My husband and I happened upon the Summerland Beach Cafe about 20 years ago and have been frequenting there at least several times a year since. We've had countless omelettes, 2,2,2, salads, burgers, biscuits and gravy, eggs Benedict. It's all delicious! You can't beat the coming together of a charming, historic house, a great menu, and terrific staff! Don't miss this one!
Besides loving the name, this is what I order every year on my birthday! I love the addition of sausage in my omelette.
I've been passing the Summerland Beach Cafe while heading north for many years. I finally had the opportunity to stop by and check it out. What a pleasant surprise!!! Summerland Beach Cafe is a very charming and quaint historic home built in the 1800's. Their menu has a great selection, so I decided to order the Smoked Salmon Scramble. The flavor of the smoked salmon blended with the eggs and spices was the most amazing combination that you will crave again once you leave. You will want to make Summerland Beach Cafe a regular stop, and don't forget to experience the Smoked Salmon Scramble. I highly recommend it!!!
About six times a year, I make the trek from my home in San Juan Capistrano to the Central Coast for vacation. I leave at 8am to make sure that I'll arrive at my first stop for a great breakfast. I have never been disappointed with the service, the meal or the wonderful people I encounter at this amazing restaurant. In fact, I'll be there tomorrow for my favorite meal! Crabby Bills Benedict. Best ever!
The food here is excellent! On top of the burgers, we also had chili cheese fries. Also amazing! We ate in a little patio in the back, and then make the short drive to the beach across the freeway and had a fantastic day.
I love a good tuna melt and this one always satisfies. This place has the best food and great side options for the sandwiches too.
Love this sandwich. Great flavor and is best with a side of curly fries. Can't recommend this place more!
I had the buckwheat pancakes with caramelized bananas and walnuts, and they were AMAZING. Perfectly fluffy, great flavor, and a heaping serving for a good price (on the specials menu). Definitely worth a try!
Wonderful, with lots of tender turkey, bacon and cheese. Summerland Beach Cafe is one of our favorites for both breakfast and lunch, and we try to eat there (and now with takeout) several times a month. Staff is very friendly and helpful!
The breakfast and coffee are so good. The atmosphere is warm, friendly, and sophisticated! The staff pays attention to detail and they deliver a wonderful experience!
Amazing! Summer land beach cafe is a classic!
Best scramble in town with yummy Smoked salmon!
The best burger and it comes with curly fry that are excellent. When I am availed I goes on Tuesdays for burger madness
We always come to Summerland Beach Cafe on our trips whether day or Summer out of LA. The ranch hand like all items on the menu can feed a very hungry soul or shared amongst a couple little tummies. The food is so good and filling. It has a little bit of everything for anyone to enjoy. Staff is always so friendly and hospitable. A gem in Summerland.
This is a great way to start the day on a healthy note! I go with egg whites, and a side of chunky salsa. Yum! (big portions!) Quality food and service never disappoints.
Miss our Sunday morning breakfasts at the cafe, but now do takeout - I get the Mayor Baisley's omelette with cheddar cheese, my husband has the veggie stir fry, but no eggs! Delicious every time!
One of the best sandwiches ever!
The best oatmeal ever!!!!! Love it with bananas and walnuts- Great healthy breakfast to start the day!!!!!🌞😎❣️
This place has been a favorite for so many years. My wife and I started a family custom bringing each of our five children here To start their birthday right enjoying a fantastic birthday breakfast.
I was very pleased with Summerland Cafe's service and food. Sierra was an excellent waitress. She took care of all our needs in a timely manner. I had the Two, Two and Two with Gluten free bread. It's been years since I've been able to eat French Toast. It was delicious and cooked just right. The bacon was just right. I got potatoes instead of eggs and they were perfect. The ambiance was cozy. I enjoyed the antique photography. There's something to enjoy everywhere you look. You can't go wrong with Summerland Cafe. As cafes go, it's a great choice.
When you want to step back in time and enjoy really, really great food in a charming venue the Summerland Beach Cafe is the place to go. Great food. Great staff. Great Service.
If you made me pick one, I'd have to go with the incredible May Lambert sandwich ... toasted to perfection on delicious bread, this fresh turkey and cheese, piled high, is unbeatable. And, with the choice of sides and a delicious big sliced pickle, you can't beat it. Then again, I have probably enjoyed every single item on the menu, at one time or another. The breakfasts are to die for, and you simply cannot go wrong for lunch, with breakfasts prepared at anytime. The service is terrific and there is a great vibe always present. Do yourself a favor and visit the Summerland Beach Cafe. And its dog-friendly environment on the patio makes it even more welcoming. You can't beat the ease of their takeout business, either, in these socially distanced times. It's fast, clean, and fun. And the jewel of Summerland.
This is by far the best hot chocolate I've ever had. Huge mug with a big dollop of whipped cream and the best chocolate flavor!
Good combo of everything so you don't have to choose just one :) Summerland beach cafe is the best and always hits the spot!
Excellent service, atmosphere and food!
The bacon here is the best I have had. Love the porch and the friendly service. This is our favorite place to eat breakfast. We had lunch and it was just as delicious.
Tasty gluten free French toast with bananas and strawberries on top! A very special way to start the day. Excellent and friendly staff, as always - and dog friendly on the comfortable patio is our favorite place to be.
Super fun place to get great food and your dog is always welcome. They go outta their way to make breakfast or lunch your best meal of the day. Just say May Lambert please!!!! Simply the best.
Summerland Beach Cafe is my favorite place for breakfast! Great food, great environment, and service! The waffles and bacon are my favorite and don't forget some orange juice!
This Benedict is amazing, I get this to go and enjoy down in the beach. I order with fresh fruit and it's a perfect meal. The staff is amazing and super friendly. You will love ALL the food here and the people and service. Cheers!
absolutely delicious! Full of flavor and lots of tasty veggies! always a good meal.. thank you!
OMG when you can't decide between sweet or savory go with this dish. It's a little of all the best that Summerland Cafe has to offer!!!
Having the tuna served on a large buttery croissant makes this absolutely delicious! Serving is quite generous so I usually have lunch the next day as well!
Good eats is my to go to plate! It's not super spicy but had a good kick with good flavor. The potatoes compliment this dish so well! Definitely recommend this dish.
