Delicious breakfast in the most picturesque spot in Newport Bay. Beautiful scenery.
We had a reservation for 11:45 a.m. on Sunday - we were seated at 12:20 p.m. Why did we make a reservation?
6 of us were crammed into what sh have been a 4 top at best. Hosts were very apologetic about the wait, but not the table. There was a huge table in the middle that was just clearing - can we have that one? No, sorry, we have a res for 9 at 12:30 (they didn't show up and a couple - 2 people - was later seated at that giant table).
Our server came by and asked what we'd like to drink. There's no coffee listed on the menu. We asked if they had coffee and was it good? The answer was yes - so 2 of us asked for coffee. Then another friend saw someone else drinking something that looked like a Cappuccino... do you have Cappuccino? Yes, and Lattes and Mochas said our server. Gosh - we would have loved to know that at the beginning of the coffee conversation - and didn't that used to be called upselling?
For $10.99 I got 2 eggs with toast and a side of fruit. $2 extra for bacon. Ok - it is a high rent area, but since when do you have to add on your "breakfast meat"?
They did comp our appetizers and at the end of the day the server did make it a more positive experience though we never heard his name. I won't go back - at least not seated inside. It's waaaay too loud - all hard surfaces. I had high hopes.
Great place. Disappointed they did not have the english muffins for eggs benedict for brunch on Sunday (???)
The beignets are a family favorite!
We loved our dinner and the service was fabulous!!
On my past visits (3) it has been very good overall. This last time, the service was not good at all and the food was not prepared as stated on the menu. I usually recommend this cafe to friends, but I am now reluctant to do so.
Food was excellent
Our family really enjoyed our lunch at here! The service was great, food was very good, and you can't beat the location and view. We had fun outside after our lunch with the sand right outside the door - great place to go for a walk and a few corn hole games! Fun family day!
Overall we enjoyed dinner here. The only real issue was the halibut my wife ordered. It was undercooked when it was served and when it was returned after cooking further, it was not the tasty, flaky, fish we expected. On the positive side, the setting overlooking Newport Harbor was beautiful. The staff was accommodating and brought my wife a blanket and moved the patio heater closer to stave off the cool evening air. My own meal was delicious, a sort of spicy tomato based sauce over pasta with an ample serving of shrimp, clams, mussels, and crab. We will try it again and perhaps choose something other than Halibut.
Liked the location but noise was too much
Fell in Love with this place, made a breakfast reservation and OMG! View was gorgeous, very relaxing! Food was amazing, delicious! We had a full meal, the yogurt, coffee, mimosas, binnets, omelettes and toast! Loved Loved, it all!
Eggs were over cooked. Location. Is beautiful however the food was not very good.
We were celebrating two birthdays at the Lighthouse Cafe, and it was the perfect setting for this. If you sit inside, be prepared for a pretty noisy environment, but the food, atmosphere, and setting made it a great choice.
Wines are all overpriced anywhere from $4 to $8 more per glass for same wine at other good restaurants but one of the nicest relaxing restaurants on the bay
Came for my bridal shower and absolutely had a blast with my girls! Thanks for always being accommodating !
Lunch with friends 🎬
Went there for my birthday brunch and it was amazing. Such a cute little spot right next to the water. Food was amazing!
Exceptional service at this lovely spot overlooking boats in the marina. Beignets are a must! Also loved the avocado toast.
Very disappointing! Great view, food was average and terrible service.
Great little place by the water. Be sure to make a reservation if you would like to sit outside.
Loved the water front/beach view! Smoked salmon Benedict was delicious as well as the beignets! Great service!
We celebrated an Anniversary brunch there while visiting from out of town. Wonderful experience and casual which is just what we wanted. Our waiter, Nacho, was very friendly and fabulous!
Great appetizers, decor, a unique place for dining
I had a great time at Lighthouse Cafe. I ordered the Harbor Special, which was a small filet mignon (3-3.5oz), a cup of clam chowder, and a small salad. This cost $25 and was a very good meal if you aren't looking for a huge portion! My friend got the salmon and she said it was delicious. The view was outstanding. I plan to go back!
Horrible Service the worst I have ever had. Four of us at the table are previous wait staff so we know. Food came out over cooked or one person ordered at the same time the dish took more minutes. The waiter didn't remember who had what. We were charged for food we never received. Bottomless mimosa are not worth it because you can't get them to refill your glass. Had to ask time for silverware and sweetener for ice tea( never came) . Bad Food Bad Service and it's too bad because is a great location.
Food was really not quality this trip. Salad was wilted and the meat was as really tough
Delish! Great view, but unfortunately hard to find a parking spot
Great food, great service, great view. Definitely eat outside.
Sunday brunch. Place is very tourist. Brunch was good order the beignets they are so good! The menu has several options. This place is very average.
Loved eating with the view. The sourdough bread great and calamari. Everyone enjoyed their dinners. Salmon steak a little on the skimpy side and fish & chips good
Food and service are consistently great! Breakfast is amazing. They have a kids menu with good choices.
Took my girlfriend on a date to the Lighthouse. We both enjoyed it! Food was good and the servers were attentive. We sat outdoors and the environment was relaxing.
We sat outside facing the beach,which was pretty nice. We ordered the blueberry pancakes and the eggs toast and bacon with fruit. It’s pretty standard food,nothing special, but they do give you a generous amount of food for the price. Somewhere easy and quick and a good view of the bay.
Dirty, lots of flies roaming around while eating inside. I was truly unsatisfied
The only problem was flies, and a few people even refused a table by the window because there was dead flies, and many flying around.. it was a little unpleasing we were not at the window but we noticed them.
It was great ! I dependently go again. The brunch was the best ever
View and location was great - food was fair at best. Service was fair.
Great spot, nice view of the beach. Easy, inexpensive parking, although the parking gets full quickly, plenty of people coming and going. Menu choices vary from brunch to seafood, sanchwiches. drinks to please any palate. Friendly, knowledgeable staff!
We had a larger party and had to take a table in side. It was a little noisy as the restaurant got busy.
Good a little pricey for what you get beautiful views nice staff tasty food amazing Bloody Mary
