"Love it here! First of all the staff is amazing. Always super kind and helpful and fast. Every bit of food I've ever gotten here is amazing. There's a reason this place is always packed, it's because it's worth it. I am totally addicted to the turkey focaccia sandwich.  Coffee is great too."

"Found this place on yelp and immediately excited about it due to the not only amazing prices but also gorgeous interior. Well, I was not in the slightest disappointed. The interior of the cafe is not only stunning but also welcoming and cozy. The staff was so incredibly nice and friendly and the food was so delicious. I got a breakfast burrito with green salsa and a honey vanilla latte and to say I ate it quickly would be an understatement. We sat outside on the porch and enjoyed our brunch with great satisfaction. Then we got some free cookies from the all-too-sweet employee who was so kind. I will be coming back again and again!  You've got yourself a fan! Highly recommend!"

"This is probably the favorite place I've eaten at in Orange County. It was so good that we ate there twice. The honey vanilla latte is 10/10. ORDER THE BREAKFAST POTATOES!!!!!!!!!!! AND THE EGGS!!!"

"So who's ever heard of Kouign Amann? I never had until recently, then I saw an ad for Ellie's Table and not only did they have it, but theirs is filled with creme brûlée! What??? Oh my stars!!! So delicious, I can't wait to go back!!!"

"Stopped by Ellie's Table while charging our car. Fantastic coffee and pastries and their chai tea was delicious. Had standard breakfast combo and my husband had an omelet. Both delicious! Bacon was crisp and pastries were to die for. A must go when in San Juan Capistrano!"

"I think it's a great spot for lunch or coffee! Beautiful building and nice sitting patio. The broccoli salad and macarons are my favorite. I think their macarons are the best in OC!"

"What's not to love? Ellie's is absolutely delicious!!! Everything is always good! The service is friendly and the atmosphere is always casual and comfortable. Their quiche is to die for and their salads are healthy and yummy!"

"In addition to tasty salads, the vegan muffins, vegan soy-chorizo, and nondairy milk are much needed and appreciated options here in SJC/San Clemente. Thank you!
Ellie's offers a charming, casual atmosphere, both indoors with the yellow & grey cheery color scheme and gleaming displays of baked goods as well as outdoors overlooking the ocean. It's a gem in our city and a fav stop whenever I have visitors in town."

"Pastries, coffees, salad and egg white burritos - everyone was very satisfied with their choices! The seating - upstairs or outside is very pleasant and the prices very reasonable."

"Cute little cafe inside the historical building, great offerings and selections of pastries, salads and sandwiches.  Love the giant cup of large coffee, just the way I love to have it!"
