Updating my old 5 star review... this place is awesome! They added 25 tables in the backParking lot all 6 ft apart. I watched them clean the tables thoroughly. Food and service is awesome as ever but feel very safe during corona time.Old review: My breakfast was expertly prepared. The food was great and more than enough. Every time I've come here for breakfast, it's been a great experience. The service was great and fast and the price was fair.
I've been coming to Newport since I was a kid and this was always one of my family's favorite places. It a tradition of ours to come here for breakfast before the beach. I love their giant diner pancakes. A bit of a hole in the wall, but delicious!
We met some friends there for breakfast/lunch while out riding our bikes at the beach. The staff was very friendly and the service was great. Had a great meal out on the "patio" in the back. They are going to start having live music so that will be a great addition.
Always a friendly greeting when you walk in. The food is very good, I love the biscuits and gravy.
Great start to our day this morning. Had a Bloody Mary and sausage breakfast burrito. Cannot complain, great service and even better people. Highly recommend "the best breakfast in town"!
I am blown away! We spent some time looking for places to have a good brunch since we were in town - and I couldn't be happier with our decision. I had been having bad brunch experiences with nasty thrown together food - this was NOT the case here. I got a meat lovers omelette & cinnamon roll french toast, they are soo generous wit the portions. Everything cooked & seasoned perfect. Not a single complaint what so ever. And not to mention our beautiful server Amanda on TOP of absolutely everything. And not just with our table, with all her tables! She's what we need more of! Also shoutout to the cooks!! Such an amazing experience. Will be coming back!! I am writing this as I sit here that's how good it is. Good job Cappy's Cafe & Amanda!
Fantastic breakfast food the pancakes and waffles are always a good go to and I've had friends order just eggs and sausage and absolutely love it. Very casual and fun!
Always a go to place for brunch. They opened up the back area for more outdoor seating. Nice vibe looking into nature. I prefer outdoor seating. Our usual orders. Pancake combo... I like sausage links over bacon. Chili cheese omelette. A definition of comfort food. Taco salad. Happiness in a taco bowlBloody Mary to wake you up Service is great Price. Value for money. Their menu is disposable now so we won't ask for it the next time. Posting it so you can help save the trees 🙂
The food was delicious. I had the cheeseburger and my husband had the cheesesteak sandwich. So yummy! We finished everything on our plates.The restaurant is decorated very nicely and is very clean. When the front doors are closed you cannot hear the sounds of the cars on PCH. Nice little find in Newport Beach. We will be back!!
Great staff, convenient waitlist, dog friendly outside seating, good food and fair pricing, for a beach town! I particularly enjoyed seeing something other than CNN and MSNBC on their screens.
Great little breakfast spot. I loved it! Generous portions. Great prices. I'd recommend this place to anyone visiting the OC.
Hole in the wall feel with amazing food. Came here with my parents (and my dog) for breakfast today. Sat us on the patio and brought our water and a treat for my dog , which was super nice. Service was quick and really helpful. I got the Nova Lox Burrito- it was so good I'm debating going back tomorrow to get it again. No problem using the Yelp $45 for $50 deal, even though it sounds like it was just implemented. Definitely check it out for breakfast in Newport Beach!
Made a reservation on Yelp prior to arriving, as I know this place cranks. I've never been here before, but driven by with loads of people waiting. Seated right away, sorry non Yelpers... Sat on the side of the place looking at PCH and the Balboa Island Mural. Aka.. the Dog Wall seating is awesome.Pros$30 bottomless mimosas Fresh Squeezed OJPCH viewsGreat foodGreat atmosphere Friendly service Reserve your spot hereOrder from your phone at the tableConsParking can get trickyForgetting to reserve a tableI had a blueberry pancakes (1), I'm always disappointed so I ordered 1 vs a stack. Glad I did, as this loaded blueberry pancake was HUGE and fluffy. 3 of them would have put me in a food coma. Maple syrup only, wish they had compote.Also got the eggs Benedict traditional style, wife got the Florentine style. Fantastic poached egg, plenty of Hollandaise sauce.... but I'm not a fan of mayo/ creamy Hollandaise sauce.. so I was disappointed again. But still ate it. I've yet to find Hollandaise made the correct way, other than expensive restaurants and vegas buffets.(Hollandaise sauce is 3 things, super simple.. egg yolks, butter and lemon juice) can't figure out why it's not served that way, other than this style is more found on vegetables and eggs Benedict. Maybe it can be an option here.. Creamy or Lemon-y (traditional) Hollandaise Sauce.Over all- I'll totally one back to try other dishes and support small businesses. Then grab a balboa bar after
Classic NB breakfast spot now open for dine-in. Felt so good to go out to eat after 3 months and it felt very safe doing so. Plenty of outside seating and we were seated within 5 mins. Service was a A+ as well as the food. I always get the country fried steak with three eggs and home fries. Best country fried steak I've found in OC.
best breakfast and bloody mary in town!!! oooh.... just look @ that!!! yummy!!!!Entire team is following all social distance guidelines, wearing gloves and masks.Tent in back is perfect for large families.
This was the first day they opened and man did they have it dialed in!The CDC guidelines are followed to a "T."We felt very comfortable and safe.The food was amazing and they are so accommodating with substitutions.The service was impeccable and everyone is super friendly. The icing on the cake!!The restrooms were so cutely decorated and immaculate. Thanks Cappy's!We appreciate the positive experience!!
