Within walking distance from the beach and near other places to go, this was excellent. Got there before the lunch rush and after the breakfast bunch left (Big Biker stop Bicycles that is) and had an excellent French Dip. Large Portions and great price, I will certainly stop by again when I don't see a line at the door. Local... More

Tried the homemade corned beef hash and eggs which was mostly meat! We also ordered the stuffed french toast... Delightful! The corned beef omelette had plenty of Swiss cheese and loaded with corned beef. The fruit was all very fresh and sweet. The only thing we didn't enjoy was the noise. Other than that it was a fun place to... More

We had breakfast today and I had eggs, three huge pancakes and the thickest crispy bacon I've ever had. My husband had a skillet and waffle and enjoyed both. Laid back atmosphere and reasonable prices. Might go back today for dinner!

Had breakfast (eggs benedict and eggs Florentine) and it was delicious. Hashbrowns were perfect, bloody mary was spicy and hit the spot, and the staff was attentive. Only disappointment was that we came back for dinner and they weren't open; dinner and happy hour on Wednesday night only.

It's difficult to give this restaurant enough superlatives. The Denver omelette I had was the best ever. Each ingredient had its own place and could be tasted with the other ingredients or separately.What a syphony. The service was quick and friendly. Cappy's opens at 6 AM for breakfast. Eat breakfast there and you shouldn't be hungry all day.

Friendly staff with great service plus great food. The portions are huge. The servers were always keeping drinks filled but never pushy. Must try Cappy's if you are in the area

We make it to Newport Beach about once a year and ALWAYS go to Cappy's. The staff is friendly and the decor is fun and oceany. Their meals are ten dollars-ish, and you get TONS of food. And now that they are open until dinner time on Wednesdays, it is easier than ever to make sure we never miss Cappy's!
