This is one the better breakfast places in Orange County. Come hungry because the servings are big. Sit outside and enjoy the sun while eating. Very casual feel and friendly staff,

A local resident from Dana Point recommended RJ's so we gave it a try. The service was fast and friendly. The food was also really good. They have a good variety to choose from. They have indoor and outdoor seating. I would recommend!

Although it is often crowded, RJ's Cafe offers an excellent breakfast and lunch menu. Service is excellent, portions are large and meals are always perfect. The variety of choices makes it a perfect stop when I'm entertaining out-of-town guests visiting Dana Point
