Dining Guide for Families in Orange County

The Stuft Surfer Cafe in Newport Beach


I’ve been eating at The Stuft Surfer Cafe in Newport Beach since I was just a little kid. Now, I get to bring my kids to this historic Orange County restaurant for delicious beachfront dining. One of our favorite family activities is to go biking along the boardwalk on Balboa. While bike riding, we always take time to stop for a refreshing ice cream at The Stuft Surfer Cafe.


They have been serving up beachfront dining for breakfast and lunch since 1963. Located right along the Balboa boardwalk, there is plenty of bike racks to park your bike to dine at this cool restaurant. There are also plenty of outdoor picnic benches for dining with umbrella’s for shade from the hot sun.


This restaurant is known for much more than just their ice cream cones. They have always made a “mean” Spanish Omelet, and some have been known to travel long distances just to get their hands on one of their fish burgers.


On a warm weekend day, there is usually a line that wraps around the building, but we guarantee that the wait is completely worth every minute of it. Load up the bikes into the back of your family car, and head down to the Balboa Boardwalk for a family bike ride, and lunch at The Stuft Surfer Cafe.


The Stuft Surfer Cafe is located at 101 E 15th Street in Newport Beach.
