The Ramos House Cafe, San Juan Capistrano - 11.27.05

We were both starving one Sunday morning. We decided to drive to San Juan Capistrano but most of the local restaurants which offered brunch had long waiting lists. We had been to Ramos House before but this time was different. We opted for the Sunday Brunch - - a four- course meal for $30.

Ramos House is located by the train depot and across railroad tracks. It looks like a small house because it is a small house. After a short wait, we were seated at one of the handful of tables in this quaint outdoor restaurant.

The Brunch includes a choice of beverage, a starter, a main entree and a dessert. For starters, Jay picked the Sweet Corn Hush Puppies w/ Sweet Pepper Jam and Anna Lisa selected a bowl of pumpkin soup. Really, we tried a bit of each and enjoyed both as well. The starters made us look forward to the main course.

Jay's main course was the
Smoked Bacon, Baby Spinach & Caramelized Onion Scramble - - yum. He throoughly devoured this dish and Anna Lisa had a little bit of it as well. She opted for the Large Plate of Basil Cured Salmon w/ Herb Sauce & Toast Points. As expected, it was a little salty but really delicious and perfect for a Sunday morning.

Ramos House is one of those unique places worth returning to and spreading the word about to all we know. You will likely find a wait on a weekend morning. You will likely be glad that you stuck around because you will enjoy the experience.
