Stopped here as a change of place for breakfast. Bad move.A bowl of oatmeal, $7.15 and no wi-fi sevice? With a large earl gray tea, total bill was nearly $12? The "fresh fruit" looked like it had been sitting out for a while. The oatmeal itself was part hot and cold. I'm not against teenagers, but teenagers running the place--always... More

Went here on my last day in OC just to get some variety during a visit. I wish I had come on my first day. Excellent food and enormous portions. Try one of the burritos or the pesto benedict.

Very good pastries, drinks and food. A good place for breakfast or lunch. They have both inside and outside seating. Pet friendly.

The oatmeal was fantastic as was the croissant egg sandwich.Busy but efficient. We grabbed some goodies to bring to the airport. Wish it was close to home.

Bought a pumpkin spiced muffin and a medium iced cafe au lait for $8.03 The muffin is good, about 6 out of 10, but the overpriced coffee tastes like mildly flavoured water. Pretty sure I'll never come back. I'll be trying The Hive just 20 meters away within the same complex next time.

It's 11.15 in the morning. They have run out of cookies and don't care. The staff are the most disgruntled pair (only 2 young men) I have ever met in the service industry. We order a croissant for the kids to share, paid for it and sat down. When it didn't arrive we asked and we're told they had just... More

I have eaten here several times. The sandwiches are great, but it takes A LONG TIME for your food to come out. A LONG TIME. A couple of times I thought they might have forgotten my order. The service could also be a little nicer. A smile goes a long way. Overall, I will return here because it's convenient to... More

We ate here for lunch twice, and it was great! The food is fresh and well priced. The turkey sandwich and salads were very tasty, and the iced tea was really good. You can sit indoor or outside on the patio. It's a super easy walk from the Ritz.

This restaurant is within walking distance to the hotel Ritz-Carlton. In fact, you can walk over with only crossing the street if you choose the pool exit of the hotel. We ordered three different sandwiches and soups. In California, fresh veggies are in abundance - it also appears that there are many choices in fresh breads and bakery goods. We... More
