  • What ? A 4 -Star Restaurant in La Habra?...

    In a modest town such as La Habra, one expects to go out of town for fine dining, at least immediately east to more chic Fullerton and Brea. This would be the case if there was not The Cat and Custard Cup on historic Whittier Blvd. A truly delightful culinary establishment is well hidden in the middle of the nowhere that is La Habra. This is an...

  • Eat Mex at Gorgeous El Cholo

    El Cholo has a chain of beautiful and widely touted restaurants in L.A. and Orange counties. Gladly, modest La Habra can claim having one, located along the locally famous Whittier Blvd, known for its classic Latino vibe. The colorful eaterie is just off Harbor Blvd, the avenue leading to Disneyland. Read El Cholo's story on website. very...

  • Have the best Fish Tacos in Town!

    Taco Nazo is a city favorite of mine. There are a few other locations (I believe no more than 6) but the one in La Habra is the one I know and the best overall location, off Beach Blvd. Choose from tacos, burritos, tortas (sandwiches) and mariscos (seafood). I almost always get the popular taco pesado (see below).If you love spicy food, you must...

  • Un Poco de Mexico

    Even if you have been to the other El Colos, this one is the BEST! The full menu is available in the bar, and they have the greatest margaritas. In the picture, you might notice the mariachis behind my friends and me. They're there every Friday and Saturday. And on most Fridays there is an outside grill for the cantina tacos (75 cents each)! The...

    For So California visitors and those already here, head to this independent coffeehouse . There are various locations, but I just visited this one in La Habra.

    Movie tickets

    by TinKan Written Jun 26, 2003

    The La Habra 16 movie theater is located on Imperial Highway. They have, as the name suggest, 16 theaters and are open from 9am until the wee hours of the morning when a new movie is out. The cost for tickets is not so bad when you do the matinee thing where you can get to see a first run movie for $5.75. The matinees are normally before 530pm so pick a movie before that time.

    Good Ol' La Habra, California

    by marinarena Updated Oct 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some locals complain of the lack of freeway access here, especially my mother. La Habra is easy to miss if travelling by freeway in southern California. The closest freeway exit to LH is the 57exit off Lambert Rd , a few miles away (about 10 min drive) from the town's center .

    La Habra is the exceptional town of Orange county, the only one with the higher tax rate on purchases! Boo! She really wants to be in higher taxing Los Angeles county! As of 2011, the sales tax is at a rate of 8.25, the same as the city of L.A. and L.A towns within the county. Check site for any updates on the tax.

La Habra Local Customs

  • Get Cheap(er) Gas in L.H.!

    If you are drifting from the freeways and happen to be in the area, you'll be in luck! La Habra tends to have less expensive gas than in other cities, about $ 0.05- 0.30 cents less than the L.A. average ! So, if La Habra can be known for something locally, it can be deemed the "cheap gas" city of Orange county! I know, it's a silly thing really but...

    This is a very bad intersection as many folks use the right turn only lane as their shortcut around the other drivers.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Westridge is a beautiful hillside public course that is definatively off the beaten path in So Cal.
    There is a man-made lake and though the yardage is small, the layout is a good challenge for the intermediate and skilled players.

    The signature hole is #16, a 337-yard, par 4.

    Fees are $50-80

    Equipment: A collared shirt and bermuda shorts! No denim
