This is an awesome place to go. Definitely the coldest beer and the food is great. The cookies are phenomenal. Their happy hour is great and at a decent price. Totally recommend this place.

Ordered a custom cake from Rockwells for a baby shower. Wow it was such a hit! First..logistics were easy the cake menu is posted on the counter and they are flexible about the combinations. I ordered a custom cake that combined some baby booties in sugar and really gorgeous flowers in combinations of pink. The outcome was gorgeous. They made it easy to transport by taping the top just right to prevent bumps. The cake is on a white paper cardboard stand if you did not have a cake plate you could get away without it. Most importantly the cake was delicious including icing. It was ready when requested.  Highly recommend Rockwells for custom cakes. Everybody took a picture..the cake was devoured which hardly happens at a shower...and I gave out their name a dozen times because this cake was so pretty and sophisticated..really an exceptional product. Thank you! More...

This place was hot and poppin'! Sunday morning brunch and there is no wait at 10am but as the hour passed it got much busier. Great food, service was good. Coffee is good and the food is amazing! (Try the corned beef hash) amazing!! The dessert case looks like it's filled with many tasty items from pastries to cupcakes to cakes, etc. They have many daily deals/entertainment happenings and live music on some nights. I read taco Tuesday even! If you live nearby or want a great spot to eat I suggest here. More...

Cozy ol' Villa Park establishment across the street from grandmas house. Great for breakfast (chicken fried chicken w/ Cajun potatoes), great for dinner (big juicy burger w/ fries). Live music on the weekend night was quite a nice surprise. More...

We came here on a Saturday morning for the car n coffee event. We have a Chevy c-10 68'. I was starving so we sat to eat. The first hostess, (didn't catch her name, had a long pony tail) was so sweet . Automatically asked us if we wanted "java". I loved it! Our server came over "Courtney" she was amazing! So cheery! I could tell they were very short staffed but she didn't seem to allow it to get to her. She was apologizing for the wait, but there was none. Our drinks and food came out perfect! Courtney checked on us serval times prior to another great server (male) coming to help us! Both we beyond great! Food was amazing, drink exceptional. I highly recommend the breakfast and pastries! Hope to come back when these serves are here! More...

I've been 3 times in 3 days! Day one, I had the Hawaiian Brioche French Toast and coffee. It was very tasty but unfortunately it was served warm, not hot. We were a party of six and as far as I could tell everyone loved their breakfast choices. My friend ordered the huevos rancheros and loved it! The service was fast and friendly. Since the first visit I've also enjoyed their bran muffins, bear claws, and bacon and cheese croissants. More...

After a disappointing first experience with a quest for cupcakes, the owner reached out after my original review. She was very apologetic and offered to hand deliver the cupcakes we had originally gone to the bakery for, which was very much appreciated. We arranged to pick them up at the bakery instead and didn't have to pay, which we thought of as a good compensation for the strangeness of the first encounter. The cupcakes were delicious and we were so happy to learn that when you write a review on Yelp you aren't just shouting into the void. Bad reviews on Yelp obviously hurt a business like this, so glad to know that problems are being addressed and amends being offered. More...

Our family trollied up here last Friday night, nice surprise that there was a live band playing a super fun mix of music!  The food was good, even had vegan options ! The cocktails were great, the bartender Courtney was fun and personable! The atmosphere is great here, my teenagers and my parents love it. Also the desserts are delicious and there are always vegan treats. More...

I've been wanting to try this place for years & almost did not because the ratings are a little discouraging. I honestly don't know what anyone could complain about? Stopped in for late lunch with my husband and immediately served and doted on! Service was impeccable and food amazing. Definitely going back for dinner & breakfast. More...

I had to have a truly excellent carrot cake for my son-in-law’s birthday. Google said Rockwell’s had the best carrot cake in Orange County. I agree! I walked in & was greeted by a BEAUTIFUL young woman!!! She answered all my questions & let me get a sample piece. Then her partner a young man got my whole cake: 8” w/ 3 layers—extra thick cream cheese frosting between layers—plus artist birthday greeting on top! The sample was heavenly! I let my daughter & granddaughter eat half of my single piece. They said, “Best they ever had!” Agreed! I will return to Rockwell’s soon. I wanna see that beautiful receptionist again—and get more cake too, of course! Jerry S—Irvine More...

