Did you know that the White House is the oldest restaurant in Orange County, and has been open continuously since 1918? Like many other spots in Laguna, it used to be a popular hangout for the old Hollywood set. Today it's a hangout for the young O.C. set who spill out of the doors and line the street on Friday and Saturday nights to listen to live music and party hearty. So, if it's a quiet dinner you're seeking, perhaps you should go elsewhere on weekend evenings. The rest of the time, because the bar is a separate room and the live music is not too rowdy, it's a perfectly pleasant, moderately priced place to dine for brunch, lunch or dinner.

Intrepid alimentary explorers that we are, we have just discovered a restaurant that few natives have ever happened upon, and what a find! Nestled behind Laguna Village, it clings to the cliff just up the hill from the Hotel Laguna. There has always been a small sandwich place here with a breathtaking view at the back of this rambling collection of shops; but a little more than a year ago, it came under new ownership and was significantly remodeled. The dining “room” at The Cliff is completely outdoors, as is the cocktail area around a fire pit in the center of the retail area.

Glori Fickling There is, without question, no more delicious way to launch the week than with a wonderful Sunday brunch. At many restaurants, this repast is synonymous with lavish buffet presentations. For those of us who prefer being pampered with full service menus, however, Laguna Beach happily boasts at least two such enticing restaurants. Each of these offers a prix fixe bill of fare that further includes complimentary sparkling wine. What more dazzling setting for this Sabbath day delight than the Mexican Riviera brunch at beautiful Las Brisas where the shimmering blue Pacific Ocean outside your table is enhanced with the splendor of colorful rose gardens.

W e are faithful devotees of Vietnamese food, and we recently became big fans of Phans 55. Tucked away in an apartment complex right off Jamboree Road in Irvine, this is the hippest and most attractive Vietnamese restaurant outside of Vietnam that we've ever come across, and the food is top notch as well.
