Came here on a whim. Had heard about it from friends. The food was great. Tried one of their salads, which was filling. Service was ok. Not as bad as some of the other comments. Would go back here if I were in the neighborhood.

My husband and I dropped in on this place after finding it on our mobile phone, not expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised by one of the best meals we had since moving to Laguna Beach. The service was refreshing quick and courteous.

My girls and I had lunch of Sun-dried Tomato Soup and either sandwich or salad. The soup was delish, the sandwiches/salad were fresh and lovely to look at and the service was great! Go for lunch!

Light, yummy, very good menu, beautiful restaurant, great views (it's Laguna for goodness sake) and a worthwhile experience. Enjoy the Sundried Tomato Cafe.

We attended the Laguna Arts Festival and the conceirge at the Montage recommended this restaurant. What a disappointment. The service was marginal at best and this was early before the crowds. Each of our entrees were either over cooked and seasoned beyond recognition. We were starving so perhaps it made it worse but would definitely not recommend this place to locals or visitors.

Sundried Tomato Cafe is tucked in downtown Laguna Beach, a short walk from the beach. This restaurant is known for its sundried tomato soup, but only get a cup, the bowl is massive. Most everything on the menu is great, I am partial to the salads- always fresh and creative. When in Laguna, Sundried Tomato is a great place for lunch or dinner. They even have locals specials!

This restaurant is tucked back in the corner kind of hidden but it is a great find. The atmosphere is relaxed and warm. The food and service is excellent!

I love the decor here, it creates a welcoming and cozy environment for a casual, yet upscale lunch. I had a turkey sanwich here, which was very fresh and delicious. The iced tea went well with it. The prices are reasonable as well.

As a lover of sundried tomatoes, I was drawn to Sundried Tomato Cafe through its name. We were promptly seated, but our waitress did not even begin to speak to us until 15 min after we set down. We quickly ordered our drink, and the waitress came back to take our dinner order (we later found out that she had omitted to tell us the special of the night). Between my friend and I, we had ordered the Sea Bass of Filet of Beef. Both entrees were EXCELLENT~!!! the Sea Bass was cooked just right with a special asian inspired glazed, and the Filet of Beef was tender, but still retain a meaty texture. The mushroom and onion sauce on the Filet was a great accent to the flavorful meat. We were pleasantly surprise, since the welcome was not so warm. However, after the entree, the disappointment comes again, as the waitress quickly brought us the bill without even asking if we were interested in any coffee or dessert. We ended up ordering the creme brulee anyway, which also proved to be a mistake. For a restaurant like Sundried Tomato, you would not expect the creme brulee to have a "skin" textured on the caramelized sugar. The dessert must have sat in a refrigerator inside for a long while.

So, go to Sundried tomato cafe for the food, skip dessert, and try to overlook the service mishap :)

Sundried tomato cafe in Laguna and San Juan for that matter, is an all around positive experience. Our first dinining experience was last summer and being a local oc residents we do not go to downtown laguna in the summer. But we were meeting friends and family and they chose the restaurant. From the hostess with the bubbly personality to the waiter who was congenial and knowledgeable , we had an exceptional experience. The sevice was prompt, and the food was amazing, the sundried tomato soup, spring rolls, and my salad sampler could not of been better. We now go weekly either to the Laguna restaurant or the San Juan restaurant, and the experience has always been very postive. Try the seabas with teriyaki aioli or the lamb burger!

Had lunch with four girlfriends. Heard the soup was good, whoever told me was wrong... it was GREAT! However, the service was really bad, no matter how good the soup was we all left with a bad taste in our mouths, not to return. Too many other places to choose from in Laguna.