We have had breakfast here after the car show and twice this week. Food is so tasty and reasonably priced. The bacon and sausage are delicious as are those canon potatoes! The Kiki Toast is great as well. The baked goods do not disappoint. All 3 servers have been exceptionally nice. They could be more attentive on our drinks and making sure we have condiments. With that said, we think it is the best breakfast spot in town. The portions are very generous too. More...

Not from the area but ate here for breakfast before a competition I had that was at the high school down the street. The menu was simple and had the usual Cali/American breakfast. My teammate had the eggs Benedict, my couch had the surfers breakfast (bacon, eggs, squaw bread) and I had poached eggs on avocado squaw toast with fruit. The squaw bread was so delicious and had a thick lather of mashed avocado on top with a perfect poached egg and a drizzle of olive oil. I didn't know how something so simple could taste truly amazing! As for the side of fruit I was impressed I had a variety of fruit and not your usual melon and pineapple you get from other breakfast spots.The place itself is on the far end of the outlets plaza (which yelp made it confusing where it would be located). The place is fairly sized with an option of outdoor and indoor seating. Wish I had more time to scope the desserts and baked goods but only got a glimpse on my way to the restroom (which was very clean).The only reason I gave this spot 4 stars is bec as an athlete water is extremely important especially before competition. With that being said, the waitress did not stop by to refill our tiny glasses of water. Other than that place is quaint and perfect for breakfast. More...

Absolutely love this place ! My husband and I grabbed pastries here on our way home from Orange County one night , after we stopped to let our kiddos stretch their legs at the outlet mall. Little did we know how amazing they would be. We lucked out and hit the "happy hour" time and ended up getting some of them 1/2 price which make it even better. I can honestly say, the croissants were the best ones I've ever had in my life , and my husband said the cannoli was truly amazing and the best ever. I also loved they had some vegan options, as my son can't have dairy . He was able to enjoy a brownie which made everyone happy . We ended up coming back a few more times just for the pastries , then decided to dine in and have dinner one evening . Best food we have ever had!!! I got a burger and my husband got s sandwich. We both devoured everything ! Can't wait to go back. Yummmm More...

I will say I Love Rockwell's  Cafe in Orange and bought my wedding cake from them many years ago.  Anyway I recently learned they opened at the outlets in San Clemente.  I'm going to say their desserts are more than reasonably priced at only $3 a cupcake.  Compared to other local cafes that cost more and are smaller portions... I tried the Confetti cupcake, a lemon bar and a snickerdoodle cookie.. all were fresh and soft.  Today I went in to try the food with a friend.  The service was prompt friendly and nice.  Our food came out hot and my coffee was refilled timely.   I had breakfast basic eggs, toast, bacon side of avocado... my friend had the salmon salad and verde posole soup... all looked amazing and tasted great!! I hope more people go there because I'm tired of all the other over priced boring breakfast spots in town.... Thank you Rockwell's I will return soon! More...

Same day custom cake. Got the chocolate fudge cake for husbands birthday. We are a chocolate family and it was perfect. However our guest found it in the sweet side and couldn't even eat it all (then again the all have diabetes lol) my husband and i were very satisfied but if you want somethibg less sweet then i wouldnt recommend this. If you are a ln extreme chocolate lover like us then thisnis your cake. Service was great. More...

This review is strictly for their cinnamon roll. I just wanted a sweet bakery item that was not at a chain coffee store or restaurant. I remember seeing all of their bakery items before in their bakery case so I decided to come over and see if they had a cinnamon roll which they did. It's probably the size of a small salad plates maybe, 7 inches across. I arrived just after 8 AM and it was freshly made. However I didn't actually eat it until later in the day and I still found it soft, flavorful and not dry. There was just the right amount of sweetness and cinnamon flavor. I would've liked maybe a tiny bit more icing on top or even the side, but it was still good nonetheless, and at $3 I thought it was a very fair value. The server who assisted me was friendly and helpful. I wish they also had the option of the mini ones which i think I've seen off their food truck. More...