Cappy's is hands down the best breakfast (and lunch) in Newport Beach, likely all of Orange County, maybe even all of California. I LOVE this place. I can't wait to go back in when things get back to normal. In the meantime, I'll settle for their INCREDIBLE food to go! Thanks Cappy's for doing what you do!!!
Was in Newport Beach getting meat at The Butchery and we wanted to grab breakfast after. Pull up breakfast spots on yelp and this place came up. It was close to where we were at so we went. Damn! Best breakfasts spot I've been to and I've been to plenty. My buddy ordered ham which I don't like but tried his and it was delicious. I don't know what they put in them pancakes but they were fluffy and delicious. I haven't been back since everything has been shut down ( I found this place right before everything shut down) but once we open back up, this is the first spot in bringing the family to.
Sorry for the crappy Cappy review. It was a fat thumb that got overactive and submitted my incomplete rave. By rave, I am talking about it in a good way.So here is version #2.Carb lovers, rejoice. Keto eaters, not so much.The Crab omelet lost our favor, simply too much bell pepper and pico de gallo which overwhelmed the flavors of the genuine crab filling. I think Mr. B would fill up on the creamy clam chowder next visit. And there will be a next visit.Chicken fried chicken. Frankly, it will be difficult for me to order anything but this. Moist, tender, with a crisp panko crust done to perfection. I would change one thing however. The bacon cream gravy. As in too heavy, too much, rather bland. The gravy I would pass on.The clam chowder, the best! Definitely not my kind of keto meal, but for a cheat meal...mmmm.Loved this little cafe, in all its hominess and genuine friendliness and attention to quality. They do a great job on breakfasts, but save room for the chowder!
Great place for us locals to enjoy tasty stuff with quick and friendly service. The interior is well done, comfortable and inviting.
Great food , the best breakfast you can have . Fresh ingredients taste great, omelette varietés ,pancakes, French toast, all is wonderful. Delicious dishes and responsable prices.
Great local Newport Beach breakfast spot on the weekends. Breakfast and lunch served 7am - 2pm. Get there by 8am to be seated immediately and enjoy. Outside seating is small & nice. The special includes some of the favorite breakfast dishes, i.e., eggs benedict, pancake (any flavor--blueberry a favorite) combo with 2 eggs & bacon or sausage (patty or links) + mimosa or bloody mary for $20.00, coffee or soft drinks $3.50 extra. Or try the REAL CRAB omelette!*****Parking in a tiny lot so the earlier the better.
I hadn't been to Cappy's since I lived on the peninsula, but recently I read the articles on Cappy's and all of the new dishes and the fresh Hawaiian fish that is flown in everyday.My curiosity got the best of me and I headed down to Cappy's for a late lunch. I ordered the fish and chips and undoubtedly some of the best that I have had in a very very long time! A lot of generous fish with a light crispy batter. They were served piping hot and were absolutely delicious! I usually have to get my fish and chip fix at Muldoons or the Bunglow, but now I am going to Cappy's! Looking forward to trying some more of their new dishes, as well as, some of my old favorites! The ambiance delivers with Cappy's live entertainment too!
Update !!!! New owners and management what a difference!!! Now recommending Cappy's. Beautiful and updated decor. Menu and food exceeding expectations. Forgot to update last visit as promised but just did now!!! Enjoy
Eggs Benedict with seasoned potatoes is really yummy! The service is fast and friendly.
I've been here a few times for breakfast and it never disappoints. The food is yummy and the staff is quite pleasant and very hard working. Gabby helped us and was lovely. We will be back for sure:)
Lots of choices, but I keep ordering and coming back for the pancakes. Really good and fluffy. I love breakfast food in general, but their pancakes are exceptional. Service is great, with a smile.
My favorite diner style restaurant with a near the beach feel! I'm originally from the east coast where diners are a staple and this place nails it. Food is incredible - don't miss Wednesday night dinner!
Seriously . . . the BEST PANCAKES EVER! Fluffy, full of flavor, & melt in your mouth yum! I'm in a rut . . . my go-to every time.
Heard a lot about this place finally decided to try it out, very happy with the service and the food. Will definitely be coming back ASAP.
We're never disappointed at Cappy's! This afternoon we enjoyed the ohno sandwich (HUGE, beautiful piece of fish) and the always amazing sausage scramble and the obligatory bloody Mary's. Service is top notch, always. We love coming here - our go-to fave brunch spot!
This is one of my favorite breakfast place in Newport. Portions are big and the food is delicious. I always order a side of blueberry pancakes (my favorite) and it comes out so fluffy and I barely finish it because it's huge even just 1. To be honest I think Cappy's serves the best blueberry pancakes in town. If you haven't been, give it a try not only because of the food but the service is always great too. It's definitely a local spot! I came in for breakfast on Thanksgiving and got the breakfast burrito with sausage which was amazing with some coffee and oj and a blueberry pancake. Thank you Jazmin for great service!
Cappy's continues to have excellent food and service. All staff is very efficient and friendly. 5 stars everytime!
Had breakfast there yesterday morning. I ca always count on it to be good. Their menu has a large choice of items. Give it a try1
This our second time having breakfast at Cappy's and it is wonderful. The menu is diverse and the meals are very tasty.Another plus is your credit card never leave the table. They use a mobile pay machine right at your table.
