Treating each customer as part of the family is our primary goal. We open our arms and our hearts, inviting you and your loved ones to come down to our Cafe and taste what we mean.

The Richey Family has been dedicated to providing beautiful edible works of art for our couples for 25 years in the historic Dana Point Harbor. Diane Richey, the owner, excelled in the fashion and travel industries. Having a love for design and hospitality, she opened It’s All About the Cake in 1999 with the help of her son, Jordan. In 2001, she established What A Dish Café and Catering and remains the beloved face of our company. We are a family company and together we run our bakery and cafe as if we were feeding our own. Each cake and dish are made with love. Our talented team of pastry chefs and designers use wholesome, pure ingredients and cutting-edge techniques to create a product that is truly superior in quality and with an unparalleled attention to detail.