Okay I came here on a Friday morning and was amazed by their array of pastries!! They had so many different kinds of cakes, cookies and muffins-I felt like I was in heaven. What makes them so unique is their interesting combination of being a bar, restaurant and bakery. I scanned their menu and saw multiple items I would be willing to try, but I only came in for breakfast so I got a coffee and two of their glazed upside down stuffed muffins. They didn't have an exact name for this pastry, but that is what I would best describe it as, and see my picture for a better idea. I got the the carrot cake and the bran muffin which were both stuffed with cream cheese. I also ordered a coffee, and my total came out to $8. Not bad at all, and the muffins were unreal! I'd never had such a thing, and I will gladly be returning here anytime I can to try the rest of their beautiful pastries! More...

Solid spot for breakfast and happy hour! It's located at the west-most end of the San Clemente Outlets. Spacious dog-friendly patio out front that even has heaters for the colder days . Great stop for drinks to loosen you up before opening up your wallet for mall shopping. So far, they are the only spot at the outlet mall with a full bar .The bloody Mary's and mimosas are delicious for a weekend morning. But if you are going to eat, I'd recommend doing that after shopping because you are going to be too full and tired to shop ! The service can be somewhat hit or miss. I've had great service here , but then other times the food can take a long time and I've felt almost forgotten. I'm usually so exhausted from shopping and just  happy to be relaxing with my pup on the patio, so it's never really bothered me, but I can see how some might be impatient. For breakfast, try the Kiki's Toast (avocado toast with a poached egg and lemon pepper) or the Eggs Benedict or Breakfast Burrito. Breakfast portions are quite large, so you can easily share if you don't want to be stuffed so full that you can't walk around the mall.Happy hour boasts some good prices on craft beers and cocktails that are pretty average for the most part. I would stick to the beer / wine. The happy hour menu starts early - 2pm on Saturday afternoon- score !! For Happy Hour bites - the fried dill pickle chips are cut like classic fries and are a fun dish to share. They feed 2-3 people in a small silver bucket. The pork sliders and cheeseburger sliders are a great value at $7 and are big enough for a lighter meal for one person.  Skip the nachos - they have a weird , unforgivable cheese sauce on them that makes you actually feel like it's totally possible to screw up nachos, something I didn't think possible. Overall a great addition to the mall , have a great dog friendly vibe and a full bar ! I recommend for those looking to kick back and relax, but not if you are in a hurry. More...

This place is popular with the locals. It's a coffee-shop, bakery and bar all rolled into one. The bakery offers many different types of bake goods. I have never tasted their cakes but their customized selections looked really impressive. The breakfast and lunch menu are pretty good. Service is sort of slow, hence, the 4 stars. The bar area looks really cozy and they even have an outside patio area. More...

Thank you so much for the incredible cake! It was a huge hit! The flavors, the quality and the service overall amazing. When I went to go pick up the cake they were on top of it having someone help me load it in my very low car. Their restaurant always has some great food also! This is my second cake from here well done as always and of course first review sorry... More...

Giving Rockwell's five star for their customer service. This was my fist time ordering from them. I placed an order for a cake for my husband's birthday at their satellite location inside Watson's. There was a mishap with the pickup location but the staff at the Villa Park location were very helpful and apologetic and provided complimentary cupcakes. The cake was delicious and definitely buying again from them in the future. More...

We were looking for a lunch spot while our car charged and this a perfect mix of convenience and food selection. The menu was typical diner food with a few unique options--California Benedict, which I ended up ordering. It was tasty! Pancakes, club sandwich, and a cheeseburger rounded out or table. Everything was great--not fine dining--it's mall food, after all, but it hit the spot as a road trip stop. We also ordered a cinnamon roll to go because breakfast pastries are 50% off between 2 and 6! You can't go wrong with a giant cinnamon roll for a$1.50! Service was not fast, go in with a leisurely attitude and you won't be disappointed. More...

This bakery is incredible!  Love the cafe, as well.  But I'm reviewing my most recent cake order from the bakery.  We had a whale-themed baby shower on Sunday; and they made us a marble cake that was a work of art - and decadently delicious!  How often does that happen?  Actually, at Rockwells it ALWAYS happens.  They have created cakes that look like cars, one that looked like a putting green on a golf course, and even one as a miniature model of our new car dealership.  Show them a photo - and they can make a cake.  The exceptional part is how delicious they are!  I have taken large pieces to people who did not SEE the cake - and they still asked where in the world I bought such an incredibly rich, moist and delicious cake.  Whatever your event, whatever your imagination, whatever your taste - Rockwells can create it - and you end up looking like a ROCK STAR!

