Nestled behind the train depot, Ramos House Cafe has stood the test of time. Food is hearty, unique and very tasty. Recommend the homemade biscuits. Atmosphere is quaint, cozy and rustic.

I love to meet friends at Ramos house cafe, I even hosted a bridal shower there last year for my close friends' daughter. The food is always homemade, fresh and delicious. I love the scrambles and fried chicken salad. The bloody Mary's are amazing!!

Great spot in historic Los Rios District. Perfect to have a unique, southern inspired brunch or lunch. The train, cottage homes and Mission influence add to the experience. Lovely decor and attentive waitresses are always wonderful.

The food at Ramos House Cafe is consistently good. It's so good that the rumbling train station a few feet away somehow feels charming and not a nuisance. The coffee and teas are both top notch and the egg scrambles along with their biscuits are savory and light. Every table comes with a complimentary fleece blanket just in case the... More

En route home from Pasadena, we stopped in San Juan Capistrano and went to Ramos House Cafe for brunch. What a treat! Great service from Jess, and my Bacon Scramble was delightful. Start with some of their Apple Beignets, and while you may not be transformed back to New Orleans, they and their sauce are scrumptious. Likewise their Veggie Soup... More

We went here with friends and enjoyed the ambiance including the train passing through town and stopping to pick up and drop off passengers. The unisex washroom is worthy of a conversation as is the menu. We started off by sharing an order of beignets with their special sauce. The varied breakfast dishes were delightful. This is a great place... More

I really enjoyed meeting my friend at this place. I don't know if I'll return but it was an experience. The place is quaint including the bathroom. I liked the food but the price was more than I would want to pay on my budget. Love the patio seating the very help staff once you get their attention. Very accommodating... More

Ramos House Cafe is a quaint restaurant in the Los Rios Historic District of San Juan Capistrano. It is easy to find. If you are at the San Juan Capistrano train station, cross the tracks and you are in the middle of the Historic District. Ramos House Cafe is the second restaurant to your right. It has a lovely outdoor... More

It's very lovely and peaceful there. The food is tasty but the Sunday brunch is expensive. Its around $45 and you only get 1 drink, (which is either a coffee, a juice or a glass of inexpensive champagne). For two people last week with tip was $120. That's one appetizer, 1 main and 1 coffee ea. One of us ordered... More
