Fodor's Review

It may be worth hopping the Amtrak to San Juan Capistrano just for the chance to have breakfast or lunch at one of Orange County's most beloved restaurants. Here's your chance to visit one of Los Rios Historic District's board-and-batten homes dating back to 1881. This café sits practically on the railroad tracks across from the depot—nab a table on the patio and dig into a hearty breakfast, such as the smoked bacon scramble. The weekend brunch ($40 per person) includes champagne, memorable mac-and-cheese with wild mushrooms, and chocolate bacon coffee cake. Every item on the menu illustrates chef-owner John Q. Humphreys's creative hand.