Love it! It's Become my regular spot for Sunday Breakfast. It's unique seating areas are great for family, sports and just sitting outside. I'm specially interested in the bakery offerings. Just walk in and take a gaze at the multitudE of cookies breads pastries etc. The menu is easy straightforward and my favorite is for sure the Chilaquiles. I recommend Omelettes and various other morning favorites. I do not write reviews until I have visited more than 3 times. It's just my opinion that I should be fair and certain about what I experience. Thank you all at Rockwell's and we'll see you tomorrow Sunday. Cheers, NRS More...

SOOO good!  If you read a recent post I did on Rubys Diner HB, avocado toast, you know how disappointed I was. Today I tried the same dish at Rockwells. OMG it was SO good! Perfect flavor, plenty of food, prepared beautifully. Server Erica was great, attentive and friendly. I will definitely be back. In fact, a couple hours after I had the Kiki Avocado Toast, I actually DID go back and had their chocolate dipped cannoli. I'm a bit of a cannoli snob, but this one makes my list of top TWO. I wish a Rockwells would open closer to Garden Grove. It's a long drive to San Clemente with the OC traffic. But I will surely go again. There are several things on the menu I want to try. THANK YOU ROCKWELL'S! More...

Nice menu. They had a soft opening before Christmas and now it is a fantastic place that needs to be seen. Fresh desserts daily. Get the cannoli (vanilla or chocolate) or a lemon bar. I saw Spicy cauliflower and was told it wan't too spicy.  It was fantastic. I went back the next day and found that some of the appetizers are on dale for$5 from 3-6. My neighbor and I ordered something's to go and I asked about fried pickles. Courtney, an employee ordered some for herself and let us try them. That's not something I could eat an order if all by myself, but having the opportunity to sample something.....she went above and beyond with customer service. It's just south of Nike and Converse. Nice looking bars and quite a few TV screens. Menu is nice. Very friendly staff. More...

Very cool spot in the Outlet Mall.  A bakery?  A cafe?  A bar?   Yes.  All three.  A very nice spot to grab coffee and dessert.  Also a great place to get a cold beer.  I prefer the beers myself. Lots of local beers and super cold.  I know it's cold because they display the temperature right above the taps.  Jessica the Manager is super cool.  Can't wait to come back!!! More...

Wow! Best meal we have had since we have been in CA on vacation and it's at the Outlet Mall! Best fried pickles ever (kinda like fries, had a little kick), yummy fish & chips (too full to eat the chips), interesting local beer (guava) and very friendly competent service. As an added bonus, the sun is shining(been raining since we arrived) More...

I've been coming here since high school and the bakery is just as good now as over a decade ago. I can't say much about the food in the cafe as I've only sat down to eat there once or twice and remember it being decent- nothing special just your usual breakfast items but the bakery is delicious! I love their honey walnut bran muffin. For how good it is I can't believe it is healthy or partly healthy at least with the ingredients in the name. The brownie, magic bar, and pecan roll are also excellent choices. Each item is bigger than the next so you definitely get your money's worth. My husband and I eat them over the course of a few days and honestly they are just as good when you eat them as leftovers which you'll have to since they are hefty in size! If you're craving something baked and sweet- head to Rockwell's! More...

It’s a bar, a restaurant, and a bakery with a fire pit on the patio! The only thing that would make it better is if they’d allow dogs. Get the white box cake with raspberry between the layers and sit in Marissa’s section for the best service. More...

Great food, great vibes, excellent staff - a great time! HAPPY HOUR 7 DAYS A WEEK! Fried pickles!

This place is amaze! The breakfast burrito (add bacon, of course) is the best I've had yet. The staff was super friendly, Courtney is a love. Loves her job you can tell. The apple muffin was excellent and all the other baked goods looked super good. Nice patio to relax in the sun. Well done! More...

