Went here on my last day in OC just to get some variety during a visit. I wish I had come on my first day. Excellent food and enormous portions. Try one of the burritos or the pesto benedict.

We ate here for lunch twice, and it was great! The food is fresh and well priced. The turkey sandwich and salads were very tasty, and the iced tea was really good. You can sit indoor or outside on the patio. It's a super easy...More
