Friendly service, good food in a picturesque setting. Small seating but no waiting during the week. Great location for strolling del Mar shops afterwards.

I dinned with a group of 4 & we were seated right away at 9 AM on a Sunday outside on the covered patio. Great atmosphere, great service & great food. The Mexican Omelette was 👍.

When visiting from out of town, we always try to stop in to Cafe Mimosa for breakfast one weekend morning. The place never disappoints; food's delicious and service friendly! Our group of four stayed with our proven favorites--Eggs Benedict and Creme Brûlée French Toast. And we were glad we did! If you're staying in the Avenida Delmar area and looking... More

Food and service top notch. We have been here a few times, and enjoy it every time. The chicken panini is a fav and also the frittata. Don't forget to have some peach mango ice tea. Brewed at your table. Yummmmmmm!

Moved to Orange County 4 months ago and finally found a restaurant I love. The artichoke eggs benedict and puff pastry desert were beyond delicious. Great brunch place.

Certainly lived up to its name with a great range of mimosa's which were super tasty!! Service was great - our waitress was friendly & helpful!! Food was ok, BLT sandwich was great but the special we had wasn't great. Certainly still heading back to try breakfast next time!

The egg-white frittata was awesome and cream broullet French toast was decadent and delicious. Highly recommended!! Go early or be prepared and patient, and wait for a table inside or out.

Small place at the end of Del Mar Street across from the library. Lines for Sunday Brunch but worth the wait.

First time visit, well we tried once before, but the wait time was too long and now we know why. Got there for breakfast midweek with no problem. Very interesting menu, with so many choices it was difficult, but all of us ordered something different and we shared. It really doesn't matter ours and everyone around us had plates to... More