This 5 star review is actually for our server Courtney. I would give the food 4 stars, but Courtney's amazing attitude drives my review to 5 stars and it keeps us coming back. The food is good and the variety is nice. They have a full bar and if you like breakfast, they serve it all day. Thanks Courtney, we will see you again soon. More...

The food was very good, If you're seated, at the Bar, be sure remind Courtney that her tag is showing on her shirt. Fun place, a welcome to San Clemente. Hopefully they can hold a spot out front for me, if we bring our 32 Deuce Coupe during the car show, on Sat? Also was pleasantly surprised there was even a peek of view of the ocean. Indoor and outdoor seating obviously, we chose to sit at the bar because it was crowded, where Courtney whipped up a nice coffee drink for my wife, it was cold and rainy hit the spot. So hope it succeeds and that the staffing is equally competent in a year from now. It's not the same kind of vib, but they do have a nice bakery section (custom cakes) and maybe they could fill the niche that Ellie left? PS  Will be back a 3rd time, the second was to pick up my jug that Courtney kindly save for me. Godspeed. More...

Ordered breakfast sandwich and boyfriend said it was good, but the potatoes were not fully cooked. I had a veggie wrap which was super dry and lacked flavor. The fries that came with it were tasty though. I also ordered some bakery items and we only ate one of the two items which was a pecan cinnamon type item. It was good, but a little dry. More...

BABY WHAT A BIG SURPRISE! This was about our 3rd trip to this outlet mall and on each previous visit we have had lunch or dinner off the site probably down near the San Clemente Pier because there was nothing here that resembled an interesting cafe.  This time after finishing our shopping mission we decided to have a crack at this new Rockwell's  eatery which I found online. It was a short walk from the Levi's Outlet store where we had just shopped. I was pleasantly surprised when we walked up to the front entrance around 1pm to see quite a few diners here which is always a good sign. The model is full table service so we found a table inside as it was bit chilly outside. Having said that there is also a huge covered front patio with heaters everywhere. We ordered our lunch when a server named Melissa came to check on us. While sitting there we felt a bit chilly from a cold breeze blowing in the open front door so we relocated to a sunny table on the patio right beside a blazing heater. Soon after our lunch order arrived courtesy of Melissa. My wife chose a Ret's California Chicken Sandwich ...grilled chicken etc on sourdough which was grilled perfectly & came with a bowl of huge hand cut golden brown fries. I had decided on a Classic Club....... roasted turkey breast, bacon etc on sourdough which was grilled to perfection + the largest golden brown onion rings I've ever seen. We were happy with large glasses of iced water for drinks. We both thought our sandwiches tasted outstanding...fresh good quality ingredients stacked a mile high. Our fries and onion rings tasted sensational....nothing reheated here and they tasted even better when Melissa dropped off some home made ranch dressing for dipping. Somehow my wife still had space in her tiny tummy to eat a large Chocolate Chip Cookie for dessert ..... it tasted very fresh. I was told earlier that they bake all their cakes, cookies etc in house. I would have liked a hot latte or cappuccino with my meal but sadly they only serve drip filter coffee or regular tea. There is a huge bar occupying one end of the eatery which no doubt gets crowded later in the evening. I noticed a few eclectic beer choices on the beverage menu so they have thought about things a bit. We were very very happy with the prompt friendly service, our meal quality and the very comfortable surroundings. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an enjoyable lunch or dinner! More...

My family and I first stumbled in here about a week after it opened and we were very pleasantly surprised by the food quality. We ended coming in several more times within the following two weeks because we enjoyed it so much (plus, you know...women and shopping). We even caused an issue because we asked for an order to be boxed up before it was even served, but everyone was so accommodating and friendly.Jessica is one of those next-level managers who just totally gets it and will no doubt lead this place into success. And the staff has all been properly trained and has customer service as it's top priority. The wings here are our new favorite, and the blackened chicken pasta is one of those dishes that you'll crave for weeks after.The only thing we haven't had here yet is breakfast, but we definitely plan to remedy that in the near future. The layout leaves a little to be desired, but don't let that sway you, you'll thoroughly enjoy the food and experience here. More...

