I have heard a bit about the Yellow Vase, and today was in the plaza so I tried it. There is a nice outdoor seating area but the food is just meh. Hard to pinpoint exactly what it was, but my wrap was not great...More

Yellow vase at Malaga Cove offer very nice ambiance. The plaza has other cute/nice shops and restaurants that complement the Yellow Vase as well. Menu is pretty typical breakfast but the food is quite nice.

This is a very colorful, warm yellow place, comfortable for coffee or breakfast. A nice assortment of sweet and savory pastry, including quiche. I think it's a little on the pricey side for a coffee-house style cafe, but it's lovely and everything is good.

Charming place with outdoor dining but the menu never changes and every Yellow Vase is the same. I think they are overpriced as well.

I mostly go to the one located in Malaga Cove Plaza. Nice indoor-outdoor dining, very casual, people bring their dogs to the outside front patio. You go inside and order, then they deliver it to your table.

My family enjoyed a nice brunch at this location. We enjoyed omelettes and crepes. The food and service were OK. The setting reminded me of visits to Italy with its plazas. A nice surprise in PV.

Had breakfast here several weeks ago. Service and food was great. The Malaga Cove site is very cozy and has old world charm. However, the lunches would be so much better if you had a choice as a side with your sandwich. It looks like...More
