Call ahead and get on the (inevitable) waiting list for a great weekend breakfast! Very good Mexican egg dishes (huge breakfast burrito), fresh OJ and friendly service. A winner!

Wilma's is clearly a Newport Beach institution but. As a first time visitor, I was disappointed. On the positive side the service is good. The decor is ok but it feels dated. I had the blueberry pancakes and they were ok but have had better.

We timed it badly on a Sunday and waited 50 minutes for a table. Had the simple breakfast was good, not great. My friend said cornbread was really good. Lots of craft beers. Friendly staff

If you go to BI you have to have breakfast at Wilma's. I am pretty sure there is a local law that reads something like that. Very good food, friendly staff, clean and well maintained. And for lunch or dinner try their Mexican dishes. Very...More

You have to park in the Main Street (Marine Avenue) or in the nearby streets. It can be a bit challenging especially during weekend.