Came here on a cold rainy morning a while back and had breakfast. The Hawaiian Brioche French toast was AMAZING and the biscuits and gravy were equally good. I would definitely recommend both of these items! We were the only people in the restaurant and the girl who waited on us was very attentive. We sat over by the cake case and I have to say the display cake with the white frosting strawberries looked extremely yummy... I will definitely keep this place in mind for the next occasion that needs a cake! More...

This is a new restaurant and I happened to see it when at the Outlets. On that day I had breakfast there and it was very yummy.  I am vegan and had the brulee'd oatmeal and a side of the Cajun country potatoes (wedges of roasted red potatoes with a not-too-spicy seasoning).  Both were good and the service I had was excellent. I took home a vegan chocolate cookie which was like a chewy browny (yum!).  My boyfriend and I came back for Dinner that Friday night and had a good meal.  It wasn't too crowded because it is still undiscovered, but the good tables were full so we sat at the bar.  The patio doesn't yet have heat lamps so it too cold for outside this time of year (December).  He had the chicken pot pie and loved it (great crust).  I am vegan and asked if they could make a burger with the veg pattie that they use in the Mediterranean wrap as it didn't say veg burger anywhere on the menu.  When it came out I thought hey had mistakenly used a meat patty, then the manager explained that they serve the "Impossible Burger", which was amazing and vegan! It was the best plant based burger patty I have had. It closely resembled the flavor and chewy texture of a well-done burger patty. (Unfortunately, they didn't yet have a vegan bun option -it was brioche-, but I hope they will soon.  Good news too for vegetarians, they serve breakfast all day.  So my boyfriend got his comfort food and I ate mostly vegan.  And the drinks were good too. Prices were reasonable.  We spoke at length with the manager who really knows her business. I hope they continue to expand the menu and get patrons.  Rockwell's is a good addition to the San Clemente food scene. More...

The Shops at San Clemente really needed this fun, dog-friendly restaurant with excellent food. The decor is charming and airy and it has a very large patio with plenty of room for our canine friends and family. But the food was really a pleasure! I had their delicious and generously-sized kale chicken Caesar salad with champagne vinaigrette dressing, and my husband enjoyed his favorite onion and cheese omelette. My chicken was juicy, flavorful and freshly grilled. I swear that omelette must've been made out of XXL eggs because hubby couldn't finish it - a rare occurrence indeed. Now we are headed to the bakery side... More...

We've been here twice and about to go a third time. So far just for dinner or happy hour, but we're trying breakfast this morning. We've really enjoyed everything so far. The staff, especially the manager, are great. The food is good to great, depending on what you get. And I love that they welcome my sweet puppy with open arms. Great to be able to support a small local business at the outlets. Breakfast Update: we had a third great experience today! Hubby and I split the Hawaiian French toast and the breakfast burrito with steak and both were delicious. Our pups got some plain scrambled eggs and a whole lot of love. It can be really hard opening a second location, especially at a distance, but the food, concept and team all have what it takes. Let's give them some support! More...

Stopped in for dinner on a whim with my parents and had a fabulous time. Our server Michele was warm, friendly and super helpful navigating the menu. She indicated the whole menu (including breakfast) is served all day. We started with the fried pickles on her recommendation and they were awesome.  I had eggs Benedict, my mom the fish and chips and my dad the juevos rancheros. All was very delicious. Interesting beer and wine by the glass available. This place is in the way back of the mall by the Nike store. Hope lots of people come so it stays in business. More...

Ok, was totally shocked how good this place is. Currently has a smaller menu, but nice variety. I had the chicken pot pie and it was delish. My husband grabbed mine and finished it.  His fish and chips were fresh. The chips ho early needed another 3 minutes in the fryer for out taste but we will order it that way next time. Better wine list than most small restaurants and their well liquors are high end. The service couldn't have been sweeter or more entertaining We also met great people at the bar. We will definitely be back. More...

There was good deal on drinks with buy one get one free.  There were 5 dollar deals on food too.  We got 2 orders of sliders and 1 order of tacos.  the burgers were excellent, flavorful, and fresh tasting.  Tacos had spicy salsa on it that gave it a nice kick.  Most of the customers and and staff all seem to know each other and it gives you a feeling of going to a hometown bar.  Overall, it seems like to a great place to hangout, get a drink and bite to eat.

