A local resident from Dana Point recommended RJ's so we gave it a try. The service was fast and friendly. The food was also really good. They have a good variety to choose from. They have indoor and outdoor seating. I would recommend!

Although it is often crowded, RJ's Cafe offers an excellent breakfast and lunch menu. Service is excellent, portions are large and meals are always perfect. The variety of choices makes it a perfect stop when I'm entertaining out-of-town guests visiting Dana Point

That's something that I would never look for, they might do a miniature facsimile like a langoustine. Lots of great stuff there and the board always has specials.
