Once again we found ourselves on Balboa Island. Once again Wilma's Payion looked like the best place to eat, and it was. I had the fish and chips and my wife had the breakfast. Both meals were prepared excellently and were delicious. The service was...More

It’s hard to beat the picturesque Balboa Island bridge and street where Wilma’s is located. Wilma’s has a down home breakfast that we always enjoy. Nothing fancy but cute and fun. Good home cooking! Pancakes, eggs, waffles and more. Love it:)

I met some out-of-town friends here for breakfast. We loved the outdoor patio seating to soak up a lovely day. They had umbrellas so we didn’t soak up too much sun. They offer traditional breakfast fare with exceptional taste and hearty portions. The service is...More

We saw the reviews online and were very excited to try Wilma's....it did not live up to the hype! First, the cornbread that came with my omelette was not fresh, quite tough in fact and dry. The seafood omelette itself did not have crab meat...More

This place is very popular, but we were able to get the last table on the patio since we had walked over from Newport Dunes with our dog. Good variety of usual and unusual breakfast items. Service was friendly and prompt. Would go back if...More