This concept is prime, since it's kid friendly, spacious with a beautiful view of the beaches of San Clemente, and has a wide array of irresistible pastries.

SUPER jazzed to have a new restaurant at the Outlets, especially one with a specialty bakery!!  First week opening, so definitely settling in.  BUT!  The food was OUTSTANDING.   The nachos were different and tasty.  The chicken on my grilled chicken avocado sandwich was cooked perfectly.  Everyone was super friendly.  Service is the area to dial in from my experience.  No appetizer plates with the nachos.  We requested lemon with the ice tea and didn't receive any.  Refills were slow with statements that they were coming, but didn't until asked again.  So again, service details being worked out.   We will definitely be back!

This has always been my go-to for any baked goods. My family ordered custom sugar cookies and a cake for my grandparent's 50th-anniversary party. It was delicious. Every bit of it. And me, having a sweet tooth will stop by at least once or even twice a week for those sugar cookies that I fell in love with. Now let me tell you about these little heavenly cookies, normally when you get a sugar cookie that has royal icing piped on, when the cookie dries, the entire cookie is hard as a rock. Not these cookies, not only is the cookie itself soft and chewy, the icing isn't rock hard which, to this day, I still have no idea how they do it. And even with the icing being soft, its still hard enough so the design isn't ruined if you stack them. Rockwell's keep up the great work!!! More...

Words can express how much the people helped me get my boyfriends cake on time. They did an excellent job to have the cake within 4 days. The cake was 14" and it serve more than 50 people. My boyfriend is a big fanatic of soccer and this was the cherry on top of the cake for him lol  he absolutely loved the taste and the cake! Thank you for making his day special in such a short notice! More...

I have to admit, we've had some of the same mediocre experiences as previously mentioned... inattentive staff, so-so food, etc. HOWEVER, this review is for the last 2 Sunday evenings we've had dinner here! The service was AMAZING both times! The food was good too but the service blew us away. More...

Wonderful breakfast! Enjoyed the Norman's Breakfast sandwich and my mom got their banana nut muffin & bacon out on their patio. Perfection all around! We were the only ones on the patio, and Jennifer was our server. She is so friendly, accommodating, and on top of the service!! Thank you! More...

The nice folks at Rockwell's came through for us at the last minute, following a very kind recommendation from another first-rate cake shop. We ordered a carrot cake the day before for a dual-birthday event, and it was SUPER good. Dense, packed with flavor, yummy icing and filling, and tasted super fresh. Customer service on the phone was fabulous and there was no issue picking it up during their busy lunch hour on a Saturday. Thank you, Rockwells! We'll be back! More...

This is probably the best bakery+bar in town. Rockwell's is always my go-to when it comes to desserts and drinks. The night scene is great here at Rockwell's. My go-to is the Moscow mule and a sirloin.I'll be back again. More...

I am a big fan of Rockwell's. The first time I remember having them was at my mother got married to my step-dad, the wedding cake was done by them. It was phenomenal! Now that they moved to this location from Tustin is awesome. Now I can walk a few blocks and have some of their great cakes and deserts. I totally recommend that you try their cakes of any type. They are all very moist and full of favor. Also, their cupcakes are tasty too. More...

A wonderful place for breakfast.  All the staff is cheerful and helpful, with a special shout-out to Hana and Heidi.  After you eat, you can grab a pastry suitable for the cover of Better Homes and Gardens.

First time eating here, had gotten their desserts before (delicious) and the food was sooo good!! All table conversations came to a halt once our food came and for a yummy reason! ! Outstanding service. Was too busy eating to capture pics of all the food, but here's their chicken pot pie. More...

My friend raves about their cupcakes. Went in to buy a couple, while in doing so, there's a waitress with the most uninviting, unfriendly, pout on her face. Too bad this kind of business has employees like this working for them. This small business could be such a jem. More...

We just went for coffee and dessert, I was expecting a coffee choice other that regular or decaf, and the bakery didn't have a menu to look at, at the table.  It's more of a bar scene than a bakery.  Service and food was good More...

