The donuts are pretty good. The breakfast portions are pretty generous. The acai bowls are awesome! They do not have good coffee though...

This is a central place in San Clemente and the breakfast is good. They have organic stuff along with the good old favorites, eggs, bacon, bagels, etc. Well operated but can be busy at times.

We love to eat breakfast at the Grill. The veggie breakfast burrito is the best we've had. Great donuts and coffee round out a perfect spot. It may look like just another donut shop, but don't let that fool you!

So The grill has an extensive menu for breakfast and lunch it was tough deciding. However we decided to have the breakfast combo of eggs, sausages and potatoes with large slices of whole wheat bread toasted. Yum!! A must to enjoy.
