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...

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...

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...

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...