Came here after a soccer game with a large group. Reservations were made and we were seated promptly. Service was friendly and attentive the entire stay. They have a descent selection of beer, wine and cocktails. I had the Prime Rib Panini with fries and an IPA. The sandwich was very good and the fries were standard. We were seated close to the bakery and the entire time during our dinner there was a line. Didn't try any desert, but will have to go back to try something from the bakery. Plenty of parking.

I took my daughter to Rockwell's in Villa Park for her 21st birthday breakfast. This was our first time, but definitely not our last!  My family thoroughly enjoyed the food and our server, Diane, was awesome. Diane helped to make my daughter's birthday even more special and that was very appreciated.  We will be returning very soon! More...

Great Place. I come here every Sunday morning and this place replaced iHop for me. I drive all the way from Newport Beach and it is worth it. Everything is very reasonably priced, much cheaper than iHop. For me, the best thing is the iced tea and the French Toast. I highly recommend! More...

Came in Sunday around 4pm to watch some football and have a beer. Sat in the bar area and was promptly greeted with a welcoming smile by a server named Marissa. She was funny, engaging, and sweet with a positive attitude despite the crowd. My friends and I will definitely becoming back for more football, drinks, and awesome A+ service! More...

The service was fantastic! I don't recall the name of our server, but she was there around 1:30pm on Friday (Veteran's Day). She served my friend and I and our 4 collective children all 6 and under. She anticipated all of our needs and made sure the moms got to relax a little. It really was a great experience which eating out with small children rarely is. Thank you so much Rockwell's! More...

I like rockwells a lot. I like the food and the coziness of the restaurant and most of all drooling over the bakery cases. I had to wait a bit for a friend to meet me and watched three girls laying on the bakery cases with nothing to do while dust accumulated in the corners. When I worked in a restaurant if you had time to lean you had time to clean. More...

Amazing Bakery! Thanks for helping us with the most perfect chocolate cake for my Dad's fifty  and over the hill birthday bash. ROCKWELL's has the yummiest recipe on the face of the earth.! I believe we ordered some fruit tarts too and those were also very good. :) More...

Be patient and be careful of your customized cake if the box doesnt close due to an ornamentation or candied decoration poking out. The bakers here have great talent and definitely impressed. But i should say order at least one size less than you're recommended. Eg if you have a party of 16, get the 8" cale NOT 10" like i did. Unless you want 1/4-1/5 of the cake leftover to store for 2 weeks. Anywho.. dont know how the restaurant runs but balery and customization wise, FANTASTIC. More...

Nice comfortable family restaurant, good food, funky decor and a little loud. Of course, we had a kids baseball team next to us!  We came to hear a musician friend entertain in the bar, but had dinner first in the dining area. My husband had fish and chips and I had short rib Panini. A really nice patio area, looked very relaxing. The bar is nice to watch sports! More...

Ordered a birthday cake and got a beautiful and delicious cake.  It was for a small get together (about 10 people) so I ordered the 8" round.  The cake was ready when promised and they made sure they got the spelling of the name right.  I ordered white cake with raspberry mouse filling and light whip cream frosting and it was covered with large white and dark chocolate shavings. Everyone loved it! More...

I've been here twice for breakfast and I love this restaurant! Delicious food and great prices. What I love is that you can ask for substitutions and customize your entree. For example, I ordered the 2 eggs with any style bacon. I got fruit instead of potatoes (didn't know that was an option) and opted for crispy bacon. The waitress even asked if I wanted butter on my toast. Usually breakfast/brunch places don't ask me for my preferences. The omelets are delicious, especially the Spartan (ton of meat) and the spinach and mushroom. I'll be back! More...

This place is amazing. Simple, Delicious.They have best pineapple bun in state. I can literally go to this place and easy walk out with a pink box of bread. Guaranteed that it would be finished within a day. Their "pineapple bun with butter" is the best and its taste is exact what I ate in Hong Kong. If you're ever in the area, this is winner. More...

I go to this restaurant almost every day to get my breakfast to go. Like everyone else, my mornings are crazy and most of the time I'm running late. I'm giving this restaurant 5 stars because the girls that work in the morning (Diane and Heidi) make it easy for me. They are always friendly and welcoming and make me feel like they appreciate my business. Villa Park is a small town and they are what gives Rockwells that small town feeling. Keep up the good work ladies and see you tomorrow:-) More...
