Penguin Cafe

Perfect For: Breakfast Getting Out Of Town

One of Laguna Beach’s great charms is that it is somehow home to both a Tommy Bahama restaurant and old-school beach town holdouts like Penguin Cafe. (Let’s be clear: you’re not allowed to go to the Tommy Bahama restaurant. It doesn’t matter how good those ahi tuna tacos are.) This place has been open for over 40 years, and while it’s nothing more than a diner counter and a few booths, it’s awesome. Only open until 2:30pm (1:30pm on weekends), come here to get a classic American breakfast or mid-beach day burger.
