Contemporary American
Built in 1927, Fig@313 stands today as an original historical landmark of San Clemente, with a history that is meant to be shared with its seaside community. Carefully constructed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, distinctive design features include red-tile roofs, white stucco walls, hand-crafted windows and arches, painted tiles, and open-air courtyards. Originally owned for the first 33 years by John and Jeanette Riley, 313 El Camino Real was renowned as Riley’s Waffle and Coffee Shop. Legend has it that actor John Wayne frequented the restaurant for a hearty American breakfast along with many travelers from all over the world. From 1960 on, Riley’s Café would change ownership many times, evolving into a furniture store, French restaurant, tequila company, and catering business. In 2012, the current owners purchased the property and began renovations and restoration, while staying true to the integrity of the original style.

My girlfriend and I went there and we had a great dinner. We each got the fresh fish which was the sea bass. It was prepared really great. The host was great and he told us about the brunch that you will be doing. Our waiter was James who was excellent. Looking forward to going back with my husband

Our first time there on the weekend and it was a a bit of a disappointment. The food was stellar as always however the service was definitely not what we were used to. The tables were far too tight indoors and we were constantly bumped by other guests and servers getting through and around tables. The waiter was extremely slow and the timing of appetizers, salads, entree’s was all screwed up. Never again on a weekend.

A perfect place for dinner in San Clemente. Fabulous food, especially the short ribs and fig salad. The servers were friendly and attentive. We will definitely return.
