The Ramos House Cafe
Chris and I were in San Juan Capistrano antiquing and fell in love with the cutest little part of town called The Los Rios Historic District. We walked around this quant town that was just on the other side of the train tracks and came across the best brunch. I love brunch! The restaurant is called The Ramos House Cafe. The restaurant was casual and very welcoming. We were greeted by a kitty sitting on the hostess's chair and a dog on the front porch. The dining area is on a lovely little patio with a fireplace, heat lamps and blankets in case you get too cold. I had a delicious crab hash w/ smoked bacon scrambled eggs and a pomegranate mimosa. There's so much on the menu I want to try and one of them is the Bloody Mary which looks more like a meal than a drink. The plates are filling and really could be shared. Try the black sea salt that's on the table. It looks like ground up coal but it's salt and tastes like it. This adorably town would be a great day trip on the Amtrak or Metrolink. You can visit The Mission San Juan Capistrano which is within walking distance from The Los Rios Historic District and the next stop on the line I believe is San Clemente which would put you directly on the beach. Can't wait to go back!
