My husband and I stopped here for a quick brunch, mostly because it was such a beautiful day and their patio is just so inviting! Great for people watching. I just love dining outdoors when the weather is perfect. You order at the counter and the workers bring the food to you. They have a pretty large breakfast menu and... More

Enjoyed a Saturday morning breakfast with beautiful sunshine and great food. The outdoor patio with water fountain is very relaxing as you enjoy your breakfast.

Prices are a little... More

I loved the setting of this place. Great people watching, nice breeze, etc. The service was great. I got eggs and bacon and the eggs were fluffy but tasted like water. The bacon was all burned together. My hubby got a bagel sausage sandwich and he liked it but we both felt weird after. Not a place we will return... More

Too much on the menu to choose from but Salads are good- BBQ chicken sandwich or the Greek wrap are my favorites.

Stopped here for lunch on a Saturday. Town was not crowded, surprisingly, and the restaurant was not full, but it took a pretty long time for our food to come out. Service at the counter was average. Outdoor seating is plentiful, but nothing special, and we never saw anyone wiping down tables(you bus your own table). Menu is big for... More

I love sitting on the patio and watching the world go by while eating a delicious breakfast or lunch. Their Thai chicken salad wrap is great. They make really good oatmeal - very hearty. Also good breakfast wraps and croissants sandwiches.

Calypso offers a healthy selection of breakfast and lunch items. Slow cooked oatmeal, breakfast bowls and wraps, great sandwiches and soups for lunch all served either indoors or in a great patio setting in the middle of downtown San Clemente. 3-4 times per week for me....

Service and the food/coffee are mediocre but eating in the courtyard (dogs welcome) is a true San Clemente experience.
