First time going. Went for Mothers day brunch and was not dissappointed. Service was great. Though the music was loud for this old girl.... was very entertaining...

I had first heard about the Costa Mesa Gypsy Den, but thanks to one of my dear friends, had gotten the chance to check out this fun gem! I've only been here once and for Sunday Brunch, but honestly had the most pleasant experience--I quite literally just told my cousin that when she gets into town, we're definitely coming here for br ... read more

Delicious! Bottomless mimosas and spicy bloody Mary's. Great portion of food nicely cooked. Cute patio. Live music. It's not fancy but it's great!

Yesterday was our visit here and I absolutely fell in love. Everything from the atmosphere, painting, music they played, and all around vibes was great. Loved their Myan mocha it's a must try!

Hanging with a long lost friend
Great location. I love the food. The coffee is organic and has amazing flavor. As soon as you walk in you walk into a unique restaurant work of variety of chairs, colors textures, with a Zen environment.

Great brunch menu and delicious coffee. I like atmosphere, very laid back and chill. Only downside was the tortillason my breakfast tacos completely fell apart.

Visiting the area between festivals. Three days in Santa Ana, three visits to Gypsy Den! The staff are super awesome and helpful! They were very accommodating to my specific diet (gf, soy-free, vegan) and helped to pick or modify the best items. Sweet potato polenta fries with chimchurri sauce are incredible! Also love he decor and t ... read more

I had dinner here for the first time and was more than impressed. The vegan options are delicious and there are so many to choose from.

We ate outside and it couldn' ... read more

I would say the menu is hit or miss, but when you do order the right thing, it's a home run! Definitely on the list of winners are their stuffed peppers with goat cheese, grilled chicken and quinoa salad, and their vegetarian chili that tastes better than most meat-based chili. You jsut have to stay away from items like their chai, w ... read more

I haven't always been a fan of Gypsy Den. I ended up going to brunch with a few people and got the croissant breakfast sandwich with bacon, I forgot I had wanted it with turkey but it was too late to change!

Cute little trendy place. Ordered the burrito, which was huge. Comes with potatoes inside, and carnitas. Also ordered the whiskey coffee which was pretty nasty, too bitter and bland. Sunday is brunch all day and is crowded.

So far we really like this place. Great spot to sit outside and have a glass of wine. Nachos are great, too.

The only reason why I am not giving this place five stars is because there is one particular waiter who seems very out of it ( it looks like he partied all night and just came to work the next day still drunk). The first time we came, we assumed he had a rough night but this behavior has been consistent. Personally, I  don't apprecia ... read more

Saturday morning they have the brunch menu. You can't order off of the regular menu during brunch. Also, if you come early, there's like no one here. The peace and quiet is kinda nice.

Good vibe and friendly folks at Gypsy Den Santa Ana! We were able to be seated on the patio for lunch, with no wait! My friend said you can't go wrong with their tuna melt! It sure looked good.

Loved the one in Anaheim which trumps this one in service, but the atmosphere here is amazing and just unique compared to the average Starbucks. The food seemed a bit bland this visit which is unusual since I like it usually, of course I'll try it again but today's visit didn't have the usual magic.

Training needed!
Decor is fun and quirky, music and vibe is relaxed and no-fuss. Food was pretty good as were. drinks. The wait staff however, while pleasant, seemed as if they needed direction or training, either that or they were all new!

Gypsy Den is a must if you're in Santa Ana. My favorite breakfast combination is the chai tea latte (to die for) and the french toast, if you have more of a sweet-tooth like me! For Lunch, I would suggest the grilled chicken sandwich!
