While all of our cuisine is tantalizing, locals have come to associate Ellie’s with our incomparable bakery—and especially our Butter Croissant, Ellie’s house specialty. The buzz around our bakery stems directly from our French pâtissier’s love of the innovative, and his passion for the timeless. Chef Christophe bakes every morning and our menu reflects his daily inspiration. All of his creations are out of this world and range from down-home favorites to twists on well-known classics and originally-incepted treats.
Our menu is designed with a remembrance for some of our founders’ favorite dishes, like Jay’s Famous Cheese Roll Palm Sandwiches and Ellie’s Potato Salad. Our chefs are dedicated to creating sumptuous, aromatic food that resonates with every palate while still pushing the borders of typical café cuisine. From Flat Iron Steaks to Quinoa Wraps, our menu consists of dishes that appeal to a wide range of appetites.
All of our food is made fresh and from scratch on the day that it is ordered. We use sustainable ingredients whenever possible and consider delivering simple, clean foods with bold flavors to be our motto and mission. We’re also happy to accommodate special dietary needs whenever possible, and offer a wide variety of Gluten-Free, Vegan, Vegetarian, and Heart Healthy items.
Ellie’s Table currently has two cafés that are dedicated to bringing the very best in cuisine and beverages to the San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano communities. Since opening our doors at North Beach in November of 2013, we are proud to say that Ellie’s has become a local hotspot, where residents and tourists alike enjoy delicious food and drink in a welcoming, beautiful environment.
Our passionate baristas use freshly-roasted and environmentally-conscious Kean coffee beans to hand-craft every drink. Besides providing a full espresso bar, we offer delicious teas, tea lattes, and hand-picked bottled beverages from all over the world. Our cuisine is artisan-crafted as well. Whether you are in the mood for a freshly-baked pastry in the morning or a cup of homemade soup in the afternoon, our food is diverse and pairs perfectly with our refreshing beverages. ELLIE'S TABLE AT NORTH BEACH Daily Hours: 6AM - 2PM
