Loved the outdoor seating and the menu. Parents and kids loved the breakfast burritos, bagels, and muffins. Burritos could be made gluten free. Dad loved the coffee. Mom loved the parfait.

The Galley Cafe, a must stop. Going out on the water today. So a little food stop before. They are known for their chocolate malts. They say it's one of John Wayne's favorite places.

The Galley is a well known and highly thought of restaurant in the Balboa area of Newport Beach. It's especially great for breakfasts. It's location on the water is also a plus but you have to know where it is.

You'll need directions to find this place, but it has great simple dishes at a fair price too. Close to the water in Newport Harbor.

Longing for a trip down memory lane? Take a trip to the Galley cafe. Wonderful breakfasts with all of your traditional favorites served in an original 50'decor venue. Get on Google maps --it is tucked away near a boatyard. The servers here are warm and...More

We were hoping for more based on the other reviews, but the food was only so-so and the portions were really small. Most breakfast places offer a pancake combo that comes 2 pancakes and 2 eggs, but they only offer 1 and 1. So my...More
