Great place to stop and grab a bite. It also has fantastic views below. Note that it does get crowded and there is limited parking- most people wait in a line that backs onto PCH for a parking spot. But it's a nice little place...More

I stopped here with family and we had about a 20 minute wait in the car line to even park. It went quickly though and our food came in a relatively short period of time considering how busy the place was. I had burger, fries...More

Truly, a very special and unique area with historic cottages that have retained the charm and character of the 20's and 30's. The Beachcomber Cafe is a great place for lunch that is right on the beach.

We went here for lunch on Mother's day. It was a mistake- too crowded. They have changed their menu and do not have my favorite roast turkey sandwich with cranberry sauce. So I tried their clam chowder which is no longer served in a bread...More

We drove by this place on our way to our hotel in Laguna and just had to stop in! The Shake Shack is a California classic. Tiny little outdoor eatery perched on the edge of the bluff overlooking the ocean. You place your order at...More

This classic beach snack bar/diner is a must-stop for anyone driving the coast between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. Parking is very limited, so be prepared to wait, or drop off your party and have them order food to go. Great views from the deck...More
