Whenever we get to Southern California, we always have breakfast here. And we order the same item, Vegie Crepe. Has a variety of vegetables, cheese, the crust is good. We like the Black Magic coffee. Green Tobasco, which we like, is available. Parking is sometimes a problem, but if you have to walk a couple of blocks it is worth... More

We had lunch here yesterday! My wife had the cheeseburger and absolutely loved it. Told me I had to go back have one it was so good. I had the Chef salad. It too was really good! The waitress was very nice. Service was excellent; very friendly! Need to go back for breakfast!

Living in Orange County we drive down to San Diego about once a month. Always looking for breakfast places as we rather leave early and avoid traffic. Someone at work mentioned this place and the reviews from Yelp were all good. Got there on a late morning Saturday trip, expecting long lines but we must have arrived in between breakfast... More

We enjoyed an awesome breakfast brunch today. we were promptly seated and followed by our very welcoming waitress which provided us with a seat outside where we could enjoy the fresh air while dining. Our food was savory and the California Benedict was awesome. Highly recommend for your dining pleasure

Antoine's Cafe is a fantastic restaurant! They have delicious food and the staff is super friendly. The coffee is also outstanding. The establishment has the atmosphere of a Parisian cafe with the added bonus of surfboard decor. They play fantastic old music that adds to the old fashioned mood. I highly recommend this spot!

I used to love going to this place when I lived in San Clemente so when I stopped in to visit my mom today and she mentioned going here for lunch I jumped at the chance. They have definitely revamped their menu in the five years since I've been there. Mom was a little disappointed to find out they don't... More
