and omellete are to die for. The service was great. My wife were treated with a lot of respect and attended well the entire time. Is a must breakfast place if you are in Dana Point.

My wife and I stopped in for breakfast after our stay San Onofre Marine Base Campground. Mid Week and Sugar Shack was not busy. We ordered Eggs with Hash Browns and Biscuits w/ Gravy. Good coffee also. The eggs and hash browns were pretty standard. The Biscuits and Gravy were over the top good. Biscuits were homemade and sooooo light.... More

New to the area and trying different locations. Glad we stopped the folks were nice. Our coffee cups did not get half empty before the were refilled. The cinnamon roll was one of the better ones we have had and the huvoes rancheros were nice. The prices were very good. I am sure we will go back.

We usually come to the Sugar Shack for breakfast with a coupon to make it affordable. The ham served with the ham and eggs is outstanding—it makes the meal. Too often ham has a formaldehyde taste—not at the sugar shack. Lunches are just OK and the other breakfast items are serviceable but nothing special. Come for the ham it is... More

Rose's is a special local family run restaurant that does extra touches to the meals. Loved the ambiance and exceptionally friendly and attentive service. Had breakfast here. My wife had the Salmon Benedict (extra touch of crispy "flash cooked" spinach). I had their C'Dragon - eggs, sausage, and waffle (extra touch was the "waffle" was actually 4 mini-waffles (Belgium style)).... More

Rose’s Sugar Shack is one of my favorite breakfast spots in San Clemente. Nothing fancy, family friendly and good food. If you get there early enough, you have to try the homemade cinnamon rolls. Extra love and fresh ingredients make them the best in the West! On our recent visit I had scrambled eggs, bacon, fresh fruit and an English... More
